First of all the “Crack Slaw”. It really is THAT GOOD! I got this recipe from a fellow Foodie (thanks Kristen!!) and I tried it for the first time tonight. I LOVED it! The hubby turned his nose at it a bit because of the ground turkey (he has an aversion to healthy meats) but he ate it! This will definitely go in my “Cook Again” file.
The recipe does come from All Recipes. I did tweak it a bit for what I had on hand though. The original recipe is http://allrecipes.com/recipe/253157/weeknight-crack-slaw/
First of all I LOVE the colors! Fresh is always the BEST!
The finished product! YUMMY!
Weeknight Crack Slaw:

- 1 T Sesame Seeds
- Mix Hot Sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and agave syrup together in a small bowl to make sauce.
- Heat Olive Oil and Sesame Oil in wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add ground turkey;cook , stirring to break up clumps, until juices run clear, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl, reserving juices in the skillet/wok.

Now to one of our fave meals! For years, the local High School comes around Thanksgiving and Easter selling Boston Butts for a fundraiser. Now that my daughter plays ball, she now has to sell them as well. Let’s just say…we have a few in our freezer. I heated up one in the crock pot earlier this week on a ball night and had lots of leftovers so tonight I made Fried BBQ Wonton Wrappers with the remains. This has become our favorite way to eat BBQ in our house! The recipe is SIMPLE:
- Leftover (or not leftover is you’re not making this from leftovers) BBQ Pork or Chicken. (You could even buy the BBQ chicken/pork from the store). Chop it fine.
- Won ton Wrappers. You find these in the refrigerated section in the produce.
- Oil for Frying
- BBQ Sauce. Bottled is fine; I always add vinegar to bottled BBQ sauce..it’s just my thing!
- Take a warm spoonful of BBQ, place in won ton wrapper and fold.
- When all are prepared, drop wrappers in frying oil and fry until crispy (just a few minutes)
- Serve with warm BBQ sauce and INHALE! They are THAT GOOD!
