I have been on quite a hiatus from this blog lately. I have been more than slightly overwhelmed and stressed lately, work has been crazy, life has been busy, school work, karate, swimming, husband has been away alot for work, doggy has not been well again and the rest of life and chores still need to be done all with Thanksgiving and an election thrown in just to liven things up!
We have been cooking and baking when there is time and have been trying out some of your lovely blog recipes. Those I will share later.
Our Thanksgiving was in October so we did have a turkey dinner. We also has alot of leftovers. I have been really trying not to waste food and wanted to use every last bite. After a few suggestions which Evie quickly was not up to eating she wanted to make up a dinner…I let her and this is what resulted.
She did it all herself, even took the pictures with the exeception of the one above. It was very good, her dad and I really liked it. She thought it needed more gravy, and it probably could have used more, but that was all we had.
SInce American Thanksgiving will be coming up in November and then Christmas after that we thought this was a good time to share this “recipe”.
Basically she mashed the potato, carrot and turnip together
chop enough turkey to cover bottom of casserole dish
Then dollop the cold gelatinous gravy evenly over that (we put about a teaspoon of water over each dollop to help it loosen once it started cooking).
then sprinkle the leftover stuffing over that, note ours only has stuffing on a portion. That is because Evie doesn’t like stuffing
Spread mash over the top and give a sprinkle of salt and pepper
Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes or until piping hot through the middle
Serve with leftover cranberry sauce, or crack open a new can!
We did still have a large container of dark meat that did not go to waste, we gave it to our neighbor and they used it up for supper that night.
Use up those leftovers!!
Food bogging can take quite a bit of your time and sometimes we just need a little break 🙂
