Yesterday I spent the morning prepping lots of meals for the week. I thawed out all the turkey I cooked on Valentine’s day and decided to use it all up. I made a huge mess, but it’s worth it because now I’m done cooking for the week!
First up, I made turkey soup with whole wheat noodles separate. The noodles get all mushy if you put them in the soup. Plus I like to control my noodle portion.
Second, I did some turkey fajita filling with lots of veggies. I portioned it out into baggies so I can just heat it and pop it into a tortilla. Yum, that is totally what I’m having for lunch today:)
Salads of course. Must have a few salads. These ones are romaine, turkey, carrots, fat free feta, and cranberries. Later that day I decide to add beets as well.
I am not the biggest fan of dark meat, but when cooked as BBQ pulled turkey, it’s really delicious. I make this with turkey thigh and drumstick meat that has been removed from the bone. You just pop it into the crock pot with your favorite BBQ sauce. I used one from a local restaurant. Set it on low and cook for 4-5 hours. The meat gets perfectly tender and is great on sandwiches. I’m letting my family eat this dish though and I’m sticking to the white meat/sans sugar dishes. Gotta start spring cleaning the old diet!
And lastly, whole wheat banana crunch muffins. These are also for my family. Not that I’m not going to steal a bit of Val’s every time she eats one :).
Woohoo! I’m done cooking and it’s onto Spring cleaning the house! I think I might need medication, I’m not sure why cleaning is so appealing right now. Probably because it is gorgeous right now in SLC!! I love it. But ya know, next week or so when it’s snowing again, you’ll find me rocking in the corner cursing mother nature :). But until then…HAPPY DAYS!!
Do you meal prep?
Do you like Spring cleaning or hate it with a passion and pretend it doesn’t exist?
