Turkey Two Ways & Bookmarks

Tonight is yet another night this week that I didn't go to the grocery store. Let's keep in mind that I have been needing to go since LAST Friday....whoops. So tonight was another clean out the fridge night. And when I say that, I really mean it:

I know, pathetic right?

We had some ground turkey flawing in the fridge that needed to be cooked tonight. The hubby wanted tacos. I wanted spaghetti. We both won!

Your stove has more than one burner! Split the package in half and make turkey two ways.

His had some garlic and cumin, black beans from the freezer, tomatoes and cheese. Mine had half a zucchini, some frozen red peppers, onion, garlic and some crushed tomatoes.

Add a little wine and call it a day:

Also, look what was waiting for me when I got home today:

Yeah buddy! A food scale! My mom got it for me :) I weighed my Cheerios just to test it out. Works great.

I also realized I have not shared any of my bookmarks with all of you lately, so here we go...
