My glorious 4-day weekend has come to an end. I tweeted yesterday that I literally jumped in the air and clicked my heels together because I still had one more day left in the weekend. We had a bang-up holiday filled with a big potluck-style Thanksgiving with friends combined with a 6th birthday party for my Goddaughter; Part II of her party the next day at American Girl; a kids’ performance of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas; a practice (dry) fishing run with our brand new fishing rods thanks to Black Friday; and a marathon movie night at our cousins’ new house. I’m so not ready to go back to reality.
At least we have leftovers to help us hang onto that Thanksgiving feeling a few days longer…
If you’re tired of eating the same plate of food that you on Turkey Day, let Chef George Duran woo you with some post-Thankgiving recipes. Your kids may have made faces at the green beans or turned up their noses at the stuffing, but you’ll win them back with these Leftover Turkey Sloppy Joes. If your hubby is all Thanksgiving’d out, take him South of the Border with this Leftover Turkey Taco Soup. And if you’re already missing the comfort foods of this past week, dig into some Turkey and Stuffing “Enchiladas”.
As for me? I’ve got to figure out a way to spice up what’s left of a startingly extra large pan of mac and cheese!
