I love my Crock Pot and use it not only to save time in the colder months but also in the summer, especially on Sundays. I can prepare a meal before I leave for church and by the time I get home there’s nothing to do but relax until dinner is done.
Thanks to Jennie-O I was able to create a Slow Cooked Turkey Cacciatore that the entire family enjoyed.

Hello friends, I hope all is well is your world this wonderful Thanksgiving week. As most of you know, hubby is battling small intestinal cancer and has been undergoing chemo since June.
Today he is receiving treatment number 10 of 12, and it really wipes him out for the rest of the week, therefore, this year our Thanksgiving meal will be prepared for just he, our two sons and myself no other family members or friends.
Staying positive during this time and keeping the day stress free is the goal and thanks to my friends over at Jennie-O, it will be with this No Thaw ~ Oven Ready ~ From Freezer to Oven Whole Turkey with a Gravy Packet.
I am not unfamiliar with this Jennie-O Turkey as I prepared one last Thanksgiving, which you may remember I stated it was one of the best turkey dinners that I had made in recent memory.
In addition to having the turkey I will also be preparing kale and sweet potatoes which I received from The Help Ourselves Projectwhich is a non-profit organization currently involved in community-based initiatives ranging from food distribution to West African based out of Philadelphia, PA. Of course there will also be stuffing, hot rolls, shrimp and Marie Callender’s Deep Dish Apple Pie for dessert! The instructions for cooking a Jennie-O Whole Turkey is easy, breezy:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and remove turkey from outer bag, leaving it in the roasting bag
Cut 6 – 1/2 inch slits into the cooking bag, and pull up and away from turkey
Place in oven to roast until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees in the breast and 180 degrees in the thigh, there is also a Pop-Up Timer, but it take approximately 4 hours to cook
Let the turkey rest for 15 minutes then cut open roasting bag, be careful allowing the steam to escape
Prepare the gravy
No matter what brand or how you prepare your turkey, there will always be leftovers so if you need any ideas for your turkey leftovers, make sure to check out the www.jennieo.com website.
Disclosure: I received the Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey from Jennie-O, however, the opinions are 100% my own.
Tacos on Tuesday are hubby and my mini men’s favorite mid-week meal and it is made even more special with Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey. When you use Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey there is no need to add a separate package of Taco Seasoning which is a time and money saver.
This lean ground turkey is pre-seasoned with just the right amount of spice; tastes great and contains 70% less fat than regular ground beef which is why it’s has become a staple in my kitchen.
I always pour in a little Olive Oil before adding the Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey to a pre-heated pan then cook it until it’s no longer pink with an internal temperature of 165 degrees. I also use a wooden spatula to break up the ground turkey as it cooks.
Once done, we put a few scoops of it into a Taco Boat then top it with diced onions, fresh cherry tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and diced avocados. I also like to sprinkle mine with a little hot sauce because you know I like it spicy!
You can add extras like shredded lettuce, sour cream or even diced jalapeno peppers and wrap in a tortilla, or add to a hard Taco shell, but we like these Taco boats better.
Happy Labor Day 2014, the unofficial end of the summer (BOO!!!). I can’t remember a summer flying by as fast as this one did, how about you?
So what are your plans for the grill today? It’s going to be a gorgeous day here in Delaware so I’ll be outside cooking later this afternoon. However, if you are staying indoors but still want grilled hot dogs you might want to try this tasty recipe.
I used Jennie-Oturkey products because we don’t eat pork and not a lot of beef. I wrapped a slice of turkey bacon around each hot dog then secured them with two toothpicks.
Pour a little olive oil in the skillet and allow the bacon wrapped dogs to cook for approximately 15 minutes, turning to keep them from burning.
Once the bacon is crispy, add chopped onions and peppers, turn heat on low allowing the peppers and onions to soften for a few minutes longer.
Remove toothpicks and turn hot dogs to ensure they are thoroughly cooked. In the meantime, toast your bun.
“Dress your bun” with your choice of condiments add chips or fries and enjoy!
What is your favorite way to cook hot dogs?
