Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We took the kids to a Spring Training Cubs Baseball Game this afternoon courtesy of my friend Catherine. She was so kind set this up for my family. The weather was great today, perfect for a game. For the most part the boys behaved themselves, once we got some traditional ballgame favorites: ice cream, snow cones and churros. Thanks again Catherine!
I made these fun wraps a few nights ago and they were a huge hit with the family. Probably took a whole 20 minutes from start to finish. This dish started when I picked up a bag of “Broccoli Slaw” at Super Target. It looked really good and I knew I wanted to use it in something. My husband is on a health kick, so thought a lettuce wrap would be a nice light, easy on the braces type of dinner. My 3 year old loved the lettuce aspect of it, but my pickier 5 year old preferred the turkey filling by itself in a bowl. However your family prefers, I am sure this will be a hit.
I’m off to catch up on some of the shows we’ve tivo’d during the week. I am so happy Top Chef and Bachelor are back, and I’m sure it’s the most exciting Bachelor ever, as Chris Harrison says EVERY season!!
If you can’t find this broccoli slaw, you can finely slice carrots, celery, zucchini, cabbage and broccoli to equal about 3 Cups. Any asian style veggis will do.
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 Cup finely chopped onion
1 lb ground turkey breast
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic salt (I used Lawry’s)
1 12 oz bag of Broccoli Slaw (found it at Super Target, saw it at Sprouts also)
1 small can drained water chestnuts
½ Cup Yoshida’s Teriyaki Sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Approximately 15 Butter Lettuce leaves (you can also use iceberg lettuce leaves)
1.Place oil into a large 5 qt skillet or other large pan over medium heat.When hot, add onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften.Add ground turkey, salt, pepper and garlic salt.Brown and crumble until cooked through.
2. When turkey is cooked, stir in broccoli slaw, water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce and sesame oil. Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until heated through. Reduce heat to low until ready to serve. Serve spoonfuls inside lettuce leaves. Enjoy!
