Turkey Fajitas–Try A New Recipe Tuesday

Posted on

turkeyfajitamixWith hot summer weather and long days, my family enjoys lighter meals. Also being able to take advantage of the wonderful produce at the local farmer’s market, just makes food so much tastier. This dish has both of those qualities, but it was so quick and simple.


I started out with a bag of Butterball Turkey Medallions. I purchased these at Sam’s a few months back. These are already cooked and are simply heat and eat. turkeyfajita2

I added the fresh garlic, onion, and bell pepper I found at the farmer’s market to the skillet while heating the turkey. Within ten minutes, I had an entire meal prepared for the whole family.

I like to eat mine with corn tortillas–more authentic and lower in fat. My boys like flour ( they are bigger and hold more stuffing). They also add cheese.

For a finishing touch, I added fresh tomato.  Turkeyfajita

If you want a nice side dish, add a Spanish rice mix of your choice. Fresh fruit, like watermelon and cantaloupe are great finishers for this summer meal.

Clark Favorite Cheeseburger Macaroni–Try a New Recipe Tuesday

Posted on


I know I’m a bit late posting this, but it is summer. I’ve been trying to take some time to rest. Here’s another recipe my family can’t get enough of. When I cook this, I make a bunch. Prince Charming can down half the pan by himself.

Clark Favorite Cheeseburger Macaroni

  • 1 pound spiral, rigatoni, or shell pasta
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 2 or more fresh garlic cloves or garlic powder
  • 1/2 large onion or 1 whole small onion
  • Oregano, pepper and other seasonings
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese mix
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 can tomato soup or crushed tomatoes
  • 1 soup can water

Preheat over to 300 degrees. Boil pasta and cook until almost done. Brown ground beef and turkey together in the same pan with onion and garlic. Add oregano and other seasonings about halfway through cooking. Drain meat. Mix meat with soups and can of water and stir well. Add to pasta and mix gently so as not to tear pasta. Add 1/2 a cup of shredded cheese to mix and stir again until melted. Pour into large pan. Cover with remaining cheese. Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve hot.


If you notice my colorful noodles, I used spinach and tomato died pasta. Another sneaky way to get those veggies in my families diet. If you eat them cooked and plain, they do taste like tomatoes and spinach.

This is another great recipe to play around with. I like to add the turkey breast to cut the fat. If you want, you can use 2 pounds of ground turkey. Also, feel free to add any fresh seasonings you’d like. I’ve been know to toss in fresh basil, rosemary, or even a bay leaf or two–whatever I’m in the mood for. A touch of ground mustard is also a great seasoning choice.

I prefer the crushed tomatoes, but the kids like the tomato soup. To each his own. Guess who usually wins out around here?

Enjoy this meal.
