Our menu for the week looked something like this:
Roasted Turkey Breast
Spice Rubbed Salmon
Stacked Turkey Enchiladas
BBQ Turkey Pizza
There is it, my menu plan for the week and I had a grocery list to accompany it. The only thing worse than not having a grocery list is having a list and getting to the store only to realize that they don't have what you need! Uuuggg! Soooo frustrating. You can see that my menu was centered around the fact that I was going to roast a turkey breast on Monday and use the meat for the rest of the week but when my supermarket had zero turkey breasts, so I had to make a quick change of plans. The supermarket did have whole chickens on sale so I decided to swap my turkey for chicken and just go with it.
I brought my chicken home and did a quick pinterest search to find a great roasted chicken recipe. Honestcooking.com to the rescue. They had this amazing spice rubbed chicken on their website that made me forget all about my plans to make a turkey.
