The Leftover Thanksgiving

Finishing the last of all the leftovers from our thanksgiving and I am still counting my blessings.  I am thankful for my family, my girls, the hubby and friends that have become family.  My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the leftovers and the moments shared.


The Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich

The leftovers are serous business!  There is soup to be made and turkey bakes to be assembled, stocks to be simmered and sweet potatoes to reinvent.  But the sandwich…. The simple delicious , roll your eyes to the back of your head sandwich is what I am truly thankful for!  It’s an art, first you take your left over bun that you served at Thanksgiving Dinner.  First layer is the turkey; the next layer is the stuffing, then the mashed potatoes, topped with cranberry sauce.  Warm up gravy and dip the sandwich into that warm gravy with every wonderful bite!  Enjoy!!!

The turkey soup is almost as important.  It’s the ritual of sitting down and reflecting on the things that you are thankful for during this past thanksgiving.  I am truly blessed with the wonderful people in my life.  I am thankful for Leftovers!!!!  The art to turkey soup is, make a great stock, keep the soup simple, sprinkle pecorino romano cheese on top.  Last, get really good Italian crusty bread, for dipping.

Hope everyone had a blessed and thankful, Thanksgiving!
