Menu Plan for Winter I: Week 4, Day 1

Turkey with Peppers, Feta and Olives
Large or Pearl Couscous

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for "menu" instructions

     I serve this on large or pearl Couscous, which is very large - like the ancini d'pepe (frog's eyes) pasta than traditional couscous and has to be boiled, rather than just steeped in hot water.   You can substitute Basmati Rice, tiny pasta or Barley.

Turkey with Peppers, Feta and Olives over Couscous   

Total time: 30 minutes
   The Mediterranean flavors of peppers, olives and feta make bland turkey special.  Serve over Toasted Couscous, Basmati Rice or Barley. Use more or less feta, according to taste.
