Bruschetta Turkey

5 Dec

Sorry for the lack of posting this weekend.  We have been busy and haven’t been home much.  We spent yesterday with great friends in the cold cheering on the ACC Champion Virginia Tech Hokies.  I can’t wait to share my favorite tailgate recipes later this week.  Today was spent cleaning up the house, finishing my last homework assignment for grad school, and working on some non-profit letters.

Our final turkey dinner from last week was a quick and easy dish inspired from a Kraft recipe.  I came home and looked through the cabinets and decided to make a version of this Kraft Bruschetta Chicken Bake recipe.  We didn’t have any chicken but I found a frozen turkey breast tenderloin to use instead.  I added extra seasoning and less cheese.  It turned out great.  I served it with a simple spinach caesar salad (spinach, pinch of cheese, a few croutons, and a dash of lite caesar).  It was nice to have such an easy recipe to come home and make when I had so much to get done after work.


Turkey Bruschetta

Just a few ingredients needed.


Prepare your turkey and stuffing mix.




Add cheese and bake.

After 30 minutes, the cheese should be gooey and the stuffing nice and brown!

Serve with a caesar salad and enjoy!

Black Friday Traveling

26 Nov

Most people were up bright and early today to go shopping.  We were on the road at 6:30am to drive to Pennsylvania.  I am writing this post from the car as we drive through West Virginia.  Black Friday will always be a special day to me.  2 years ago I said “Yes” and got engaged!  It was a fantastic day.  We were at my parents in PA and got engaged that morning.  I was able to see my family and my grandparents and share the exciting news.   We then got in the car and drove to Cincinnati to celebrate with Tony’s family.  We got to see his family and extended family that weekend.  It was great being able to share such a special day with all of the ones we love!


Back to Thanksgiving….

I spent the afternoon cooking mashed potatoes, green beans, and Brussels sprouts.


With our side dishes in tow, we drove 15 minutes to Tony’s parents for dinner!  We had so many options.  Everything was delicious!


There was Turkey and Stuffing,

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as much as we did.

It’s time for a Starbucks stop in West Virginia.  We are getting closer to my family, mile by mile!

What do you do with your Thanksgiving leftovers?

I like to make turkey quesadillas.
