I made this dinner on a night where I really didn’t feel like doing too much serious cooking. And incidentally right now, I don’t feel like doing too much serious writing. But, I can’t let it go – this dinner, as simple as it was, was pretty darn tasty.
I tend to buy things, thinking I will have all these wonderful ideas on how to use them soon, but that never happens. Or I decide I want to go low-carb and stop eating rice with dinner. In that case, package of Trader Joe’s multigrain pilaf (that comes in a little pouch, cooked and ready to heat up) isn’t all that useful. But, when I decided I just needed a little bit of rice to stuff some turkey cutlets, it was a lot easier than cooking some up.
So, I simply defrosted a couple turkey cutlets and pounded them out a bit thinner than they already were. I topped them with a small amount of the pilaf, some homemade cranberry sauce, and chopped rosemary, salt and pepper. Then they got carefully rolled up and secured with wooden skewers.
