Sometimes it happens by accident and that's even better.     Then you challenge people to "say it 10 times real fast".  Bourbon Bacon Burger.  Bourbon Bacon Burger.....Even more fun.  Anyhoo.

Adams Apple Cider Slaw Dressing Turkey Breasts

I never really thought of making turkey for dinner.  Turkey is either sliced thin for sandwiches, or it's reserved for Thanksgiving.  That's it. Until a neighbor told me about making turkey breasts that were better than any chicken you could ever imagine.  She said she found them at Lidl, so I went on a mission...
