A few hours of cooking - food for the week!

When it comes to having easy to bring weekday lunches - it is a struggle. We try to bring lunch everyday, taking in leftovers. This week we had a snowy Sunday forecast and decided to make a turkey breast. The turkey is easy to do - cooks for about 2 hours - and lasts all week! Today is Wednesday and we are still working on finishing it!

Every time I make a turkey breast I do it a little differently. This week was inspired by the other leftover ingredients we had in the fridge.

Roast Turkey Breast with Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish

Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish
1 whole orange, unpeeled, cut into eighths and seeds removed
1 12 oz. bag of fresh cranberries

Place cranberries and oranges in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is all in small pieces.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a roasting pan (or brownie pan, whatever you have), place onions and carrots in the bottom of the pan.
Place turkey breast on top of veggies.
Lift up skin and spread relish underneath.
Pour about 1/2 - 1 cup of chicken broth over the top of the turkey.
Brush turkey with olive oil.
Sprinkle with about 1 tbsp. or so of poultry seasoning.
Place in oven and bake for about 2 hours (until temperature indicator pops up).
Let rest, slice, and eat!
