Ground Turkey Plantain Hash


Happy Friday!!  Tomorrow is actually my Friday with work, but I can still celebrate it being Friday today.  I don’t have anything planned for the weekend.  Seriously, absolutely nothing.  January is a slow month with not much going on.  I’m trying to use this time and be productive with things that I always want to do, but never find the time to do.  Like, going through pictures on my camera and camera roll in my phone and getting pictures developed to put in my photo album.  I am still old school and get real pictures developed and put them in albums.  I can’t imagine not having photo albums around my house.  One of my greatest memories at my Grandmas house is going though all of her old photo albums.  I still do it when I visit!  I want to get some pictures of Central Park in New York, from our trip 2 Thanksgivings ago, developed on a canvas for wall art in our home.  So yeah, things like that.


This meal is similar to my Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Hash.  I love dishes when all the ingredients are mixed together.  They are the best.


Enjoy your weekend!
