Menu Plan Monday - Week of Oct 18

Sorry, I've been MIA in the Menu Plan Monday posts.

With hosting a potluck Thanksgiving party the week before Thanksgiving and then the actual Thanksgiving weekend, I was sooo overwhelmed with Turkey leftovers, that we ate from the freezer/pantry for about two weeks. It Saved us alot of money though.
(the freezer/pantry is looking a little bare now, so it's time to start planning again)

Monday - Curried Chicken (recipe below)
Tuesday - Cheese Tortelline in Meat Sauce (from freezer)
Thursday - Sheppard's Pie
Friday - Homemade Pizza
Saturday - leftovers
Sunday - Roast Chicken, potatoes, veg.

Easy Curried Chicken Recipe

1 tblsp of veg oil
1 whole chicken (cut up)
1 onion diced
2 cloves garlic
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 cup of diced carrots
1 cup of peas
2 cups of chicken broth
1-2 tblsp of curry paste (depends on how much heat you want)

I saute the onion and garlic in the oil.  Add the chicken pieces, and brown all over.  Add the remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
(I serve this usually with rice.)

Easy Peazy.

What are you eating this week?

I'm linking up to Laura's, Crystal's, Erin's and Lisa's party.

Thank you, thank you! My son came home from Japan, loving curry, and I'm short on recipes for it that are EASY!

We try to get 7-9 turkeys at Thankgiving time to freeze and use throughout the year, because it is so inexpensive. I throw turkey in my curry all the time now!

We are eating lots of beans this week! Rice and bean burritos, lentil tacos, black beans burgers, and pasta e fagioli.
