Saturday
Lunch: Split pea soup
Dinner: Roast turkey (unstuffed) au jus with roast potatoes
I don’t often roast a turkey; and I blame a sudden fit of madness for trying it on Saturday. I spent all afternoon making chicken broth then most of the evening finishing off a turkey that caused so much steam my fire alarm went off twice. It was, however, succulent and very delicious.

Sunday
Lunch: Late brunch of eggs and toast.
Dinner: We went over to a sibling’s house and had the traditional holiday meal (TM). It was, as per usual, so much better than mine. I did, however, feel better when I walked in and noticed her fire alarm was disconnected.

Monday
Lunch: Turkey wraps
Dinner: I made meatloaf a few weeks back and froze a double-serving. I reheated them and served them with green beans and carrots. It was a quick and tasty meal.

Tuesday
Lunch: Out with a friend.
Dinner: Cheeseburgers, all dressed. I had something else planned but by the time I got home I had completely forgotten what it was supposed to be. The hamburger was thawed, so that’s what I made. BTW we don’t normally eat so much hamburger but (a) it was on sale, and (b) after two days of turkey, we needed a break from poultry in general.

Wednesday
Lunch: Vegetarian cassoulet (from the freezer)
Dinner: With friends coming over, a fridge full of broth and poultry, and rainy weather on the forecast — making Chicken soup seems perfectly reasonable to me. Besides, I need a couple of servings for future lunches as my freezer’s getting low on ready-meals.
The soup was well appreciated and not just because I added lots of ginger and garlic to the fennel, carrots, celery and onion I usually add; but I’m sure it helped.

Thursday
Lunch: Chicken soup (from last night), and whole wheat crackers
Dinner: Southewestern chicken. No, not really. I wimped out and had boxed-frozen medium-spice buffalo wings. Yes, I know they were bad for me. I had them with a side of air-popped popcorn and a big glass of milk (not for the health, but just to scrape the spice out of my mouth. The wings were good, but I am a spice-wimp. I did cook up the white kidney beans though (soaked them overnight and then put them in the crockpot to cook with a big handfull of dried sage leaves and enough water to cover).

Friday
Lunch: Vegetarian cassoulet, the last of it.
Dinner: Out — no clue where, it’s his choice (although I suspect we’ll be going to one of the rotissery restaurants in Montreal. Rotissery chicken is a really big thing here — every restaurant seems to offer it; but only one or two do it right (note to self – review the restaurant and the meal).
