My in-laws bought a bunch of food for Easter dinner and are going out of town immediately afterwards, so they gave me a big bag of turkey breasts and drumsticks. I think this means I can get by with just going to the grocery store for a few staples like milk, and stocking up on produce at the farmer’s market.
I turned to one of my favorite food blogs, Kalyn’s Kitchen, to find some ideas for leftover turkey recipes, so they are playing a large part in this week’s menu.
Organic Butternut Squash Ravioli in a Brown Butter Sage Sauce – the ravioli was found in the frozen section of a local health food market at a decent price
Slow Cooker Turkey – it’s starting to get really warm here, so I won’t have to use the oven and heat up the whole kitchen to make my turkey
Coconut Lime Turkey Soup I love Thai inspired flavors
I know I’m making a lot of soups lately, but it’s easy to make a big batch and then I have leftovers that reheat well to take to work.
Here are my thoughts on last week’s new recipes:
Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans Burritos Loved this! Even my husband enjoyed the burritos without any meat.
Slow Cooker Honey Hoisin Chicken I would make this again, it only took a few minutes to prep everything for the crockpot
