Turkey Curry with Peas and Potatoes


   Happy Father’s Day!  Thank you to all Fathers whether they be fathers, step-fathers, grandpas, uncles or single moms who are doing double duty.   I was a single Mom to four children for 8 years before I met my green-eyed Irish guy.  It wasn’t easy but it was sure worth it.  The kids used to get me both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards because I was both Mom and Dad to them.  My green-eyed Irish guy is a step-father who has been promoted to Dad by the kids.  The grand babies call him Grandpa Green Light because of the green light from his camera.  If anything is broken, they tell their Mommy to have Grandpa fix it.  They sure do love their Grandpa Green Light and so do I.  Thank you for stepping up to be the kids’ Dad.                                                                   Turkey Curry with Peas and Potatoes
