We all are truly so blessed. I want to encourage you if you know of someone in need of a Thanksgiving meal this holiday consider making a Thanksgiving in a basket!
I know a very young struggling couple who financially couldn't afford a Thanksgiving meal. So I made a blessings basket.
And that was it. It doesn't take much time or money to make a blessings basket for someone!
As a Jennie-O Switch Circle Blogger I was sent an oven ready turkey breast and decided to pay it forward and give mine away this year in the basket. I have had one before and they are delicious! There is no need to prepare it or thaw. Just follow the very few simple directions on the back and your all set for the easiest, juiciest tasting turkey you ever had. Jennie-O is my trusted source for turkey. Period and I have tired a lot of turkey brands over the years. Jennie-O truly does take all the work out of it for you so you can focus on whats most important, spending time with your loved ones and friends.

Kielbasa Sausage Potato Skillet is a super fast, easy, & tasty one pan wonder for your whole family. I was given Jennie-o turkey kielbasa & sausage to make a meal. I shared the sausage with a friend and used the Hickory Smoked Kielbasa.
With 65% less fat than other kielbasa's, Jennie-O reigns supreme on giving you a healthier option than the market's other choices. And let me tell you they have a better flavor. A lot of low fat options lack in taste but with Jennie-o's offering you do not need to worry. You get both quality and taste.
For this simple yet hearty meal all you need is:
Just cut and chop your veggies in what ever style you desire. Coat the pan well with olive oil. I would add a little bit of oil to the veggies as well as your seasonings at this stage and mix together.
Jennie-O's top quality turkey meat is such a great way to ensure clean eating. The sausage is fantastic to work with and slice.
Add in your meat with the veggies together in the skillet. Cooked wrapped with foil in your 355 - 375 degree oven for 50- 60 mins depending on your oven.
This is a great clean easy meal.

Reason number one and I love this one.... are you ready? When you refer a friend and they use Groupon you earn $10 in free money per person to use at Groupon that could equal to free food, free trips, free eating out, free spa days, free local attractions and more.
Reason number two why you should use Groupon is it really can enhance your life by saving you money. Yes, saving to use towards the family budget is great, you can do that if you need to, but I have a bigger picture idea for you for. A bigger vacation you have always dreamed of some day. Where would you go? Why pay full price for something if you do not have to. Let's say you take the difference you save with Groupon each time you use them and put that money in an account and use it to invest in something to grow your money. You can literally grow your wealth by using Groupon. Then someday seriously take those dream vacations you have always wanted to take. It is possible if you set your mind to it!
Reason number three is they now have coupons. You do not even need to purchase a deal, join Groupon nor sign up for their email if you do not want to. You can use their coupons at your next trip to Wal-mart or Target for example online or offline in store.
I need to go visit family this summer and I will be going through Groupon to use coupons for Hotwire and Travelocity. Yes you can save money at those sites stand alone but why not save even more money by visiting them through Groupon using their coupons for those very sites! That is smart money. Smart savings.

I just love summer. But I also love being a Jennie-O Switch Circle Blogger. May's shipment brought a lot of joy to my family and others. I received these three turkey breast. Cajun Style, Oven Roasted, and Sun Dried Tomato. I did not want to keep all the Jennie-O goodness to myself so I gave two of them away to other people to try Jennie-O for themselves. As for myself I kept the Sun Dried Tomato turkey breast to create a brand new summer sandwich salad. A cool dish with a new twist. This was so much fun to think up and make.
I call it Summer Jubilee Turkey Salad. This was fun to create and simple. I wanted it to be bright, fresh, tasty and very easy to make. In the picture below is everything you need. Adjust the amounts of everything you use based on how much of course you'd like to make. I made a large bowl to share with others.
That's it. No other seasoning needed. It is low fat to the max. No mayo needed. This Summer Jubilee Turkey Salad is simple, easy, low fat and fantastic in taste. It is a great tribute to summer and it's colorful abundance. It is great for dieters yet perfect for anyone in love with flavor. Good clean eating at it's finest.

I love Chinese egg rolls they are simply fantastic to me. But lately I have to watch my carbs. This month I set out to fix this problem and I did. As a Jennie-O Switch Circle blogger I was sent their all natural turkey sausage. I tried it out in making a egg roll in a bowl. It really took me away!
What you need:
Ok the great thing about using Jennie-O's all natural trukey sausage is that is it only has 5 grams of fat! It is zero carbs and has 13 grams of protein. The sodium count is much lower than other sausage brands that I have compared it too.
This dish is so simple and a serving is only around 6-9 carbs depending on if you add a few frozen sweet peas for color.
This is enough to serve a large family or save for other meals during the week. Or you can cut the tube in half and the bag in half and make a smaller amount.
This fresh dish is healthy and fast. You just can not beat the flavor and the time it takes to prepare. Amazing.
In the average American diet we simply do not get all the nutrients a person needs. In this fast paced world who has time to get all they need in a day to be at optimal health? A great way to get healthy food fast is with green superfood. You can add superfood powder to cakes, smoothies and more. My personal favorite is smoothies.
Eight reasons to try super food powder:
The brand to get is Activa Naturals and here is why:

This is Jennie-O's BEST Turkey Chili recipe as shared from their site. I wanted to give it a try for myself. You can see my finished product in my photos, don't it look so good? I have to say it was!

Jennie-O has a lot of great recipes to sample at their amazing website. All of course low in fat! This chili serves six and is super filling. I loved the test! This is perfect for these cooler Fall evenings.

Turkey Kabobs are a great low fat meal option for anyone! You can use Jennie-O boneless turkey breast tenderloins as your source of protein in the kabobs. This is a great meat that is all natural, low in fat, low sodium. You typically would not think of using turkey on a kabob but why not! It is truly fantastic. I love the clean taste.
I put my kabobs in foil with a little olive oil, salt, pepper & garlic seasoning. Very simple but a great flavor! Use what ever seasoning you like. Bake on 380 for 55 minutes. Or you can place these foil packets of yumminess in your slow cooker to have dinner on a busy weekday night! Arriving home to a nice cooked meal is so easy. You won't even have to wash the pot if you have the individual foil packets!
