Turkey Taco Salad

Turkey Taco Salad from That's My Home
Turkey Taco Salad

Turkey Taco Salad is made with ground turkey and cannelloni beans, topped with romaine, roasted corn, tomatoes, red onion and a spicy sour cream dressing. Everyone I know is on a diet and we had a party to go to the other day so I decided to see if I could make this salad a little healthier than it normally is. This one is loaded with fresh veggies and I served the chips on the side so it was up to you how much you used or didn’t use. I also a can of cannelloni beans to the turkey and love them in the mix. I forgot the fresh cilantro I had bought to go with the vegetables and remembered on the way to the party.

Beef Roll Ups

Beef Roll Up from Recipes Food and Cooking

Beef Roll Ups

This is a recipe my family has made forever. It is an easy to do recipe and can be done in the crock pot if you wanted also. I used a top sirloin steak today to make these but a round steak is a great cut for these, just increase the cooking time a little. The kids will love them because they are a finger food with the toothpicks in them to keep them round.

Tomato Poblano Soup

Tomato Poblano Soup Recipe

It’s that time of year again when I get out the soup pot and make soup again. I am one of those people that even when it’s hot outside I can eat a bowl of soup. I especially start to think about tomato soup at this time of year when you see all of the fresh tomatoes. Living in Florida it is just about time to be putting a garden in. It is too hot in the summer to have a garden, I tried herbs but they couldn’t survive without being watered multiple times a day and that was just too high maintenance for me. I did but 5 pots of herbs and they live out in the carport and they are doing well there.

I had about 6 bananas past the eating stage for me and just didn’t want banana bread again. Instead I made these delicious Banana Walnut Cookies I found in my recipe file on an old newspaper clipping. I love soft, cakey type cookies and these did not disappoint. I added my moms browned butter frosting and they were so delicious. These would be perfect for back to school lunches.

Beat the Heat! Chicken and Rice

Chicken and Rice from That's My Home

Chicken and Rice Recipe

Here’s another beat the heat recipe for you. Anytime I can not turn the oven on to cook dinner it is a win, win in this 90 degree heat we continue to have. Despite it all I am about to make it thru my first Florida summertime. Recipes like this one help. It is too hot to even want to barbecue! This dish is also economical because I used a package of chicken thighs that I got on sale.  You can have this on the table in about 45 minutes too!
