Menu Plan Monday 7/25-7/31

Good Monday Morning! This weeks menu is boring, but I am still going strong on the 37 day challenge. Only 22 days left. Only, ha! I think I may end up making the turkey I have in the deep freezer. Any suggestions? I've never made a turkey before!

Monday lunch toast
Dinner roast

Tuesday lunch raost sandwiches
Dinner breakfast

Wednesday lunch mac and cheese
Dinner lasagna

Thursday ravioli
Dinner chili dogs

Friday lunch sandwiches
Dinner pizza

Saturday lunch tuna melts
Dinner steak and potatoes

Sunday lunch ravioli
dinner breakfast


  1. Have you ever roasted a chicken? Roasing a turkey is just like that....only on steroids!lol
    A turkey just takes longer.
    I think I often do is to roast a turkey breat side down. The white meat(breat meat)cooks/dries out faster than the dark meat of the leg/thighs. So if you turn the turkey upside down, as the dark meat cooks, the fat/juices run into the white/breast meat and keeps it moister.
    The only problem is turning the turkey rightside up after you get it out of the You need another pair of strong hands to help with that.
    And once you eat all you want off your turkey, you are set for leftover turkey dishes for days.....sandwiches, tetrazzinni, turkey soup, turkey chili, turkey fajitas, etc.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…
