Confession:  I ruined my turkey. 
Life took over and I didn’t end up with a good day to cook it last week.  I HAD to cook it Saturday but it wasn’t done before we went to my son’s cub scouts banquet & I had no idea how long we would be there.  My “solution” turn the oven down so it would finish cooking with out burning.  Nope, the middle didn’t cook & the outside was overcooked.  Lesson learned.

My weekend menu is up in the air as we are trying to determine our plans

Monday
Navy Bean Soup with homemade bread (recipe to follow if good)

Tuesday
Roast with Carrots, Potatoes & mushrooms in crockpot

Wednesday
Pasta made with ham from freezer

Thursday

I have a couple repeats from past weeks that I didn’t get around to making, and several recipes to post.  Last week we had 2 meatless meals.  I am happy to report that my husband nor my kids staged a revolt.  Although, they did all start chanting “Where’s the beef” when I served the rice & beans.  They think they’re sooo funny!  Derrick said he didn’t have a problem eating it again, as long as I didn’t make it a weekly meal.  I’m good with that.
