Ground Turkey Stir Fry

Ground Turkey Stir Fry

Usually on Tuesdays we do stir fry! Why you ask? I do my grocery shopping on Tuesdays which is when most grocery stores receive new produce. This is a great way of getting rid of the produce you may not have used over the weekend to make room for the new stuff. Honestly my ingredients for this change on a weekly basis so really you could use any veggies or meat that you have. My kids really like it with ground turkey but you could easily replace it with grilled chicken, steak, or ground beef. Or if you’re from Alaska, go with the ground moose:)
