Monday meal plan: Turkey, baked mushroom chicken, sweet potatoes and more!

Posted December 24, 2012


This week on the meal plan we have turkey breast, creamy mushroom chicken and raspberry cheesecake!





Sweet potato casserole


Pumpkin cookies with cream cheese icing

Tuesday – Merry Christmas!

Eating (too much) with family – I’m bringing Raspberry Cheesecake


We are taking my mother-in-law out for dinner either Wednesday or Thursday

Leftover turkey breast and sweet potato casserole


Creamy baked mushroom chicken served on pasta with a side of steamed broccoli

The basic recipe I use can be found on the Campbell’s website and the recipe is called Creamy Chicken Bake. I do make some modifications to this recipe.

Modifications: I usually use a can of non-condensed creamy mushroom soup from Progresso instead of the Campbell’s condensed soup. The Progresso Meal Starters Portabella sauce also works well with this. To the soup mixture, I also add about ¼ cup of light sour cream. I also add sautéed onions and 8 oz. fresh mushrooms to the sauce. Finally, I add pepper to spice it up a little.

    Merry Christmas, all! Nakabi, yes, yorkshire pudding from scratch. It's been forever since I had it. My sister was going to make it, but I didn't realize until dinner was on the table that she had changed her mind, so no YP tonight :( I'll make some when I get back home. Sometimes I make toad in the hole too. Have you had that? (Sausage baked into yorkshire pudding).

    Wonderful tip on rooting rosemary! I didn't know it rooted so easily. I was going to suggest going to the guy who sells herbs at the NC State Farmers Market.

    nakabi, rosemary grows beautifully from cuttings. If you have one, or know someone with one, get a cutting, plop it in some good potting soil and keep it well watered. It should grow roots soon enough.

    M-hubby's request, stuffed shells, T-whatever my Ex's Mom is making, lasagna and turkey I think, W-road food and whatever my Mom is making, Th-Mom again, F-road food and whatever my FIL is serving (usually take-out), S&S FIL's special again (there'll be a restaurant visit in there, and then more take out unless they let me cook them dinner again this visit, which they should since we're bringing down some smoke pork chops from Mae Farms at the Farmers Market).
