I have a day off work this week so I’m cooking up a turkey dinner (I am thankful for half-price Thanksgiving turkeys!). Perhaps not your traditional way to celebrate Remembrance day, but what better to do on a day off than cook something yummy? Here is what else is on the menu:
Baking: Carrot cake with yogurt icing (this is a yummy and healthy whole wheat recipe and the icing is made with yogurt cheese – check back for the recipe later this week)
Apple Honey Pie (a perfect way to end a turkey dinner)
Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash and Rice & Lentils (This was a real winner! There were no leftovers at all! I used a mixture of brown and red rice in the rice dish, I just discovered red rice this summer and love it.)
Freezer Meal – I still have soups in the freezer from the Food Party we had in October
Turkey Dinner – roast turkey, brown rice stuffing, sweet potatoes
Pasta with homemade tomato sauce
Next week I will be cooking lots of dishes with turkey leftovers! Hope there are yummy things cooking in your kitchen this week. For more inspiration, check out orgjunkie.com.
