Within a 20-30 minute ride from my home I have a large variety of food stores to select from: Shop-Rite, Acme, Foodtown, Whole Foods, Aldi, Wegmans, Lidl and Trader Joe’s. Although there is such a variety of food stores, some with sale flyers, the selection of meal choices was looking thin this week.
On my weekly excursion to Wegmans, I debated between chicken, pork and turkey as possible suppers for the week. I finally decided on a turkey London Broil ($5.79/lb.) versus purchasing an oven ready seasoned boneless turkey breast in homestyle gravy ($6.49/lb. with a $2 coupon.) With the turkey in hand, it was now time to find a recipe to dress it up. I visited the Shady Brook Farms recipe web page, as I had tried their recipe for Fresh Lemon Pepper Turkey and it was delicious. After a reviewing the selection, I chose Lemon Sage Turkey Breast Roast for preparation. The turkey is brushed with a coating of olive oil, fresh sage, lemon juice, fresh parsley, lemon zest and kosher salt. Luckily the only ingredient I didn’t have on hand was a lemon.
After making the wet rub for the turkey, it’s roasted in the oven for approximately 50-60 minutes. The olive oil dressing helped the turkey breast retain its moisture and provide a delicious lemony, savory flavor. We let the turkey rest for a bit before slicing. My husband and I enjoyed this easy to prepare turkey dish for supper.
You could do the olive oil dressing the night before however, I made my olive oil dressing in the morning and then brushed it on the turkey so that the turkey could absorbed the flavors. Later, all I had to do, was to pop it in the oven. I might suggest that you remove the turkey about 30 minutes before placing in the oven. This will allow the meat to come to room temperature before roasting. I placed mine straight from the refrigerator and it took about 30 minutes longer to roast.
The next time I might try cooking it on the grill, but on a sheet of foil. This is a terrific weeknight supper.

Innovation is always important, we cannot always rely on the same things that we have always used. Times are changing, people are changing. Many of us here want to be amazed about how science and technology just keeps on evolving. In my opinion, it is important for companies to get fresh ideas if they want to remain in business. Today, people do not just want something they can use, they want something that can amaze them, something that can wow them.
