What is for dinner? Another week, another plan.

posted in: extra 0


To my husband’s chagrin, it turns out I have one last turkey left in the freezer from my November get-the-best-turkey-deal efforts.

I like turkey weeks because it offers so much bang for the cooking buck. That is, I like it until that cooked turkey is sitting on my counter and I have to pull the meat off the bone.

But turkey broth – just bones covered in water, simmered overnight in the crockpot – is absolutely delicious. Since it’s grilling season instead of soup season, I’ll be freezing the broth in cup-sized portions to use in sauces and cooking.
