Like many other folks everything is about eating leftovers up after Thanksgiving. This is the only time when a turkey sandwich has to have cranberry sauce, gravy and stuffing on it and when breakfast has to turn into a heart attack.
That above is cubes of leftover dressing fried with bacon, butter and fried eggs. Only Thanksgiving makes this Frankenstein creation not only desirable but possible.
There is a reason Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Too bad some other bully of a holiday is always trying to step on Thanksgiving. Must be jealous.
At least one of our leftover creations was a little more wholesome….
We used some leftover dark turkey meat and roasted rutabaga to make a chicken pot pie. We also had a leftover reduction sauce from braised venison that we threw into the mix in lieu of chicken broth, hence the dark color.
Not everyone appreciates our cooking. When our friends came over for flan and tamales (recipes to come) we made sure to have this on hand for the kids. A commenter once said they never made anything special for kids; kids either ate what was served or didn’t. If we were parents we’d have the same philosophy, but we’re not so our philosophy is to have PB&J on hand so there are more tamales for us.
While the remnants of Thanksgiving are still around so are signs of the next big holiday.
