No, I haven’t stopped cooking. in fact, I’m probably cooking more than ever. It’s just that I haven’t been making the time to 1) take pictures, and 2) actually sit down and write here.

I’ve been pretty busy updating websites, lately. After finally learning the basics of CSS, I’m redoing a whole slew of sites. It keeps me off the streets.

So… yesterday during my weekly shopping excursion, I picked up a turkey breast. It’s called a “hotel” breast, because it just has the top part of the carcass – breast and wings – and all bone-in. I put it on the grill.

I heated the grill, and then turned off the center heat. After wrapping the bird in bacon I placed it in the center, turned down the other two knobs, closed the lid, and walked away. About three hours later, we had a GREAT bird!

I was craving a good ol’ turkey sandwich, so…

  • Whole wheat bread slathered in mayonnaise…
  • Sliced heirloom tomatoes
  • Sliced avocado
  • the aforementioned bacon

What a taste treat!

I served them with a manchego and apple salad I found in Bon Appetit a while back:

  • 1 chopped apple
  • 1 cup cubed manchego cheese
  • 1/2 cup marcona almonds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Dinner was yummy – and now I have all sorts of turkey to play with!

Tonight… salads…
