Here's a tasty way to prepare turkey anytime of year. My family loves the tender turkey strips, colorful vegetables and crunchy cashews. You don't always have to fix the whole bird to enjoy the wonderful taste of turkey.

When I make meat loaf, I usually just mix together whatever I have on hand. One time I added leftover kidney beans I had in the fridge, and my family loved the meat loaf's soft texture. Now it's our favorite.

This colorful stir-fry is chock-full of tasty veggies, tender chicken chunks and a light, zippy sauce. Tangy oranges and crunchy cashews add extra pizzazz. "The recipe was an experiment," shares Nancy Johnson of Turah, Montana. "We love Asian food, and this dish filled the bill nicely."
My family loves this spicy tomato dish. I came up with the recipe about 25 years ago, after eating a similar dish on vacation in New Mexico. I came home and tried to duplicate it from memory, with delicious results!
This recipe originally called for chicken; in addition to pork, I've tried it with grouse for a change of pace.
The area I live in is very rural, and so many of my visitors stay overnight. Some of those friends send me fresh raspberries before they arrive as a hint they'd like me to serve this dish!
"This is a family favorite that's also popular with company," notes Alicia Glovor of Sterling, Alaska. "The herbs tucked under the skin give the turkey a wonderful aroma as it's roasting, and the lemon juice adds a subtle hint of citrus."
