This past week both Christopher and I had a lot going on at work, and knew that our days would be a bit longer, so we wanted meal time to be quick and easy.  We planned ahead and made a turkey on Labour Day, so that we could eat that for the following few days. 

On Tuesday we made some sides and covered everything in gravy:

We used the last of the meat up on Thursday in a turkey, Alfredo, artichoke casserole.

On Friday night we made sweet and spicy pork and asparagus, served over rice.

This weekend was relaxing and fun.  Last night we met up with a bunch of friends at Beer Brothers to celebrate our friend Jocelyn's birthday.  We mingled in a private room, had dinner, and played trivia.  The trivia was organized by the birthday girl, and only included our group of friends.  We were out late, and had a great time!  For dinner Christopher and I shared lamb kofta skewers and a white pizza:

Breakfasts this weekend included waffles (with Saskatoon berries and banana), and skillets.

For dinner this evening we made a scalloped potato and ground sausage casserole, although we weren't too hungry, so we only had a couple bites just to taste it.  There is plenty left to warm up for dinner tomorrow, and some lunches this week too.

We also had a tiny bit of this apple crisp:

I'm wiped, and ready for bed - have a great week everyone!

How was your weekend?  What did you do?  Do you make meals with the intention of having leftovers for lunches or dinner the next day?

That scalloped potato dish looks especially yummy. I love stick to your rib meals like that!! I always count on leftovers from meals to bring for lunches. Sometimes I make something on Sunday like a soup or chili that is primarily for leftovers so I have lunches for the week.

We had a fun weekend. We had a family wedding on Saturday. It was outdoors on a farm and it was a picture perfect weather day. It was so fun to connect with family! Then on Sunday we went to my brothers for a post wedding together. My brother served tacos and I made guacamole and salsa. It was delicious!! It was really fun to introduce Paul to lots of my family!
