this happens every few years. when you are the oldest of four girls who are all now married, there are times that your sisters go to spend a holiday with their *other* families. and i sort of enjoy the quiet holidays from time to time.
i started the day here, which is a really nice way to start Thanksgiving Day, especially when you don't have to go home and prepare a feast!
we had leftover turkey breast, and we struck upon the idea of skipping the feast altogether, and going right to the leftovers. (did you see that the Food Network did an entire show on leftovers?!?)
of course, we didn't have leftover "anything else." just the turkey. so i set about making some Thanksgiving dishes so that we would have the "leftovers."
(does that seem a little twisted to you? jack thought so. but, anyway...)
"turkey and green bean casserole" pot pies! (i didn't have puff pastry in the house. so... i made my own. i know!)
fried stuffing with cranberry pesto! (what is better than bread dredged in bread crumbs and fried to perfection?!? nothing, i tell you!)
all in all, a lovely, if not-so-traditional, day.
i am giving thanks for all of my wonderful blog friends today. thank YOU all for GIVING so much!
