82. slow-cooked turkey dinner

Recipe source: Fix-it and Forget-it Recipes for Entertaining by Pellman Good and Ranck

Ho-hum. Meat, vegetables and cream of mushroom soup.

And I know the title of the recipe says “turkey,” but the grocery store didn’t have any boneless, skinless turkey thighs, so I used chicken instead.

On the plus side, the onion and carrots were from BP’s garden.

79. zucchini and turkey dish

Recipe source: Fix-It and Forget-It Recipes for Entertaining by Phyllis Pellman Good and Dawn J. Ranck

Summer garden produce is starting to explode from our garden, and so I’m on the lookout for garden-veggie-heavy recipes. I also was looking for something easy I could put in the crockpot.

This was good, though not fantastic. BP had two helpings, and I thought the leftovers were better than the original.


zucchini and turkey dish


3 c. zucchini, sliced

1 small onion, chopped

1/4 tsp. salt

1 c. cubed cooked turkey

2 fresh tomatoes, sliced

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. dried basil

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 c. shredded Provolone cheese

3/4 c. Pepperidge Farms stuffing

Combine zucchini, onion, salt, turkey, tomatoes, oregano and basil in slow cooker. Mix well.

Top with cheeses and stuffing.

Cover. Cook on low 8-9 hours. (When I went home and lunch and checked it, I turned it to the warm setting for the rest of the day. I felt like it was plenty done in 4 hours.)

62. turkey sloppy joes

Delicious! Goodbye forever, Manwich.

These joes were fresh, with the use of fresh cut veggies, and spicy. If you’re not a fan of spicy food, I’d recommend you cut out the cayenne pepper altogether. There’s some definite heat to these joeys.

These are going straight into my “make again” file.

47. gyro-style turkey pitas

leave a comment »

Recipe source: Simple & Delicious, March/April 2010

Little Brother and I gave this a thumbs-up. BP gave it a thumbs-down.

I thought it was a good lunch – fresh, light, tasty. BP just didn’t really care for it.

The meat filling was ground turkey, onion, sauerkraut and a little bit of brown sugar and salt. The sauce consisted of sour cream, mayo, a little bit of ranch dressing, and some chopped tomato and cucumber.

46. grilled turkey reubens

leave a comment »

Recipe source:

BP claims this sandwich is in his Top 10 list. He loves them and told me that I need to make them “all the time.”

These reubens are a nice twist on the classic sandwich. Instead of thousand island dressing, these have mayo and hot wing sauce. Delicious and perfect for a quick lunch on the weekend, or any day of the week, really.
