Laney Honey ~ TurkeyBroccoliGnocchi Casserole ~ Julie's Mushroom Oil ~ Roof Over Your Head Day


Good 45º foggy drizzly morning. Got rain starting yesterday afternoon through the night. Not a lot... only about 1/8"...   very unlike the deluge they got in California!
 
Here is a favorite snack of mine with coffee... a rice cake, slathered with peanut butter, and Laney Blueberry Blossom honey! (www.laneyhoney.com )

 
 
A "Cooperism" from my friend Vivia back in NY...
 I went to a seafood disco last week and pulled a muscle. 
(Jennifer Murphy.. is this what you did, you went to a seafood disco????)

Yesterday I made the 'concoction' I was talking about...
First I cooked some broccoli in a bit of water with garlic salt..



Then I cooked the gnocchi in the same water using a little more garlic salt. Cook til they float.

Drain both.

Next, in the same pan I emptied out the water and added in some olive oil and cooked some mushrooms whole until they were well browned.

First in the casserole was the broccoli, then the gnocchi..

Next in was cut up turkey and add the mushrooms.

All of that drizzled well with Julie's Mushroom Olive Oil..

Then I heated the turkey gravy and poured that over all. Adding a topping of Parmesan cheese...

Next Mozzarella cheese....

Lastly a Mexican cheese blend....

Cooked slow at 275º for a couple hours. PERFECT!

OMGOOOOOOD!!!! Best casserole ever!

An interesting blog about being thankful..



Today is  National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads.
For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street...... literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe.
Spend a few minutes  being thankful that you are not homeless, and appreciating your roof and home today. Also make a contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the rain.
Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!
