Turkey dinner

These fellas are what is for dinner tonight. Just kidding. We looked out the window this morning to find this little herd of turkeys running around our cul-de-sac. They come around every month or so, and the kids enjoy watching and yelling at them.
This is what we really had for dinner last night. Probably one of my favorite meals (fish, salad and bread)
I usually buy plain salmon and season it myself, but this time I just picked up the pre-seasoned fillets at Costco (they were cheaper than the regular ones)
Spring Salad
(Love, Love, Love this salad - reminds me of the salad at Bucca Di Beppo)
This recipe calls for the spring salad mix at Costco, but I just used ice berg lettuce and spinach leaves
Dried cranberries
Feta cheese
Walnuts (I used pecans, because that's what I had)
Apples, cubed
1/2 c. EVOO
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 Tbsp. minced shallot
Red Lobster Cheese Rolls
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • (I didn't have this so I just put in a pinch of cloves, dry mustard, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice) I've skipped this step entirely before, and they taste just as good.
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 Heat oven to 450.
  • 2 Mix Bisquick, garlic powder, milk and cheese until well blended.
  • 3 Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake 8-10 minutes.
  • 5 Combine butter, garlic powder, old bay, parsley and salt.
  • 6 Melt in microwave for 20 seconds.
  • 7 Brush top of biscuits with butter mix.
  • Meal Difficulty: 1
    Stars: 5
    Sorry if you get sick of all these recipes, but I'm going to start putting them on here so I can start compiling them in one location.

    That looks yummy! I love that salmon from Costco. It is delicious. Your salad looks great too. Do you feed it to the babies? Everytime I try to give Brooks lettuce he chokes on it. I want to know how you did your recipe link. (I know how to do that) but I mean the picture on the recipe link. I would like to do the same thing with my recipes. I still have mom's I am typing up so you get those too.
