Turkey Turkey Turkey Turkey

When deciding what I am going to cook for dinner, I try stick to the four main food groups: turkey chili, turkey meatballs, turkey lettuce wraps and syrup.

But seriously, if you couldn’t tell, I love me some ground turkey.  You can do jusssttt about anything with it. There are so many great recipes to choose from. The other night I made some turkey lettuce wraps and they were deeeelicious. And healthy. Win/win.
