Four Foods on Friday #55

Man, I am so tired. Next week is Scholastic Book Fair week at the elementary school, and my friend Kim and I spent yesterday and today getting it set up, previewing the books for students, holding a staff preview and lots of odds and ends stuff. I was at the school from 8:45 this morning until 6:00 tonight. It's like going to work, but I don't get paid! But it's fun, even if it's tiring and a lot of work, and the kids at the school get so excited.

The Fall book fair is my big thing during the school year, and once it's done, it's only a few days until Thanksgiving. Which is a long-winded way of getting to the Four Foods on Friday for this week, since it's all about the turkey holiday.

#1. Stuffing. Boxed or from scratch?

From scratch, definitely. My mother-in-law makes a stuffing with fresh sausage that is TO DIE FOR.

#2. If you were served the perfect Thanksgiving dinner what would it be?

I have it served every year! Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, peas, mashed potatoes, rolls - I even like the rutabega! I guess the only thing I would add would be my friend Kelli's amazing sweet potato casserole.

#3. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving leftover?

The day-after sandwich: turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce on Martin's whole wheat potato bread. I only have it after Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I really look forward to it.

#4. Share a recipe using turkey.

Turkey Black Bean Wraps


1-1/2 cup thick and chunky salsa
3 cups shredded turkey Breast, thawed if frozen
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon lime juice
¼ to ½ teaspoons ground cumin
8 flour tortillas (8 to 10 inches in diameter), warmed
1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Mix salsa, turkey, beans, lime juice and cumin in saucepan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through.

Spread turkey mixture on tortillas. Top with cheese, roll up.
