    This is a great recipe for ground turkey. The curry flavor is mild but makes a nice change from the usual. Thank you so much for posting this, I lost my copy and wanted to make it. Good Job


This is a picture of me from about the time I started experimenting with cooking. Once I put peanut butter in Dream Whip (a Cool Whip type product you make from a powder with milk that was very popular in the Midwest when I was growing up) and invented peanut butter Dream Whip and tried to hide it in the back of the refrigerator. My mom found it and announced at dinner that I had made the most wonderful dessert topping! I think she put it on chocolate cake that night. It was very fun.
