Shaker Style Turkey Cutlets with Croquette Potatoes, Roasted Spaghetti Squash, and Sauteed Green Beans

So I worked on the Turkey Cutlets and the Croquette Potatoes. I was terrified the entire time I made the cutlets. Chef even came over and watched me do most of it. I am not a meat person, I always over cook it. But these turned out really well! They were really good to! For those who have never had Croquette Potatoes you are missing out! They are mashed potatoes dipped in breadcrumbs and deep fried. AKA heaven in your mouth. I’ve never had Spaghetti Squash before, but this was really good. So sweet and tasty.

My Cutting board

So word of warning, plastic melts. Yes we all know this¬†empirically, but what you don’t realize, when you’re stressing over the turkey cooking, is that when you put the cutting board near the stove, it’s getting hot. There was plastic ALLLLLLL over the stove. It was really¬†embarrassing.

Roasted Turkey Roulade

A roulade is where you take the white meat of the turkey and pound it out, fill that with the dark meat and some spices, and then roll all that up in the turkey skin.

Mesclun Salad with Cranberries and Apples

This is a nice salad. The apples pair nicely with the dressing.

Blueberry and Peach Cobbler with Blueberry Whipped Cream

I made the Cobbler! It was really good! I also added some blueberries to the whipped cream so it would have a nice hint of flavor.
