Lunch Time!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I go through phases where I buy lunch a lot at work and when I’m good at planning ahead and bringing my lunch. I’m on a phase of bringing my lunch right now. The thing for me about packing a lunch is that is still needs to be fresh an interesting and delicious. Last night I picked up some groceries to help the attempt at saving money and being slightly healthier.
Today’s (and the rest of the weeks) menu is a turkey sandwich. I know it sounds boring, but it’s not! I used a cheddar foccacia bread with smoked turkey and smoked Gouda cheese, a chipotle Dijon mayo, tomato and drag cilantro.

Yummmmmmmmmm!!

Stuffed Mushrooms

This is a recipe that I came up with that is delicious and pretty healthy, too!

Portabello Mushrooms

1 pound ground turkey

1 pound spinach

1 cup red wine

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/2 TBS fresh rosemary

Preheat the oven to 350.  Gently wipe the tops of the mushrooms with a wet paper towel or clothe to clean.  Scrape the gills out with a spoon.

Brown the ground turkey in the skillet.  Add the red wine and continue to simmer.  Add the spinach and let it wilt down.  Add the breadcrumbs to the pan and stir until combined.  Sprinkle in the rosemary and cook for a minute or so.  Spoon the filling into the mushroom caps and bake for about 10-12 minutes.

* It’s also delicious to add a bit of cheese into the mix.  The first time I made it I used a sharp English cheddar and it was really tasty!

I wish the pictures did the flavor more justice!
