Menu Plan Monday!

Are you tired of turkey yet? We have been eating it every day since last Wednesday! Yesterday, I finally got my favorite turkey leftover...a turkey sandwich with mayo and lots of pepper! I had it with a side of stuffing and my mashed sweet potatoes! It was yummy! Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving leftover meal?
We are still away visiting family, so I do not have a menu plan again this week. I decided instead to share some of my favorite recipes for leftovers!
Last year, we had a bunch of turkey left from our dinner and next day meal, so I decided to make a turkey pot pie. The recipe ended up making enough for two, so one got put in the freezer for later! I like to use, so I did a quick search, and found this recipe for Leftover Turkey Pot Pie If you decide to give it a try, let me know what you think!
I also love my recipe for mashed sweet potatoes! Growing up, I was never a fan of the yam casserole with marshmallows on top. I would eat the marshmallows, and leave the rest. Then, when my husband and I got married, our caterer served mashed sweet potatoes. It is the only thing I remember eating the whole night. Besides the cake of course! They were SO.GOOD! I have come across a few recipes that I have tried, but this year, since we were away, I didn't have any of them with me! As a result of "winging it," I think I made the best ones yet! To make them, you need:
about 5 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1tsp pumpkin pie spice

I chopped the potatoes into about 1-inch pieces and boiled them in lightly salted water; drained and put into the bowl of a mixer. I mashed them a little to get them started, and then began adding the ingredients. You may need to add a little more/less milk depending on how many potatoes you have to reach the desired consistency. I didn't measure, I just poured, and I think it was about 1/2 cup! The same with the pumpkin pie spice! I might have added a little more because I like the flavor! If you don't, you could easily substitute cinnamon!
If you are like me and never cared for sweet potatoes, you should really consider giving these a try!

And of course, if you just want a sandwich with mayo and pepper, that is okay, too!!

I would love to hear from you if you have tried these or have any other great ideas to share!

And of course, I am linking up with I'm an Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday for more awesome meal ideas!
