Turkey Stew Recipe

So the turkey stew from my last entry ended up being very tasty, so I thought I'd post my recipe as it were. I'm not sure how big my crock pot is, the bigger size tho lol, 4 qts?

2 lbs turkey tenderloins (or other turkey parts)
2 medium onions, chopped
5 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
3-4 good-sized carrots, chopped
4-5 white potatoes, chopped
3-4 stalks celery, chopped
1 bunch kale, chopped
1 can navy beans, rinsed
1 can great northern beans, rinsed
(the exact amount of veggies/beans is quite up to you, as are which veggies you use, I think just about any would be good)
spices (I used dried dill, paprika, curry powder and fresh marjoram)
salt/pepper to taste
~1 cup flour (I used rice, but others should work fine)
3-4 tblsps oil (I used olive, use whichever you prefer)

Put the flour in a bowl and add dry spices. Cut your turkey into more or less bite-sized pieces. Heat frying pan and coat with oil. Pat both sides of each turkey piece with the flour/spice mixture. Braise for a minute or two on each side. You may need to add a bit of oil between batches. Throw the meat in the slow-cooker. To the same pan add the onions and garlic; saute until translucent but not crispy. Add the wine to the onions and stir until all accumulated brown bits are scraped off. Pour onion/wine mixture into crock pot.

Everything else is cake! Throw everything else in and give it a stir or two. I usually leave my crock on high for about 2 hours and then turn it to low for another 4 hours or so. Add another dose of dried spices and the fresh marjoram when you think you've got about another half hour of cooking left. Adjust any spices to taste. I like to add a bit of liquid amino acids at this point too and just a tad of soy sauce, completely optional.

Serve right out of the pot or for the next week or so, tastes even better on day two onwards in my opinion.

Summer harbor walk

Went for a lovely summer walk with (e:matthew) and (e:paul) this afternoon. Started at our place then headed over to the harbor. Mulled over going on a walking tour and decided to just make our own tour. Landed at Dug's Dive for some eats, pretty decent food if you haven't been there, specially if you like seafood. Walking directly back from Dug's to our house took just under an hour and a half.

This was our route to Dug's Dive:

Took some pics of the journey. Good old rusting factories and buidings being slowly eaten by nature.

Sad terry bwoken pinky

As a part of my growing tend towards destroying my body, I have officially broken a bone! woot! It's my first, so I'm a lil excited lol. In the X-ray it's the diagonal line in my first joint. It happened when a football tried to tear my pinky off. I did it two weeks ago and only went to the doctor on Monday, cuz it just didn't seem like it was healing right. Now, I have this stupid half-cast thing on for at least the next two weeks, blah. This entry which should have taken 2 mins to type has taken 10... So, wo is me, and all that :P

On the bright side, I officially quit WoW. Was on the quitting side of the fence, and the injury made it totally impossible to play effectively, so I'm free!!
