Tonight's Dinner: February 19, 2013

I ran to Sprouts after work to pick up some fresh supplies.  I'm getting really tired of having leftovers and frozen food.  I quickly marinaded a turkey breast in a miso sauce that I threw together with miso paste, chicken stock, red pepper flakes, and sesame seed oil.  While the turkey was marinating, I chopped up a head of cabbage and did a basic stirfry.  After the stirfry, I threw the turkey in the pan to sear on both sides. I added the extra marinade to the pan, but that was a mistake as it started to burn.  After searing on both sides, I lowered the heat and covered the pan and monitored the bird for the next 15 minutes.

I was hoping that all of that lovely goodness on the sides would be able to
be made into a gravy, but it burned before I could get to that step. This is
why I don't enter any of those cooking competitions.  My stuff burns way too

The turkey turned out really well and was very moist.

My new favorite thing is to put a high quality hot salsa on my salad instead
of salad dressing.  Although I really like the vinaigrette that I learned from Abby,
I love salsa.  With half an avocado added, it's like eating guacamole on your salad.

With the leftover turkey, I was able to make a delicious sandwich for lunch.
