My kitchen light went out. On a weekend. And not just went out, but broke in the socket. And of course, I couldn't figure out what breaker to flip to go up and get the light bulb. So instead of electrocuting myself and hoping I didn't come crashing down the 8 foot ladder onto my small child, I simply lived with a dark kitchen until Monday when a friend could come over and help. Of course payment is needed, so I made dinner. I had some turkey breast in the freezer and some fresh noodles from the farmers market in the fridge (the name is about 28 syllables long so I won't even attempt to say let alone spell it). So turkey, noodles, and pan sauce it was...... The pan sauce turned out pretty well. The noodles got sauteed in butter and a little balsamic vinegar and were excellent. I hesitate to describe the noodles too much because this isn't an X-rated blog....... So suffice to say they are potato based, about 3 inches long, and have a rather cylindrical shape. I'll let you extrapolate the details...... In all, the meal was pretty good. No veggies, which is probsbly not a good habit to get in since I'm trying to raise Charlotte in a healthy way, but my male, beer-drinking, carnivorous friend didn't seem to mind. Especially since I didn't make any soggy fried food this time.
Pan-fried Turkey Breast with Mustard Pan Sauce
2 Turkey breasts, pounded flat (about 3cm thick)
1/2C Flour (for dredging the turkey breasts in)
Oil for cooking
Flour for the roux
I'll put the recipe in later, Charlotte is trying to turn the stove on again......
