When I first fixed this, we were living on a ranch along a river with lots of game. Wild turkey can be dry, but not prepared this way! Of course, it's just as tasty with store-bought turkey. And the gravy it makes is out of this world.
I'm a widow with two children, five grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
I received this recipe when we moved to Oklahoma. A going-away party was held for us, and the guests were asked to bring their favorite recipe as a remembrance. The special friend who brought this one has since died, and every time I make it, a flood of wonderful memories fills my heart.
I've enjoyed cooking ever since I was a child. I can remember standing on a stool and watching Mother make bread on the old Hoosier cupboard. I prepared meals for 23 years at a retirement home and made this recipe often.
Meet the Cook: Next to hamburger, round steak probably is the most frequent dinner "guest" at our place! I'm always experimenting with recipes, changing them to fit our tastes...this one's easy and good.
Our little town has a post office, a cafe, two gas stations and two country stores. My husband and I have a pair of sons, 13 and 9, and a daughter, 7. I work part-time in the cafeteria at their school (it's small, with only about 100 students or so) helping prepare lunch.

Meet the Cook: My family likes chow mein...this is a little like that but not quite as exotic.
I've been cooking with a wok for a couple years, ever since I bought one at a rummage sale. My husband's a veterinarian, and our big meal's in the evening when everyone's home (we have four children, ages 9 to 1-1/2).
