I only cooked a few of the meals I planned for last week. My in-laws did not come to our town and Jeff wanted to smoke some meat and we certainly had plenty to eat, just did not eat what I planned.
But my menus are not written in stone, just possible plans.
I've planned this weeks menus and I think I will stick them pretty close. Our weekend plans are a little up in the air so I picked some things I might cook but they are quite likely to change.
All of this week's menus that call for ground meat will use ground turkey. I have not found any good deals on ground beef recently but did stock up on ground white turkey with specials at 2 different stores. I think we ended up with 17 pounds of ground turkey.
this is a simple casserole made with 1 pound of ground meat browned with 1/2 an onion and bell pepper, then mixed with 1 cup salsa, 1 1/2 cups corn, salt and pepper to taste. Put in a greased pie pan and top with 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 1 cup crushed corn chips. bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking
