On the menu: we call this soup weather!

I've been making menu plans on the fly the last few weeks, but last night I sat down and wrote one out. (Scanner's acting up, so you get to miss out on my sloppy handwriting! ;) It's kind of soupy, but it's a good time of year for that with high temps under 70 degrees and all those extra Thanksgiving calories we just consumed!

Here's what I came up with:

  • Mon: potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Tue: pizza at Nithya and Naveen's house (yay!)
  • Wed: our friend Jose from Peru comes over and the Hubs cooks South American food
  • Thr: turkey enchiladas
  • Fri: 3-bean soup (kidney beans, Peruvian beans, split peas)
What I didn't come up with: what to do with a bunch of leftover gravy. I have about 2 cups leftover, and I'm not wild about it, but the Hubs liked it. I guess I could freeze it for later. Any other suggestions?

Thanks to Jenna at Chive Talkin' for the menu plan inspiration!

One more thing: for the next 30 minutes, I'm donating $2 of every t-shirt sold in my shop to Heifer International. Would you like to help out and get some shopping done? (Read more here or start shopping!)


  1. Turkey enchiladas sounds really neat. I've used gravy on chicken breasts that I just cook on the stove top with some rosemary and thyme and whatever other herby stuff I feel like. I'm in the same boat though, not too into gravy but my husband's a fan.

  2. Summer: I haven't even decided on an enchilada recipe yet, so hopefully they turn out yummy!

    Great suggestion on the chicken...I like that kinda stuff! Also, the Hubs can dump gravy on his and I can skip it.

  3. Potato soup and grilled cheese yum! I have a relatively new blog,

  4. Hey! So good to see you again. Although, I admit I miss your handwritten menu... maybe next week? We love gravy and could seriously drink the stuff with a straw. I am not sure what else to do with it other than put over chicken, turkey and tators! I love this time of year, perfect for chili and soup. (((hugs)))

What do you have to say about that?
