It’s kind of an easy week this week!

I have to buy:

  • Turkey tenderloin
  • Potatoes, pearl onions, carrots, Brussel sprouts for the roast

I already have on hand:

  • Everything for the burgers since they were on the menu last week
  • Broth for the “turkey roast”
  • Frozen vegetables and rice for the leftover turkey
  • Pasta
  • Chicken sausage (leftover from the lasagna, it’s even already sliced)
  • Homemade tomato alfredo sauce in the freezer from when I made a whole lot of it here.
  • Onion & bell pepper
  • Oil
  • Chicken
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Greek yogurt (I bought a big tub last week when I make the Chicken Tikka)
  • Shredded cheese
