Exciting WEEKEND! and a yummy recipe

Our weekend is pretty exciting!
We are foster parents but only get calls for kids that are in danger or need to be hidden, so far anyway. But a few years ago, Halle was 1 and a half and Payton was 9 months we got a call for premature boy/girl twins. They were SO tiny! We had them for about a month!
We got a call earlier in the week asking us if we would take the twins, now 2.5 for 4 days. I am SO excited to see them again! Brian gets to see them at the State Office Building every now and then, but I haven't seen them since they left! They are arriving today! It will be a busy weekend, but WAY worth it!

So it is not a secret we are TRYING to eat a little healthier, Brian's cholesterol is a HUGE problem and so we are trying to avoid red meat, poor me, I love my red meat!
So here is a completely YUMMY recipe for Turkey Joe's! I ate more than anyone!
I hope you enjoy it!
