I don't know. Maybe turkey & mashed potatoes, maybe turkey noodle soup. I don't feel like either right now so I'm not sure.

For breakfast, I had oatmeal and ww toast. Ds1 had breakfast pizza at school and ds2 is home with daddy and I have no clue what they had.
Lunch was a turkey sandwich on ww, chips and homemade clam chowder for me, fish for ds2 and a burrito for ds1. No clue on dh. I'm sure he'll eat something involving turkey.

Coming back for December. I'm hoping to try tons of new recipes this month! :

Dinner tonight will be stuffed manicotti. The filling is Italian sausage, tomato-based sauce, & Ricotta cheese, among other things. We're having steamed broccoli, a mixed greens salad, and garlic bread with it.

Tonight will be beef tongue and potato hash. We'll probably have apple/fennel salad with that, unless another veg jumps out and grabs me. Maybe some broccoli...

Tomorrow will be lamb burgers/patties, and probably kale.

Tonight I made a cool dinner. I mixed ground beef with egg, salsa, taco spices and crushed tortilla chips (like you would for meatloaf) and then gently pressed a thin layer of it in a pie pan. I baked it til done, covered with lots of cheese and then poured on a layer of corn bread batter. Baked it til done and served with sour cream, salsa, etc. The kids were nuts for it. It was basically a tamale pie, for those who have had that before, but by mixing the meat up that way, it all held together and wasn't so messy for the kiddos, plus I got a few eggs in them as a bonus!
I also shaped some of the meat mixture into little patties and baked them for quick breakfasts, lunches, snacks...

Well, I had good intentions for last night, but TWO of my kids started throwing up, so the plans went out the window. The other, non-vomiting kid and I had an egg in a window and bacon.

Tonight we're having grilled boneless pork chops, purple hull peas, steamed broccoli, and Annie's shells & white cheddar.
