3.two cucumbers small package of grilled chicken warmed

How to Make a Turkey roast and mashed potatoes for a Sunday meal?

Have you ever tried a turkey roast ? This was my first trying it, This roast was so good and easy to prepare!

Ever since I started my weight loss program , I'm always looking for ways to eat healthy, So I made this turkey roast that was easy to prepare.
First, I washed it off of course, then, I put chopped onions, and a half bell pepper and a cup of water in the bottom of the crock pot, and added the roast. I turned the crock pot on low and it slow cooked about five hours or so. It surprising to me of how much meat was on that little roast. It was enough for everyone to eat three times, and it smelled so good!  I made a gravy with 2 cups of water, a teaspoon of cornstarch, and 1/4 cups of soy sauce, then poured it over the turkey roast.  For the mashed potatoes, I like to make mine from scratch, so I boiled six medium potatoes until tender, mashed them up, and poured milk a little margarine and a little salt, and they came out good as usual. I love cooking in crock pots, some people call them slow cookers, I can put my food on, go to work and come back home with my meal ready to serve.

White Creamed Corn with bacon bits

This recipe is two steps which is easy to fix.
I love white creamed corn topped with bacon!
It seems that for me,bacon make everything tastes so good.  I no that bacon is not healthy, but I broke the rule today because it's not everyday that I eat bacon.  I came a long ways because in the past, I included bacon   in the majority of my veggies, but I have cut that down to at least once a week, then it will keep going down to once every twelve days and so on, but to be honest, I don't thing I will ever stop eating bacon completely. 


one frozen package of white cream corn, and bacon bits, cook it together and serve warm.
That's it! I told you it was easy, and I forget to mention it is good too! Now, you have a good side dish to try with the family.

How to make fresh fried okra taste great

Fried okra and bacon!

This is an easy recipe, and it can be served as a side dish.  If you love okra, you'll love this recipe.  Vegetables is something I purposely serve at every meal, and I usually exclude bacon , but I think a little bit of bacon every once in a while won't is ok for your diet. 


cut up about two pounds of fresh okra from the field, but rinse it before cutting it up. Next, start the bacon slices in the oven at 350 degrees, and cook until it golden as you see in the picture. Take the bacon out the oven, then pour olive oil instead of the bacon oil. into a frying pan along with the bacon. When the oil is hot, throw in the squash and stir constantly to prevent sticking and keep stirring until the okra is tender, very tender. then serve with a scoop of rice or it can be eating alone. That's it!  I told you it would be easy to make.  Minnie L Douglas
