Thoughts around the Meal Plan

Thai Chicken Fettuccine Heather made this for her Dad and I and it was delicious. I'm going to use almond butter instead of peanut butter and add some Indian tomato pickle to give it a bit of a kick.

The tomato pickle is something a friend of mine introduced me to about 7 years ago... awesome on your Ramen Noodles. I Finally found it at the Indian Store just south of the 7-Eleven on the corner of 35th and Redwood. Nice Store!!

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas
, (Trish's version) I really liked the Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas that Trish made for a family dinner not long ago. I went searching for the recipe and found Phe/MOM/enom's version. It has heavy cream in it, though so I'm gonna ask Trish for the recipe she uses. (Recipe link inserted) Trish uses 1-29oz can or 3-10 oz of the green chili enchilada sauce. Sounds like there are UBER numbers of variations. I'm gonna check out Phe/MOM/enom's blog a little more when I have time.

This Jicama and Black Bean Salad looks to go well with the enchiladas, and would also be good as topping on the lunch salad.

Indian Lentil Soup I tried a soup at Sweet Tomatoes this last week and it was heavenly, so I went looking for a recipe for Indian Lentil Soup. This looks like it's close. Can't wait to try it!

Spiced Turkey Burgers with Yogurt and Chutney, Brown Rice, Cauliflower with Tomato Curry Sauce Trish made this awhile back. We loved the Turkey Burgers, but I've only used Ground Turkey Breast, because I am a bit tentative about Turkey Burger. I'm going to try using the 93/7 that Trish recommends. I can't justify the cost of the ground turkey breast on a regular basis and we really like these. This time we are going to try the cauliflower with tomato curry sauce too!

~Wait. In my mind turkey burger and ground turkey breast are the same thing. But since the fat content comes in varying degrees I guess you are right that they are not.
At any rate, I use the 93/7 ground turkey breast. I do sometimes use the 85/15 which obviously must have something more than breast meat in it. We like it too. But I prefer the 93/7.
~Ooooh!!! I have a bag of red lentils that I have been looking for a recipe for. I might copy you next week. Tell me how it turns out! Pretty please.

I'll have to check again. I saw some 93/7 right next to the Ground Turkey Breast, and maybe it's just a racket, they sure charge a hefty price.
One way or the other on the Indian Lentil soup, I'll let you know. Dennis thinks it would be good with chicken in it.

The big plunge...
