I bought an already marinated turkey breast from our local Aldi store that I had to pop in the oven for one hour. It couldn't get much easier than that!

As for our sides, I made mashed potatoes and a simple gravy and some steamed frozen broccoli.

Mashed Potatoes:

8-10 bite size Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
2-3 T butter
1/4-1/2 C skim milk

Boil the potatoes in enough water to cover. Once they are fork tender, drain and leave in colander.
Place butter in potato pot to melt over medium-low heat. Add 1/4 C milk and let it warm through. Add the potatoes back to the pot and mash. Add more milk if they are not creamy enough. Season with pepper.


2-3 T butter
2-3 T flour
1 C chicken stock
1/2-1 C milk

Make a simple rue by melting the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Let butter brown a little and the add in the flour. Cook the flour butter mixture for 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken stock in and stir well to combine. Add as much milk as you need to make it creamy and the consistency you prefer. Season to your taste with pepper.
