Rainy Day Tasks

So today is a cold rainy Sunday. I have so much to do outside but with a ruptured eardrum, 50 degrees and raining, I need to refocus.  First task was to blog at my www.statebystategradening.com blog. Please go check it out, it is about Lily-of-the Valley Project. 

I am going to try and get out to the Herb House and take the winter stored plants outside. Sometimes this is sucessful, but this year I am worried. I have not paid any attention to these "housed plants" so what will be will be...stay tuned.

My Office is in bad need of some love. I have books and papers all over....but wow my motivation is lacking today. So I choose to go a different direction and share a great culinary find!! (well at least to me it is)

We are trying hard to slim down.  This seems to be such an on going project, but as my 60th looms near I am more determined. So I have been trying to cook  more lean meats.

I purchased some turkey wings and legs yesterday at the store. Wow did I hit payday. I found the easiest way to cook them, keeping them low cal and delicious. I love darker turkey meat but hate taking things off the bone. It really bothers me.

So here is the easiest turkey wings and legs recipe ever.  We had great meat last night and today I made the best Turkey Salad.

Slow Cooker Turkey Legs

6 Turkey Legs ( I actually had 3 legs and 3 wings)
3 tablespoons poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
6  12 x 6 squares of alumium foil

1. Wash the turkey and shake off any excess mositure. Sprinkle each turkey piece with about 1/2 the poutry seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Wrap the piece tightly in foil. Repeat with all the remaining turkey pieces.

2. Placed the wrapped turkey pieces into a slow cooker with no other liquids. Set the cooker to low and cook until the meat is tender, about 7 to 8 hours.

Wow oh wow ..this meat was so moist and tender and fell off the bone.  Wonderful

So today, I just cut up the remaining meat. Added 1 yellow pepper and 1 green pepper cut up into pieces. Four stalks of celery diced, and mayo. Salt and pepper and then some fresh basil. It was so tasty.

So now I must go out to the Herb House and work or to the Office......having been inside writing all day, I elect to put on a warm sweatshirt and go outside!!
