Thanksgiving has come and gone another year. It is so cliché, but time seems to fly by quicker and quicker each year.
We had the family over for Thanksgiving & this year we prepared a Ham & a Turkey. With so much food leftover, I am cruising the internet looking for the best recipe to utilize the amazing leftovers. I am leaning towards a turkey pot pie & perhaps some lentils made with the ham bone. Whatever I choose, I will be sure to post about it once complete.
Right now I have the turkey carcass roasting in the oven so I can make turkey stock. Here’s a pic of what’s going on in the oven right now…it smells absolutely divine!!
Our family has much to be thankful for this year and hope you do too! I am constantly looking at the positive in any situation that doesn’t go the way I planned. For instance: Alex was sick on Friday and it gave me the opportunity to relax and recover from all the work leading up to Thanksgiving. It also gave me an opportunity to read a couple of books and find an Advent book for the boys that looks fantastic. Anthony is sick today & while it is a GORGEOUS day here, I am able to get some things done around the house so I am ready for the week and I am able to make turkey stock and find creative ways to utilize the leftovers. The past 3 days didn’t turn out like I planned, but I have been able to spend some quality time with the boys and also catch up on a few things around the house. This also gives me an opportunity to try a new cookie recipe I found in the Martha Stewart Food Magazine I get on my iPad (which is awesome, I might add). I will post on that later as well.
I hope you each had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of delicious food & family & friends…even if things didn’t go as planned!
