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.

Greens for the New Year

In the south we eat Collard Greens and Black eyed peas for good luck and prosperity in the new year. On New Years Day the number of peas you eat will be the number of days that will be lucky in the new year.

I love spicy greens!Greens 3You cover the greens with water and cook for about 45 minutes, then drain. Next take 4 tablespoons of butter in a small pan and add a medium onion chopped and add in 3 tablespoons of Chile de Arbol ground. Greens 2Pour the butter onion and chile mixture over the greens and add 4 cups of chicken broth and ta da! Yummy Spicy Greens!Greens 1Oh whoops add a can of green chilies with tomatoes.

Good Eats!

Cheeseburger – The Rusty Nail

IMG_4460Now, granted it is a dive, but doesn’t that usually give us the greatest surprises? IMG_4461I have to honestly say everything I have ever tried here has been very good and no I have not tried the lasagna yet. Their wings are awesome, but I came for the cheeseburger. Cheeseburger 8I am not sure what the gold record is for, I will check it out next time. Cheeseburger 3The bun is toasted perfectly. The burger was cooked perfectly and it was delicious.

Cheeseburger 2The Rusty Nail is located on Buford Highway, near North Druid Hills. (The fries were great too!)

Yummy Nachos

Nachos 3I started out with some diced onions in some ground beef and I used a poblano pepper too, browned the ground beef, added in some Herdez salsa, collards 9 And then I added in Ducal refried beans. Place some Xochil tortilla chips on the cookie sheet and I am usually meticulous about spreading the meat mixture on each chip, this time, I just placed it all over. Then the cheese, I had a shredded quesadilla cheese but you can use just about anything. Throw it into the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Now, here’s what does it, chop up fresh tomatoes, an avocado some lettuce and some jalapeños but then a drizzle of jalapeño ranch dressing and a drizzle of the salsa – Heaven!Nachos 1
