How many meals can you make in an hour?

Yep, I think this was the game show I was thrown into tonight... Didn't plan dinner well because I wasn't sure if I would need to stay late at work or not. Well, I ended up warming chicken, carrots & corn for the baby, & peeling him a pear... at the same time I was making my hubby Buffalo Chicken Fries & mushroom "salad" (cold with oil & vinegar)... & a "Turkeyloaf" with rice & sauteed veggies for me... I am beat.

The best part about a blog, for me, is writing everything down, including recipes. The worst part? Most things I cook, do not have a recipe, they are from my head! I looked in the refrigerator for the "ingredients" for my turkeyloaf... Approximate measurements:


1 lb. ground turkey
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian style)
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
handful of fresh basil chiffonade
generous handful of fresh baby spinach
a couple of dashes extra virgin olive oil
S & P
Preheat oven to 375°. 

Mix together all of the ingredients with your hands. Form into a "loaf" shape (rectangular) & place into an oiled loaf pan.  My newest favorite, inexpensive kitchen dish is the Pyrex glass loaf dish with a red cover (for storage).  Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese for a nice crust. Bake for 45-50 minutes.

I have to say it smelled so good my husband thought I was baking a cake ;) & it tasted delish too.
