Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are having Thanksgiving lunch at my parents house. It’s lunch, or technically 11:30am, because my father, a grown man, won’t wait to eat the main meal in the evening. (Think, grown man who’s used to throwing temper tantrums, and getting his way.)
The other day I was able to buy 2 really big turkeys for approx 30 cents per pound. My next question or polite demand… I want recipes people! Casseroles, soups, chilis… anything and everything that you could use left over turkey. They can be ‘old tried and trues’ or new ones that you think sound good. Post ’em people!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Steph!
    I don\’t have any recipes for left-overs…I\’m happy just making a cold turkey sandwich…Turkey cranberry sauce, mayo, toasted bread–that\’s it.  Then chase it down with left-over pie.
    Enjoy the holiday!

    Hi Steph,
    Hope you had a good thanksgiving with your family.
    Regarding recipes for left over turkey I\’m afraid I can\’t help you there as apart from  having it cold with pickles salad and crusty bread the next day or making a curry is all I know. To be honest my family get sick of it and I always end up throwing a lot of it away. This year I will be just buying the turkey crown and cooking a bit of pork with it.
    I am enjoying a bit of me time today lol 🙂 I have a day off work so I have just had my future daughter-in-law round to cut and colour my hair, I\’m really pleased with it. I am going to have a spot of lunch and then do some ironing while watching daytime tv. And why not eh!
    Hope you are well and have a wonderful week. Love and hugs Gill. xx

    Bob, Thanks for the links! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and I hope that everything up at the cabin is OK.
    Laoch, I couldn\’t ask for more. Thank You!
    Jade, Thanks! It sounds like you had a great turkey day!
    Geri, OK girl, give me an idea of what you put in it. Do you use potatoes, barley, noodles? I love soup so it sounds really good.
    SideMan, That\’s the way I like my turkey sandwich too. My kids give me grief because I put the cranberry sauce on it. Ummm you have any left over pie for me? lol
    Greg, I\’m thankful I have you in my blog world. You\’re a great friend. The best to you and your loved ones too, and yep, leftovers are a good thing!
    Nooner, I hope you and your family had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
    Osama, I had no idea what you were talking about until I went to visit MEGA, and saw your comment there. I will say that I\’m not shocked, and maybe harassing people is a fast way to get someone mad enough at you to try and get rid of you.
    Sheep urine? Why do I think you\’d enjoy that?
    Seth, THANK YOU! That recipe sounds wonderful, and in fact we are going to have it tomorrow. I froze the extra turkey and it\’s just waiting to become a yummy tostado. Pass the guacamole!
    g.j., I\’m glad! It makes me feel good to know that you thought they were funny.
    Gill, You made me drool! Crusty bread… CURRY (there\’s a comment on your blog!) Now, what is pickles salad?
    I\’d love to see the new hair do, and yes, you do deserve a bit of daytime TV! Put your feet up and relax…. just don\’t forget to send me a curry recipe! LOL
    BIG HUGS to you All, Steph

    Yo!  Your Dad is a man after my own heart – I have been pulling that for years.  As to recipes – just think of suff you like that might do well with turkey added or substituted.  Make some stuff uo, then name the successes after yourself and publish.  If you run out of turkey, use cat.

    Um… take a piece of bread, butter it, apply turkey, eat.  That\’s pretty much the extent of my expertise.  Glad you had a good thanksgiving… brunch?

    Hey BH! It was an interesting Thanksgiving to say the least. lol
    David, You kill me. Master of hissy fits huh? lmao OH, and, use cat, indeed. Pfffffft!
    Jane, You gourmet chef you! Actually that\’s one thing I can\’t stand on a sandwich. I remember my grandmother used to make them with butter. No matter how hungry, I wouldn\’t eat it. Just an aversion I have. lol
