BUFFALO TURKEY-BREAST ROAST


Olive oil spray
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds trimmed boneless, skinless turkey breast roast (I used Jennie-O turkey filet or something like that and there was 2 pieces in mine - it looks like a pork tenderloin)
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce (look for a thick, all-natural sauce and I used 2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup water

Preheat the over to 350 degrees. Lightly mist an 8" X 8" glass baking dish or nonstick baking pan with the olive oil spray.

In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place the roast on a cutting board. With a fork, pierce each side (top and bottom) deeply about 25 times. Drizzle on the oil and rub to coat evenly on both sides. Sprinkle with the garlic powder mixture and rub it in to evenly coat both sides.

With the smooth side of the breast down, drizzle with half of the wing sauce, rubbing to coat. Place the turkey, smooth side up, in the prepared pan. Rub the buffalo sauce over the smooth side of the breast. Pour the water into the pan, taking care not to pour it over the turkey.

Roast for 35 to 40 minutes (mine took longer), or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 160 degrees and the juices run clear. Tent the roast loosely with foil and let stand for 10 minutes (the temperature should increase to 170 degrees). Place the turkey on a clean cutting board and carve against the grain into thin slices. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight plastic container for up to 3 days.

Not a real recipe but a suggestion for a meal. I buy the No Name Steaks in the petite size, have a small baked potato (with a touch of butter and sour cream), a small salad with lo cal dressing and a glass of skim milk. The petite size ( 4 oz) are perfect for us.

This is my favorite little go to meal. I eat it at least once a week. Lately, I have thrown Corn in it too. I kept meaning to add it in over here:

*insert meat of choice* Ranchero
Serves one

3-4 oz of your favorite meat (beef shrimp chicken)
1/4 medium onion chopped
1-3 cloves of garlic
1 Bell Pepper chopped
1 hot Pepper (as hot as you like)chopped
1 Medium Tomato chopped
1/2 T Olive Oil

Directions for Beef and Chicken:
Fry up the peppers, onions, Garlic, and Meat in the Olive Oil. Then add the tomato, cook until saucy. You may need to add 1/2 t of honey to this to cut the acidness of the tomato. Serve with 1/2 cup Black Beans. Yummy!

Directions for Shrimp:
Fry up the peppers, onions, and garlic in the Olive Oil. Then add the tomato, cook until saucy. You may need to add 1/2 t of honey to this to cut the acidness of the tomato. When the sauce has had a chance to get saucy, add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp turn white. Serve with 1/2 cup Black Beans.

Easy simple and good flavor!

We had fresh caught walleye for supper. My husband got his deep fried and I got mine broiled and steamed mixed veggies on the side. WOW! Nothing better.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

I love going through recipes on the Food Network and Spark. I'm always looking for recipes low in calories and sodium. One of my favorites is turkey sloppy joes with black beans served with baked veggies. It is really good.

I LOVE to cook. One of my favorites is chicken picatta. Below is the recipe.

Ingredients
4 split (2 whole) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 C. All-purpose flour
2 extra-large eggs
1 ½ C. Seasoned dried bread crumbs
Good olive oil
3 tbl unsalted butter at room temperature.
1/3 c freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons), lemon halves reserved
½ c. dry white wine
Sliced lemon, for serving
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, for serving

Directions:
1.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Place each chicken breast between 2 sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap and pound it out to ¼- inch thick.  Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
2.Mix the flour, 1 tsp salt, and ½ tsp of pepper on a shallow plate.  In a second plate, beat the eggs and 1 tbl water together.  Place the breadcrumbs on a third plate.  Dip each chicken breast first in the flour, shake off the excess, and then dip in the egg and bread-crumb mixtures.
3.Heat 2 tbl olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium to medium-low heat.  Add 2 chicken breasts and cook for 2 minutes on each side, until browned.  Place them on the sheet pan while you cook the rest of the chicken.  Heat more olive oil in the sauté pan and cook the second 2 chicken breasts.  Place them on the same sheet pan and allow them to bake for 5 to 10 minutes while you make the sauce.
4.For the sauce, wipe out the sauté pan with a dry paper towel.  On medium heat, melt 1 tbl of the butter and then add the lemon juice, white wine, the reserved lemon halves, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.  Boil over high heat until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.  Off the heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and swirl to combine.  Discard the lemon halves.  Serve one chicken breast on each plate, spoon on the sauce, and serve with sliced lemon and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

I use to have a really easy recipe for enchiladas. It was some cooked chicken, with salsa, and cheese. Mix together and put a couple spoonfuls in a tortilla, roll and bake. I don't remember any of the other stuff. It was in a cookbook the my belonged to my ex. but it was easy!
