|Wild Turkey-Pineapple Mish Mash|
|Get ALL that white stuff off? I tried!!|
With no raw chicken on hand, I thawed out some wild turkey breast. I'd incorporated leftover cooked wild turkey strips into many a meal, but Hubby's the wild game cook in this house. I'd never worked with the raw meat myself.
The wild turkey was covered on both sides with a filmy, sometimes thick membrane and sprinkled with what looked like little black hairs and a few blobs of yellow fat. Well, GROSS! But I braved it and eventually cleaned it to my satisfaction. Once cut it into chunks, it cooked up just like chicken!
|See, don't you think it looks like chicken?|
My Turkey Pineapple Mish Mash turned out quite well, despite my fiddling with the original recipe, so thanks, Yummy, for the inspiration!
one Bittman credits to Food Network. Not my cheat day, so Hubby had to be the judge of this first one. He liked it, hey, Mikey!
The hard part of committing to trying something new each day might just be the frustration of failing at something new on a regular basis! But hey, I survived my first failed attempt at making homemade noodles. And my thick, ugly noodles still might taste good once they're dried and ready to cook...one can hope.
Despite the head-banging over the noodles, I'm getting a kick out of this challenge. Thanks, Bruise Mouse, I look forward to seeing what you choose to do for your 30 days! And LOVE the comments, you guys, helps to get me off my tuchus and into the kitchen to try something new! Kitchen's first...WORLD'S NEXT!
|These noodles are supposed to be long...but once I'd rolled them up to cut, they wouldn't UN-roll!|
