Dried Mushroom Powder

About a month ago Meijers had 8 oz packages of mushroom buy 10 for $10 and get one free so I got 11- 8 oz packages of mushrooms. They were some nice looking mushrooms weren't they?

I wiped them all clean and sliced them, placed then in the dehydrator.

That's a lot of slicing. LOL

All nice and dried and waiting for the next step. I ran them through the food processor and ground them up pretty good but still not as fine as I wanted them so I ran them through the blender after that. They came out nice and powdery. Makes a great addition to soups, spaghetti sauce, soups and more when you have family members who will not eat anything with chunks of mushrooms in it. LOL My son will not eat mushrooms, little does he know that he has been eating them for months. I know I am a sneaky mommy!! LOL

The finished mushrooms on top. I put about 2-3 teaspoons in things that I cook.
Below the mushrooms is dried celery. Meijers had them on sale 10 for $10, get one free just like the mushroom. I got 11 packages of them, washed the celery, diced it and then dehydrated them. This was I can get celery in my hubby because he doesn't like celery but if they are really small pieces he will eat them.
And these will be good for a year.

Easy Peasy Stuffed Turkey Rolls

I haven't been able to blog for awhile because my garden finally came in so I have been busy canning. Plus I was busy caring 24/7 for a disabled uncle. His dementia and sundowners was getting worse and wearing me out. He went into a nursing home last month because I could no longer care for him 24/7 I am sorry to say.

For dinner tonight I made stuffed turkey rolls, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, home canned green beans and opened up a can of jellied cranberry sauce. The men folk must have really liked it because they cleaned their first plates and went back for seconds. LOL

A couple of weeks ago our local store had Jenni O turkey tenderloins on sale for buy 2 get 3 free. I got 10 of them total. I took one package today and sliced the tenderloins in half from side to side, end to end. Pound each one out a little between two pieces of plastic wrap to make them about a 1/4 inch thin. Then I took some store brand chicken stuffing mix, made it up and put two scoops on each piece of turkey, rolled them up and secured them with a tooth pick at each end. Place them in a casserole dish and then placed the rest of the stuffing in the middle. Placed in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes then took them out, opened a jar of roast turkey gravy, spooned it over top of everything and placed back in the oven for another 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

Before cooking of course. :)

Lookin good!! YUM!!!

Tender, moist and oh so yummy!! :)

An easy peasy Thanksgiving style dinner for any day of the week. Have I made you hungry yet?
