Random Photos!

Its time for the monthly random photo post!  This month's theme is flowers.  I know I did that not too long ago, but these are different flowers.

...And my other photo post that is ready to go can't be posted yet because it will unveil what will be in my re-done etsy store if I ever get it up and running.

I'd also like to throw a thank you out there to SOYJOY.  I'd won a prize package from them and it came yesterday, very nicely put together, and even with a few things inside that I hadn't been expecting, as well as  thank you note that was in the cutest little envelope.  Its so nice (and unusual these days) to see a company so grateful and generous an it was much appreciated!  Also, they sent me some of the Strawberry bars in there and they are so good...I can see myself snacking on those long into the future.

Done rambling, enjoy the pictures!  :)

These honeysuckle are STILL blooming and they smell amazing.

Wisteria...One of the most beautiful things in the world.

*All pictures taken by yours truly, feel free to use them, just don't claim that they are yours or remove the watermark if it has one and please show some love by linking back.  :)

The holidays aren't the only time of year to eat turkey.  In fact, we probably eat turkey more when its not a holiday.  This turkey breast I caught on sale and only needed half of it for the recipe I was making for dinner that night, so I decided to just bake the rest up for sandwiches or snacks.

This, admittedly, looks pretty gross.  But do not fret!  The turkey breast was pretty massive and came boneless, skin on.  I peeled the skin off the whole thing, cut it in half, and diced up the half I was going to cook for dinner that night.  The other half, I left in one big hunk, rubbed about 1/4 each of spicy mustard and honey (the real stuff only),  sort of wrapped it back into the piece of skin, then popped it into the toaster oven at 350 for about an hour and I had this:

It was simple, moist, and made one hell of a sandwich and wrap.

As with all poultry, once you take it out of the oven let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before you slice it up so it will reserve its juiciness.  :)
