Tasty Tuesday - Hawaiian Style Turkey Stew

By Parentingsmh @parentingsmh
Okay, so now the reluctant cook gets cooking for real.  This is one of my signature dishes that I usually make in the oven.  Well, if you haven't noticed, it's July, and while I do have central air, I'm not messing up my 70 degree chill to use the oven. 
Today, I'm going stove top and I'm turning baked Hawaiian turkey into stew.  For my fellow, don't want to do a whole lot of dishes peeps, I kept this to one pot.
