Each week, I try to make a variety of foods. We have our themed nights: Crockpot/Quick Meal Monday, Taco Tuesday, Soup Night Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, All American Friday (Pizza or Burgers), and then Sundays which I reserve for meals that may take some time that I don't have throughout the week. I often forget to make an Asian-style dish and it drives me banana sandwich because I love Asian foods. It actually may be a good thing that we don't have them as often because I have NO self-control at all with it. This recipe included.

I always go into recipes without expecting much - I mentioned this recently...I know I have. I don't expect them to be bad, but I don't expect them to be super amazing either. I just don't have expectations at all. I do hope they are delicious, amazing, unforgettable...I absolutely do. So I get really excited when they ARE super amazing, delicious, and unforgettable. I loved how flavorful the ground turkey was and thoroughly enjoyed the crunch of the green beans with. It was perfect over a bed of rice and I will have to double the recipe next time because it disappeared very quickly!
