Leftovers & A Recipe List

Today is a day of leftovers. We will have leftovers for dinner:

 I have leftover soreness from my workout yesterday...

And I have a leftovers request for you:

I may or may not have bought a 10lb turkey for just the hubby & I. We aren't cooking for Thanksgiving and I really needed the bones to make my Grandma's Turkey and Dumpling soup on Black Friday. 10lbs was the smallest I could find with bones! Don't judge me!

Ok so now that I have it, that bad boy is thawing nicely in the fridge, patiently waiting until I roast him on Wednesday night. I'm well aware of the plethora of leftovers we will have and I plan to freeze some of the meat for use later in the winter....because I don't want my hubby to be like this:

But I do enjoy turkey leftovers for several here's where you come in. I'm looking for some new recipes to try out with my leftover turkey. Do you have a favorite?

Here's one that I'm super excited to try:

Turkey, Cranberry, Bacon & Brie Panini

Send me some more!!

As a reward, this week I will share with you some secret family recipes:

Grandma Claire's Strawberry Jello
Mimi's Cornbread
Grandma Claire's Turkey & Dumpling Soup

As well as a photo adventure of me cooking my second turkey ever

Now if that doesn't get you excited...I don't know what will!

Oh wait, I do!!!!!

Check out the new tab at the top of the page! It lists all the recipes I've posted on the blog, broken down into categories.

Just click the title and it will link back to the original blog post! Sorry friends,  you'll just have to deal with the fact that they're not in alphabetical order.

Happy Tuesday!

I <3 leftovers. I often make bigger meals in the beginning of the week just so I can have leftovers :) What about a simple turkey quesadilla? Turkey, black beans, corn, cheese? Always a winner!
