Stuffed Turkey Cutlets with Roasted Acorn Squash and Broccoli
My gosh I’m sure I’ll have 1,000 posts one day titled “amazing dinner” but this one was great – and we just kind of threw it together as usual (I love it when throw-together dinners turn out great!).
Sipped on a diet tonic and lime while we cooked and I made my lunch for tomorrow:
For the stuffed turkey, we took 2 small cutlets taken from a turkey breast, butterflied them (cut them open like a book) and then stuffed them with 1/2 oz each of reduced-fat Italian cheese, spinach and mustard mixture (super easy – just mix together in a bowl and stuff!) We also brushed the outside of the turkey with more grainy mustard. Baked at 400* for about 15-18 minutes. These were delicious and just the right portion side – no bigger than my fist!
For the acorn squash, we just cut in half, removed seeds, microwaved for 3 minutes to get the cooking going and roasted cut-side-down for 25 minutes. Then we added some Smart Balance spread and brown sugar and cooked for 5 minutes more (the pan was covered in burned juices – that’s OK!)
SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!! We ate the skin too. I told you I eat almost all skins!! It’s thin just like eggplant skin and probably contributed to more fiber!
And the broccoli, steamed in the microwave for 4 minutes or so and topped with lemon-pepper seasoning
Dinner calories: Only 406 for this whole meal!!!
This afternoon around 4:00 I snacked on 2 clementines, half a serving of Mary’s crackers and 5 almonds. It was perfect and kept me satisfied until we ate dinner at 7:30.
I’m SO excited!!!! I got a new laptop!!! More details on why later this week It’s got a cool slot for me to insert my camera card so I don’t have to lug around a cord. Fabulous!!
