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.

Oh these sound delicious. We just had some at PF Chang's Saturday evening--one of our favorites. I've never made them at home. I'm printing it out. Thanks, Annette

I think I may try something similar tonight. I need to eat more letuce and less bread.

This is so up my alley. I will be trying this soon. I love lettuce wraps all year 'round, too.

I came over here to see what's cookin' and I have to say that clip of the Shofar was awesome.
I didn't see a way to comment on that post so here I am. : )

Somebody stold my PF Chang reference. It was only a couple of weeks ago that I had my first-ever lettuce wraps. I like the peanuts in yours! thanks for participating in this.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I will be back to yours for sure. That lettuce wrap sounds yummy. I am getting ready to get back on a diet and this sounds like something I need to make. I think we have a lot in common and I look forward to knowing you better.

I went to the "Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association's" website and found this description:

Cowboy Mounted Shooting® is a multi-faceted equestrian sport in which contestants compete using two single action revolvers, loaded with blank ammunition specifically manufactured to CMSA standards. Mounted contestants shoot 10 reactionary targets while negotiating a specified course of fire on horseback.

a lot different than what ran thru my head when I saw your sign...
