This evening's repast: bacon-wrapped turkey 
6th-Dec-2016 07:56 pm
Achaosofkittens filled the fridge for me this weekend. So tonight, I took over the kitchen like a slow-motion steamroller. This evening's repast was bacon-wrapped turkey breast, scalloped potatoes, stuffing (out of a box), and fresh tomatoes. (Those are tomatoes out of our garden that we picked green and let ripen on the counter. YUM.)

A phrase I often say is "Just because I don't play the game doesn't mean I don't know the rules." I believe that a similar phrase applies here: Just because I don't cook doesn't mean I don't know how to cook.

I won't claim that everything came out perfectly or even perfectly timed. But still, this is not my usual bowl of cereal. Lunch tomorrow will be epic.

It was, but a bit salty. I need to think about better sides to help contrast to the salty/sweet.

I think you may have discovered a way I could get K to eat turkey, there. Hmm.

What I didn't do, and you certainly should, was coat the turkey in herbed butter before putting on the bacon. One of the recipes called for garlic/dill and one called for rosemary/peppercorn.

Awesome bacon weave!!!

I almost always wrap my turkey in bacon. :) But I don't usually eat the bacon along with the turkey - the bacon usually gets repurposed elsewhere (sandwiches or quiche) or eaten on its own.

That looks amazing and the tomatoes look gorgeous!
