Thanksgiving Leftovers

NO LEFTOVERS…..

turkey sandwich (with notes) from Thanksgiving leftovers

NO leftovers this year, no turkey at my house, no house. I’m sad, sulking and starving. It’s been the first time in a long time that Thanksgiving was not held at our home, we went to my sister’s house and it was lovely. However, I have been dreaming and drooling about leftover turkey since last night and I have none. If I had been able to live at home and host Thanksgiving I would have plenty of leftovers. I would have tiptoed downstairs late last night, opened the refrigerator and displayed the leftovers on the table like a wedding dessert buffet. I would take pieces of white and dark meat turkey, haul out a large jar of Hellmann’s mayonnaise ( I am very brand loyal) and some Ocean Spray jellied cranberry sauce (again, brand loyal) and happily eat. I would pick things up with my fingers, I would have a bite of stuffing, maybe two. I would then go back upstairs and the next day, I would pile all the ingredients into one delectable sandwich and start all over again.

  1. This photo looks absolutely scrumptious. I did not have leftover turkey at my house either … I visited another family, as Ray was out of town visiting his mother. I did make cranberry relish, and ate it by the spoon in both its hot form and congealed form. I will make sure I have leftover at Christmas so I can create this nice concoction. I am a Hellman’s and Ocean Spray gal as well.

  3. I ate all the left-overs for both you and Mo! My husband “made” me freeze an apple pie I had bought — just in case there wasn’t enough desert — but I ate it anyway. There’s still some to sneak and I’ll dedicate it to you!

  4. Can I come along to Judy’s party too, or is it by invitation only, and I’d be intruding. I wouldn’t want to “crash” the party, and make a mess of things!

    We’ve had thanksgiving three times: on the offfical date, a quiet, just the two of us meal with croissants, brie, sliced turkey from whole foods and home-made cranberry sauce.

    Several days later, we had a lovely array of left-overs from our landlady’s family gathering (turkey, brussell sprouts with bacon, stuffing, more of my gravy (mushroom with green onions), cauliflower souffle, turkey and ham slices.

    In between, we of course snacked on the food at hand = turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, lol. Tonight, we had an extra special version of last night’s meal. Hubby made a version of the turkey, stuffing, potatoes with homemade gravy while I had a large salad of mixed spring greens, turkey (I’ve lost count of the number of meals that involved turkey, lol), shaved romano and a mixture of salad dressings. Later, there will be coffee and Godiva heart shaped biscuits with a kiss of dark chocolate in the middle.

    Your wonderful food essays have inspired me to try and describe my eating habits; but I don’t have that special, secret ingredient that makes your writing so wonderfully evocative, heart-felt, and a joy to read.

    I’m thankful that I met you; and I’d be truly thankful if we can remain friends.

    My computer has been acting up all day — sorry that you have the same comment from me twice. Not in the thankful for category, lol.

  7. I don’t have any leftovers either. We are doing Thanksgiving on Sunday. BUT….I have no oven. I found out about two weeks ago that the oven didn’t work, and of course when the repairman came he said it would cost $300.00 to fix. So, I am just going to buy a new oven. SO, in the mean time I am cooking a turkey breast in a crockpot on Sunday. I hope it works.
