Sloppy Turkey Joes & Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Thanks to Dana for the inspiration for this one. DH loved it (according to him, "the streak continues"), and it was healthy and easy.

Sloppy Turkey Joe's
*ingredients are based on your taste - I don't like a lot of sauce, and I prefer more veggies, so that's what I did.
1 lb ground turkey
Prego mushroom sauce (whatever sauce you prefer, or use tomato paste & sloppy joe mix)
mushrooms, chopped fine
1 shallot, chopped fine
green or red bell pepper, chopped fine
garlic salt
kaiser rolls, toasted lightly

Saute ground turkey in a pan with herbs & spices, until mostly cooked through. Drain fat. Add vegetables and cook until done. Add sauce and simmer until ready to serve. Serve on toasted kaiser roll.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries
sweet potatoes, sliced into fry-shaped pieces

Line potatoes up on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and add herbs and spices to taste. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve with bleu cheese dressing.
