I don’t do chain emails.
If you send me something that I am supposed to send on to my 2 or 20 or 200 closest friends / favorite people / important personages / and back to you to prove that I did it…..
I don’t send it on.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a prayer or a photo collage or a warm fuzzy sentiment or a joke….
I don’t send it on.
I get a lot of them.
Most I look at; a few make me laugh; a few of the photo collages are pleasurable to look at.
But I don’t send them on.
There are rare exceptions.
I would estimate that 1 out of 50 I pass on to, perhaps, 1 or 2 other people.
This one, forgive me, but I thought was actually worthy of a blog post. It really is brilliant.
If I led you astray, bash me in the comments.

To make up for my presumption…..
Turkey with Peppers, Feta and Olives
10oz (300gr) turkey cutlets or tenderloin
2 cloves garlic
1/2 green pepper
1/2 red pepper
4oz (120gr) mushrooms
1/4 cup green olives (about 15)
3.5 oz (100gr) feta
1 tbs tomato paste
2 tsp tbs olive oil
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 tbs sherry (optional)
2 tsp cornstarch (Maizena) dissolved in 2 tbs water
Thinly slice onion. Mince garlic. Cut the peppers into strips. Trim and slice the mushrooms. Slice the olives in thirds. Cut the turkey into strips – bite-size.
Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, peppers to skillet and stir-fry for 4 minutes. Add garlic, mushrooms and stir-fry another 4 minutes. Add turkey and stir-fry 3 – 5 minutes, until golden. Add chicken stock, sherry, tomato paste and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Dissolve cornstarch in water. Add to skillet and stir until thickened. Add olives, feta and stir, just until the feta starts to melt. Remove from heat and serve.
I served this on Portuguese couscous – something I recently discovered in our ‘International Foods’ section. I think in the U.S. it’s known is Israeli couscous.
Now, go back, click and watch – all of it.
It really is brilliant!
