Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 5

Recipe 2
Smoky Turkey Shepherd's Pie
Matt rating ***1/2

Ingredients used:

Course salt
Idaho potatoes
Ground turkey
Smoked paprika
Course black pepper
Thyme leaves
Red bell pepper
Frozen peas
Chicken stock
Sour cream
Unsalted butter
Chives (fresh from my garden!)

This is definitely a comfort food recipe, but one you can feel good about eating. Turkey and lots of veggies, but some bacon to add some flavor. It was a pretty easy meal to make, but lots of chopping of veggies involved which took the most time. It took me about 45 minutes to complete this meal, but it was worth the time involved. Matt gave it three and a half stars and said that he would eat it again...he's not big into veggies. I would have given it four stars myself. There was so much flavor in this recipe that you couldn't even tell that it was ground turkey that was used. Since there are only two of us, I could have frozen half of the dish for later use, but I'll just have leftovers tomorrow. I thought it was so good that I had two helpings!

I'll be taking tomorrow night off as we are having dinner over at a friend's house, so you will see my next installment on Sunday. Have a great weekend everybody!
