I was determined to thoroughly clean the refrigerator, too, but didn't succeed in that although I did eliminate almost all the leftovers in it. Tonight's dinner was soup made from some of the leftovers. In the fridge I found about a cup and a half of leftover homemade vegetable beef soup, part of a can of diced tomatoes and most of a can of Rotel tomatoes. I dumped all of that in the wok, added a handful of Dreamfields elbow macaroni, a smidge of garlic salt, and some freshly ground black pepper and set it on low and a few minutes later our revamped soup was ready. It was excellent and there was just enough to feed us both so we're starting the week with very few leftovers.

So, on to this week's menu!
Monday night's dinner is seasoned turkey tenderloin with steamed spinach, edamame, and tossed salad.
The rest of the week we'll have:
Leftover turkey tenderloin with low carb gravy, with wild rice and steamed green beans
Chipotle chicken with tossed salad and buttered carrots
Cauliflower Leek Soup with Carbquick bread sticks
Stir fried vegetables with beef
YOYO (You're On Your Own) night when we eat leftovers, sandwiches, etc.
And that's it! Short, sweet, and not a lot of intense cooking going on this week. But it's all healthy, low in carbs, and thrifty. It works for us!
