A new teacher quickly discovers that they learn more from one week of classroom experience than four years of formal education. In fact, the real learning begins the moment the classroom door closes and you are faced with a class of students who are looking to you for the answers. Well, the same is true in life: the moment your formal education ends, your life's education begins. Learn along with me....

Turkey Roulade....a.k.a. where Aliza gets it from
The other night I tried out a new recipe from this awesome cookbook my mom bought me. I knew (or I hoped), before I even started that it was going to be yummy, so I decided to document my progress.....also to prove that Aliza isn't the only chef in the family!
I started with a mixture of spinach, ricotta and shredded mozzarella:
Then I pounded out some turkey breasts and spread out the spinach and cheese mixture:Next I made a quick fresh marinara sauce:
Then I rolled up the turkey, secured them with toothpicks and spooned the sauce over them. Here they are, ready to go into the oven:
After baking them for a bit, I added shredded mozzarella to the top. They came out looking like this:
I think they ended up looking just like the picture in the cook book:
I would like to add that all of this deliciousness happened on my first day back at work after vacation.....
