I've relabeled "leftovers" as "prepared foods." It's all about the marketing.

Dear patrons and protagonists,

I think I made it so you can subscribe to the blog by entering your email address in the form at the top of the blog.  Let me know if you try it and if it works; I am still tinkering with it!

If you are still wading through leftover turkey from all the holiday dinners, or you know you'll have more after New Year's Eve dinner, here is a simply delicious dinner that Mr H and I couldn't get enough of when we made it.  You could also use chicken or pork or tofu.

Moo-Shoo Turkey Wrap

I got this off of a website after Thanksgiving a long time ago, before Mr H and I were even married.  It's easy to multiply this recipe for lots of people because it just takes some more seasoning and another head of cabbage!

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 pound sliced mushrooms
4 green onions, sliced, green and white separated
1 teaspoon peeled grated fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 - 3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 lb shredded cabbage
1/3 cup water
2 cups shredded leftover cooked turkey
3 tablespoons soy-sauce (I used Bragg's because it's lower sodium)
3 tablespoons (plus additional for serving) hoisin sauce
I serve these with homemade plum sauce
8 8-inch flour tortillas, warmed

1. In a 12-inch skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon oil on medium-high until hot.  Add mushrooms and cook 6 - 7 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.  Transfer mushrooms to plate; set aside.

2. In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tsp oil on medium high.  Stir in white portions of onions, ginger, crushed red pepper, and garlic.  Add coleslaw mix and cook 2 minutes or until cabbage begins to soften, stirring constantly.  Add water and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until water evaporates and cabbage is tender-crisp, stirring frequently.  Stir in turkey, soy sauce, 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce, and mushrooms; cook 3 minutes or until turkey is hot, stirring constantly.

3.  If you like, spread additional hoisin sauce on tortillas to serve; top with turkey mixture and sprinkle with green portion of green onions.  Roll up to eat out of hand.  Delicious, juicy, wonderful.
