Menu Plan Monday 6/29-7/5

**Another week is upon us so that means it is time for another menu plan! This is just a plan and it could change on the cook’s whim!

Last week’s menus went well. Once again I have plenty of leftovers to use for lunches for the next few days!

Last week, I found some markdown meat and sale eggs. I am kicking myself for not going back and getting more eggs when they were 99cents/dozen (cheapest I have seen in a long while)! With finding the markdown meat, I will be able to go a few days into this week without having to worry about doing my big shopping trip!

We are being “homebodies” over the holiday weekend! Hubby has house projects that he is wanting to complete on his four day weekend. We are also marching along with 150 other people from our church in a 4th of July parade with our church's float.

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day.

Stewed Turkey or Chicken Sandwiches

I took the leftover turkey breast from last week(it was about ½ of the total breast) and my leftover gravy and mixed it up together. There wasn’t enough of the gravy to moisten all the turkey so I added about ¼ cup of water along with some cornstarch and milk to thicken up the turkey mixture. The turkey shredded as I stirred it and it heated through. Once it was done, I serve on hamburger buns.

You can use chicken as well for this recipe.

My MIL makes this fresh rather than using leftover. Her recipe is something like this….
1 whole chicken cooked and deboned
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can chicken broth(or broth from the chicken cooking)

Mix altogether. Season with pepper or as desired. Serve on hamburger buns.

I've never made cinnamon rolls completely from scratch. My kids love them. I'll have to give your recipe a try. Yummy!
