(excuse the hair in my face, it was sunny and breezy so I was having a hard time looking straight)
I am also making stock from a turkey carcass that is seriously HUGE. Don't you just love the word carcass? It is just so ...... savage. I also love the word savage. Okay, moving on.
Dallin is on a business trip. The first one since moving to the new company. Technically he has not even left yet and I already feel stressed about it. Normally he wouldn't be home for another 3.5 hours but I am feeling the effects of the trip. How does that even make sense?
Anyway, on to the menu:
Thanksgiving part II at my parents - turkey with the BEST cranberry stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, turnips, carrots, corn, buns and cranberry sauce plus pumpkin pie. (double burp)
cinnamon BBQ chicken breasts, roasted garden potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce
sloppy joes on buns since we have a TONNE and I never made it last week, oven fries, zucchini and caesar salad
Turkey pot pie with cheddar cheese crust made with the leftover turkey meat and this stock I am cooking today. Probably more broccoli since I have a lot to use up and a green salad with cherry tomatoes, cukes and whatever veggies I have in my fridge that need to get used
My MIL is coming to babysit so Dallin and I can go to the Temple so whatever she serves or if I get the chance to make something ahead of time, it will probably be something in the crockpot ... I will have to think about that
No plans this weekend so one night we will have homemade pizzas or chicken sandwiches and one night we will go out for a date night
Okay lovelies, what are you cooking? What is your favourite thing to make with turkey leftovers? I love pot pie, especially my homemade one, or these tarragon vol au vents. Yummy!
