Fast turkey dishes offer variety of meal, leftover choices
Remember the time when Sunday dinner with the whole family included great conversation while enjoying a warm, home-cooked meal? Today, more and more families are inundated with activities on the weekends — and some are missing the most important event: dinner, together as a family. According to a study conducted by Tufts University, nearly 80 percent of parents consider eating dinner with their family very important, but less than 50 percent actually sit down together regularly to eat.
You can change that. Start your family’s week off right by serving a classic favorite that you may not have thought about making year-round due to time constraints — a turkey dinner. With Jennie-O Tlirkey Store Oven Ready Turkey, which goes right from freezer to oven with absolutely no defrosting or cleaning, you can enjoy the great homemade taste of a whole or half turkey — without any fuss or mess.
, "People traditionally have thought of serving a whole turkey on special occasions, such as holidays,” said Steve
Lykken, senior vice president, retail division, jennie-O Turkey Store Sales, LLC. “With our oven ready turkey, you can easily serve a delicious turkey anytime — so you don't need a ‘special’ occasion to have a reason to enjoy a wonderful turkey dinner on Sunday night or any night.”
FAMILY FUN IN THE KITCHEN
For families who want to spend even more time togeth -er, prepare Sunday dinner and use the turkey leftovers for meals the rest of the week.
This will help save time during the week for fun activities, such as going for a walk or playing a game of basketball after dinner together as a fa rn-ity.
Consider child-friendly recipes that are easy to prepare and delightfully tasty, such as cashew turkey croissants. Parents can chop arid season the turkey, slice tine celery and chop the cashe ws, then the children can mix together the ingredients find fill the croissants. For a dinner with a little kick, try turkey stir * fry. Using leftovers, cut die turkey into cubes and toss with vegetables into a p*in and serve over hot rice.
TASTY LEFTOVER CHOICES
A good meal doesn’t have to be time-consuming or fancy. Recipes focused on simple, tasty and healthy meals are all you need to treat your family. This season, try refreshing turkey recipes, such as a springtime turkey, asparagus and brie omelet. For a light yet filling dish, whip up a layered gazpacho salad. Whatever you’re craving, turkey is a great complement and healthy choice for every meal.
Getting back to traditional family dinners isn’t difficult, but it does require commitment and a promise from you and your family. Recent studies indicate families who eat meals together are twice as likely to have better diets as those who do not. In addition, children who eat dinner with their parents are more likely to have good manners and fewer behavioral problems.
Slow down this Sunday and enjoy some time around the dinner table. Bring back the family tradition of connecting over a great meal. You’ll be happy you did it and your family will thank you.

Bruce Springsteen just released his latest CD, “Devils & Dust,” and it’s the third solo album of his career.
Following in the footsteps of previous solo releases “Nebraska” and “Ghost of Tom Joad," Springsteen once again digs deep into his soul for a dozen songs that cover a wide field of topics. It also marks the first time one of his albums comes with a parental warning notice. The graphic tune “Reno” is the culprit and deals with a man hiring a prostitute. The title cut was written shortly after U.S.
troops entered Iraq and is the most political track on the CD.
Once ajgain using producer Brendan O’Brien, Springsteen handles most instruments himself, accompanied by O’Brien and a select group of studio musicians. His wife Patti Scial-fa and Soozie Tyrell add additional background vocals.
He started a four-month solo acoustic tour April 25 in Detroit and at press time his only Texas show was an April 28 stop in Dallas. Hopefully he’ll make another pass through Texas after a short visit overseas this summer.
When the opening track of Rob Thomas’ new solo album kicks off, die first thing you think of is another Matchbox Twenty CD. Rocking as hard as anything Matchbox has ever done, “This Is How a Heart Breaks,”
kicks off the CD in fine fashion.
Thomas, who gained worldwide popularity by teaming with rock legend Carlos Santana a few years ago, led Matchbox Twenty to the top of the rock charts on all three of their albums. However, it was the songwriter inside that wanted to branch out and fly solo on an album of his own. So, with the band on extended vacation, Thomas took over 30 new songs in the studio and emerged with “Something to Be,” a collection of songs sure to please Matchbox Twenty fans and recruit thousands of new ones.
As his press release states, he wanted to make an album of solid songs, blending all of his musical styles and exploring new territory as both a singer and songwriter. In my opinion, he achieves each of these goals with ease.
