Turkey & Potato Casserole

With some of the turkey breast I made this wonderful casserole that has now become my favorite! First I browned the cubed up turkey in a little oil with a little garlic and seasoning salt, I ran out of pepper corns or I would have added fresh ground pepper to it too! I then peeled and cubed up a few potatoes and set them to boil for about 15-20 minutes till tender but not mushy. In the pan I cooked the turkey I added a little oil and sautéed some sliced carrots with a little garlic powder and seasoning salt as well. Wow, so yummy, I am not one for cooked carrots (at least not boiled or baked anyways) but these were good! Sweet and delicious. I then sautéed a little chopped up broccoli. Mix it all in a large bowl, add an 8 oz tub of sour cream, 4 oz of softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese and a splash of milk. By the way have your oven preheated to 350 degrees F, place mixture in a casserole dish and bake uncovered for about 30-35 minutes. Serve with some fresh bread and a salad and you have a meal fit for a king!

Well tonight I was craving my jalapeno along with that I made some soft shelled burritos with ground beef, potatoes, green onions, chopped tomatoes, and peppers all in the mix. Served that up with a side of Spanish brown rice. Oh so good! Might have been a little spicy for the kids, next time I will probably forgo the chilli's in adobo sauce for them...

Use what is in the kitchen

Wasn't quite sure what to make for dinner tonight...had a small chicken, but that doesn't seem like enough to feed 9 people. Had a lot of end piece veggies so I am making chicken and rice soup from scratch. Mmm mmm good! Threw in some carrots, celery, couple of potatoes, an onion, cilantro, and the chicken. Smelling good already! That along with some wheat sourdough rolls...yummy!
