Tomorrow is a busy day for me, and a long one as I will merchandise three stores, then demo from 3-8, giving away chips. I will take the laptop along so I can enter my data as my projects get completed.
I wanted to eat out tonight, felt lazy, but I talked myself out of it. There is almost never a real need for us to eat out, and we have eliminated it almost completely. I know that we are going out tomorrow for lunch as we will be out of town. We will go to our favorite Hong Kong Buffet. To make up in advance, I thought we should eat really healthy, and cheaply tonight.
We roasted a turkey on Monday, which means lots of turkey all week, so that is a good buy. Hubby boils the bones and added vegetables and makes a marvelous broth to cook with, so that is what I started my meal plan with.
I took a couple of cups of broth, and brought it to a boil. Into the simmering broth I tossed a large diced potato. I sliced in a carrot, added a quarter of an onion, chopped, two large cloves of garlic and a crown of broccoli. When the veggies were tender I added chopped turkey, about two cups. Salted it lightly, and some black pepper.
I resisted the urge to pour a can of mushroom soup over it, or sprinkle it with cheese. I do both of those things a lot, and they really just mask the veggies and add calories and fat to the meal.
I sprinkled a little soy sauce on mine, and had a few Rosemary and olive oil Triscuits on the side. I am going to be adding more Rosemary to my cooking.
