The Grand Caper….

Last night, my mom and I made plans for a girl’s night. 
She was coming over, and I was all geared up to make Turkey Burgers and roasted Red Kuri Squash Fries. The meat was even thawing on the counter. 
Then, in our typical fashion, plans changed. 
We went on a grand caper the likes of which would only happen to us. I can’t really go into detail due to privacy concerns. Just imagine 2 little white women in a sketchy area of town, a bingo hall, 2 bouncers, and a broken GPS.
It was “AWESOME”!
By the time we were safe and sound back on our side of town it was late and food was an immediate necessity. 
Thank goodness for this little pizza place! They have an amazingly safe restaurant with Gluten-Free, Vegan Pizza, breadsticks, salads, etc…. They use Daiya Cheese & buy their crusts from Ivan over at Viitals. Ivan trained the entire staff on how to avoid cross contamination. Their kitchen is so safe it’s almost ridiculous!  
But I digress….
We each ordered a half salad and split a delicious pizza topped w/ Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Spinach, and Red Cabbage. It was perfection! Then we headed back to my place to chat. All in all it was a lovely evening!
However, we returned home to find thawed turkey on the counter. It needed to be cooked… TODAY! Not wanting to go to the grocery store after church tonight, I whipped this together with whatever I had on hand. Feel free to add whatever veggies you have that need to be used. Bon Appetit!

  1. I tend to miss these sorts of activities. Your outing with your mother was totally reminiscent of a jaunt Tina and her mother took took in NYC once. Lets just say we were lucky they lived to tell the story. The picture of the two of you is great!

  2. Well last night had a similar experience with my friend Lizzy. Same Bingo hall but this time we had to visit the sister Bingo hall to retrieve help for the father hall. Then back to scary Father Hall. Needless to say Lizzy stated"As soon as I turn 18 this is where I'm coming." HAHAHAHA

  3. You and your Mom have interesting tastes in entertainment…Awesome! It's nice to live on the wild side and feel alive. Bingo hall, bouncers and a broken gps, must have been quite the story. Thanks for linking up your Creamy Turkey and Kale Skillet.
