Crockpot Turkey ~ Football Sunday !

Good 32º foggy morning. May rain...

We did get some sun yesterday, but it stayed about 48º. We had a nice sunset....

My pal Nancy came by with a bottle of wine (!) in the late afternoon and we sat and had a good visit. Always too long in between! (Nancy, see if you can send me that picture you took of Harley and I.)

Dinner was an experiment. I thawed some ground turkey and with olive oil browned it.. along with a big chopped onion, about 4 cloves of sliced garlic, and reconstituted dried mushrooms and a liberal amount of Simply Asia spices. Then I added Panko bread crumbs and a can of Rotel tomatoes, and some hoisin sauce. I cut up 3 big carrots. I put the turkey mixture in the crockpot on low for 4 hours and then topped it with the carrots.

After the 4 hours I shredded up the head of cabbage and put that on top of the carrots, drizzled on some sesame oil and some soy sauce and let it cook for another hour.....

It was very good. Light. Like stuffed cabbage rolls without the roll! GOOD!


(Thanks Deewayne-Honey Preimsberger for this .....)

I looked like an idiot getting on the bus this morning.
