I have a meal plan that I do periodically in my home.
First, I will give the meal plan and then I will give the recipes I've come up with. I don't give volumes because I cook to taste and some people like things spicier and others need a tamer meal. I also have no idea how much I put in once I tweak things. I start out with about 5 pounds of the sausage and 5 pounds of ground turkey used along the way but sometimes we don't make it all the way through the meal plan before we've finished with the leftovers.

meal plan.

Hot Italian (turkey) sausage sandwiches.
Spaghetti with hot Itallian (turkey) sausage
Chili
Baritoes or tacos
Chili on macaroni
plus one extra idea

First meal:
Hot Italian (turkey) sausage sandwiches

ingredients:

hot Itallian turkey sausage or hot sausage of choice.
cooking oil
cumin
hot pepper (seeds)
chili powder
salt and black pepper
tomato paste
water
fresh onion cut into long thin slivers
fresh sweet peppers cut into long medium slivers
sausage buns
provalone cheese


Cook the sausage in a deep pan with oil, salt and spices (to taste) until cooked through. Add onions and peppers and cook until soft. Avoid browning. Add tomato paste and twice as much water. Re flavor with salt and spices to taste. Cook to boil or when sauce is to desired thickness stirring to prevent burning or add to a slow cooker. Once cooked place on sausage bun and add provalone cheese.

second meal

left over sausage and sauce
spaghetti, or long pasta of choice
provalone cheese

slice sausage into round chunks and return to sauce.
Reheat sauce and cook pasta as directed on package. When pasta is drained add to plate with sauce and cheese.

meal three

Chili

ground turkey
cumin
hot pepper seeds
chili powder
black pepper and salt
left over sausage and sauce
salsa
1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
1 can of red kidney beans drained and rinsed
1 large can of stewed or flavored tomatoes of choice cut into smaller pieces
1 can of sliced olives (optional)
chocolate bar (can use two pieces for small batch to the full bar for a large volume)
sour cream (optional)
grated Colby or other desired cheese (optional)
tortia chips (optional)

Cook ground turkey with spices until browned and then salt and cook for a little more time to flavor the meat.
Add all the ingredients but last three into a large pot. Cook to thickness desired. Add optional ingredients as you will. A spoon full sour cream and a sprinkling of cheese will mellow a chili that has gotten too spicy and the chips add texture.

meal four

Tacos or burritos

left over chili
soft or hard tortia shells
grated cheese
chopped lettuce
chopped tomatoes
chopped onions
sliced black olives
sour cream
guacamole


Reheat chili. Add to hard or soft shells and add toppings of choice.

meal five

chili over macaroni

Reheat left over chili and place over cooked macaroni and add cheese of choice.

There is a 6th choice that I just thought of but I've never made. Add the chili over chicken thigh or breast for chicken con carne.

Maybe someone else could come up with some ideas for a meal plan that starts with some thing and can be expanded into others.
