Turkey, Turnip and Potato Casserole

A hot dish using turnips, potatoes and turkey

First off – Happy Birthday to my husband!!!  He just turned the big 3 – 0 which means he has officially left his twenties behind (ha!)

I’m finally getting my engagement ring!  Keep in mind that I was married in May and he actually proposedlast October lol.  I wanted it custom designed to match the idea I had in my head though so I was willing to wait to get it exactly right.

  I think I finally succeeded at an Indian dish! Let me bask in this moment… Basking… Basking… Still basking… Yay again!

How refreshing – I didn’t have to come running home to throw something together so I could dive into studying as quickly as possible – yay! I think in a direct response to the lack of pressure I ended up making a meal that takes about an hour and a half from start to finish (although only about 20 minutes ... Read More »
