Weekly Menu Plan 137 offers delicious ways to repurpose Thanksgiving leftovers, as well as a few fresh dinners to round out the week.
Hello, Friends! I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving filled with friends, family, laughter, and of course, lots of food! We had both family and friends over for the holiday, and then more family the day after, so our leftovers didn’t last long. However, the Weekly Menu Plan 137 has several delicious options to repurpose those Thanksgiving leftovers, as well as a few other fun and fresh recipes. Take a look:
On Monday, Cheryl/Pook’s Pantry gives us a bright and fresh option with her Langostino Pasta. She uses tender parpardelle pasta with a buttery wine sauce tossed with langostino tails. If langostino tails are in short supply, go ahead and substitute shrimp or scallops. Whatever you do, be sure to serve it with a heel of crusty artisan bread.
I make good use of leftover turkey on Tuesday with my Turkey Biscuit Pot Pie Casserole. Think chicken pot pie, but with turkey and topped with golden, flaky biscuits instead. I make sure to have extra turkey in the freezer to make this one year ’round.
On Wednesday, Jenni/Pastry Chef Online makes the most delicious Thanksgiving Shepherd’s Pie. This is one recipe that is perfectly at home with just about any leftovers, so long as it’s topped with toasted, buttery mashed potatoes.
On Thursday, Erin/The Speckled Palate brings the comforting flavors of french onion soup a perfectly cooked steak with her Homemade French Onion Steak Pasta. Lord have mercy on us all! This is one recipe that is not to be missed. Pair it with a simple caesar salad to round out the meal.
Cheryl is back on Friday to bring us a lighter, veggie infused dinner with her Mediterranean Chicken and Vegetables. Just look at all of those fresh vegetables! That along with the Mediterranean inspired spices on the chicken make this a meal that is worthy of regular menu rotation.
For a little something extra, Jenni shares The Best Beer Cheese Sauce which is perfect for dipping hot pretzels, veggies–just about anything! Whip up a batch to snack while watching football or Hallmark movies over the weekend!
Now that another Thanksgiving is in the books, it’s officially the beginning of the holiday baking season. What better way to start than with Erin’s Raspberry Linzer Snowflake Cookies? These festive sweeties are light and buttery with a punch of raspberry inside. Linzer shortbread cookies are one of my favorite holiday treats!
Be sure to come back next week for another delicious menu plan!
