Yummy Turkey Lettuce Cups

My neighbor grew a ton of different kinds of peppers this year. Only one is hot and spicy  the Habenero. The rest have a great full flavor to them. So, I decided to use one, a purple pepper in my ground turkey mix up for dinner. I take scallions,garlic, carrots, celery, pepper(the purple one), baby bella mushrooms and sauté them then I put in a pound of ground turkey and brown it. I use turmeric, oregano, salt and pepper as spices. Then when the turkey is browned I put in a mixture of water, soy sauce and corn img_4058

Then you get your Bibb Lettuce…img_4059

And stuff them with the mixture…


It was delicious! But then leftovers! Woo Hoo! You get your pita and stuff it in there and tada!img_4066

oh I added a little ketchup! It was great too! Let me know what you think.

Quest for the Best – FAJITAS – La Hacienda

IMG_2869After the last Quest fail, I had to get back out there and try again. So, my neighbor, Will, told me about this pretty new mexican restaurant, La Hacienda, so, we went there today. Whew, it was very good! Attentive waiters, great decor, zippy service good overall experience. I do apologize for not taking more photos because the exterior is really tasteful and cute. 

IMG_2870Obviously, I ordered the fajitas, and this was a plateful with everything cooked (not just a garnish) The guacamole was great! Beans and rice very good. Chicken was really good. They have so many great looking entrees on their menu, I will happily return for more. 

IMG_2871Will got steak on skewers, it looked great. I am not sure why I didn’t try it. 

It was a very good experience and I will be back! If you have been let me know your thoughts.
