"What's for dinner?" That's the question that looms over me all day, at least most days. I have found great peace in my life when I know that dinner is cooking in my crock pot. I like the way the house smells and I can anticipate a delicious stress-free dinner.
This is a recipe that everyone in my family enjoys, which is not always the case around here. My boys and husband ooh and aah with meals where the carbs are flowing but, I don't do well eating that way. Therefore, many nights I prepare two meals or someone eats leftovers. Obviously, having a meal that everyone enjoys brings peace to me.

Turkey with Apples in the Crock Pot
4 organic apples, peeled, cored and sliced
4 natural turkey breasts cutlets
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1-2 cups water
Place apples in the bottom of the crock pot and lay turkey cutlets on top of the apples and season. Pour in the broth. I like to add more broth for a soupy dish.
Cover and cook on Low for 6-8 hours or on High for 3-4 hours.
Enjoy your day.
May be served with rice.
I have also made gravy with the broth when it has completed cooking.
1 tablespoon Earth Balance margarine
1 tablespoon gluten-free flour
1 cup broth, approximately
In a medium-sized skillet melt the margarine. Whisk in the flour and cook the mixture about 1 minute. Whisk in the broth breaking up any clumps. Bring the mixture to a bubble and season with salt and pepper if you desire. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened.
I'm not the expert on gravy, so if you have any suggestions, hints or recipes I would appreciate you sharing them!
