I know this isn't a typical "Fall" recipe, however, I love lettuce wraps. They're lite, tasty, easy and I use roasted peanuts in them...and those ARE Fall fare.

2 lbs. of ground turkey
sesame oil, about 3 tbsp
hot chili oil (1/2 tsp, unless you like hotter)
light soy sauce
pepper to taste
garlic to taste
1/2 c chopped, roasted peanuts
1/2 pkg of stir fry seasoning
2 tb Teriyaki-Sauce
1 bunch chopped green onions
half a bag of cole slaw mix
iceberg lettuce, washed, separated (I also use butter leaf lettuce)

Brown ground turkey (browned it in a smidge of sesame oil & a little hot chili oil.)
Add some light soy sauce, pepper, garlic, 1/2 pkg of stir fry seasoning & 2 tbs of teriyaki sauce.
After browned about half way add 1 bunch chopped green onions & about a half a bag of cole slaw mix (just thin-sliced cabbage & a little carrot not enough to worry about) and finished browning. Toss in peanuts the last couple of minutes.

Wash a head of iceberg lettuce; peel off whole leaves, dry, place on plate.
When turkey mixture is done, put some in the bowl alongside lettuce leaves; place on table ready to roll up and eat. Have extra soy sauce, peanut sauce or sesame seed sauce available for dipping or spreading on each roll.
Serve with crispy noodles and Hot/Sour Soup.
