The other white meat ~ turkey

What's for dinner tonight?  Tom and Chandler are out at a skate and pizza party for Awana.  So we at home are having turkey and lentil soup and no bake cookies.  Yes they are healthy if you are a butter loving person!  Oats, rice milk, cocoa, butter, almond butter.  Okay 2 cups of sugar is a bit much but so what.

1/2 tsp each poultry seasoning, pepper, ground sage

Brown together in a skillet then add to soup when done:

No Bake Cookies
