Turkey, kale, and beans

So I've mentioned we're in a bit of a routine with dinner...ground turkey and beans, repeat, repeat. But I ended up with some kale in the fridge, and decided to make that addition as well. Game changer. This was an awesome bowl of food!

Turkey, kale, and beans  (adapted roughly from a sparkpeople recipe) 1 package ground turkey (I think the kind we buy has a little over a lb in it) 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1 onion, chopped 2 cups chicken stock 1 package onion soup mix 1/2 stick of butter 1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained 1/2 bunch of kale, stems removed and then cut into bite sized pieces salt and pepper to taste
I cooked this all up in one big stock pot..less mess! Brown turkey over medium high heat Add chopped peppers/onions Add broth, butter,  and onion soup mix Add beans and kale Let heat through/simmer 10 minutes or so.
Um..that's really. You can eat it now. All in all, kinda healthy. You can opt not to put the butter in it, I did b/c I like …

Blueberry Scones

Blueberry Scones (adapted from Annie's Eats)

1 frozen stick of unsalted butter-grated on a box grater
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
2 cups AP flour (plus more for rolling)
1/2 cup sugar (plus more for sprinkling)
2 teaspoons baking power
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp lemon zest

3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Oven at 425

Combine dry ingredients (including zest)
Whisk together sour cream and heavy whipping cream-set aside
Toss dry w/grated butter just until the butter is coated (you don't need to cut it in since the butter is already all grated)
Add milk/sour cream mix. Combine.
At this point you are going to have a sticky 'biscuity' looking dough.
Add the frozen blueberries, and enough flour to make it less sticky.
Your hands will get dirty, but knead it a bit, just to incorporate the blueberries into the dough, add bits of more flour if you have to.
Once you've gotten the dough to hold into a decen…

If avocado is wrong..

I don't want to be right.

Do we see a trend here folks? That's 3 avocado recipes in a row. I wish I could tell you that while I am not blogging I'm coming up with all sorts of new and delicious foods. Well, I am..sort of. I'm not posting alot because we're watching what we're eating and most of our meals consist of ground turkey and beans. Husband is hooked on it. And that's all it is really..ground turkey, browned, then add a can of rinsed black beans. Sometimes I'll put taco seasoning in it, sometimes ranch powder, but that's about it.
The other night when I made it, I used taco seasoning...then made up a rough salsa (onion, tomato, red peppers, and avocado) then ate it on TOP of a whole avocado..salted liberally. And it was all sorts of amazing and delicious.
