After a week of frozen dinners and lots of saltine crackers, I found myself ready to cook again. Last night after church we had kind of a hodge podge meal, with the main dish being a Turkey Cranberry Braid. Because I was so hungry, I didn't take as many pictures of each step. First I cut up the turkey in to small pieces, then just started adding the rest of the ingredients and mixing them together...

On a pizza stone, take 2 cans of crescent rolls and separate each triangle. Place triangles on the pizza stone, facing out.

Fold the tips of the crescent roll pieces in to the center. Then brush the top with a lightly whisked egg white, and sprinkle with cheese.

This weekend at work I was given some roasted red pepper bisque. So even though it was blazing hot outside, we decided we would try the bisque as a side. I tasted it as it was warming up, and could tell it wasn't my favorite, so I gave Fletcher creative liberty with the soup, since he would be the one eating it. So every time I looked over he was putting something new in there! And Fletch is great about food presentation, and made the soup look like it was straight out of a gourmet kitchen!

And then finally it was time for the turkey braid to come out of the oven. I think it is definitely a recipe I will make again. Personally, I was a little overwhelmed by the dijon taste, but I did still like it overall (but my taste buds are kind of lame). Fletcher L-O-V-E-D it. And took all the leftovers home to eat this week for lunch.

Here are the ingredients:
1/2 cup celery
3 tablespoons parsley
9 oz (ish) package of deli turkey
1/2 cup Craisins
1 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup mayo
2 tablespoons dijon
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cans Crescent rolls
1 egg white

Oh and the recipe called for celery, and I decided I could do without the extra crunch, so it was great without celery, but if you love celery I'm sure it would be a great addition.
