Leftovers

Friday morning, this white truck was delivering groceries to restaurants on upper Forest Avenue. For me, Friday, after the turkey, was always a GREAT day. Why? I think I've told you this before. Thick, turkey breast sandwiches with lettuce and lots of mayo. Would it be sacrilegious to say that I really enjoy this MORE than a turkey dinner? Shhhh! Don't tell. Last night we took in the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at Monument Square and then strolled to Grace for a holiday libation. It was a mild evening for late November, very nice. Today, I will attempt to prepare my first turkey dinner ever. Ok, it's true. The jig is up. I will be assisted by a true, culinary genius in the kitchen. She will direct, and I'm sure help wipe away my tears from time to time. And tomorrow, if everything works out? Ah... leftovers!

  3. I love T-day leftovers. We already had our celebration back in October. I'm drooling thinking of a nice helping of stuffing right now. My grandmother used to make the mashed pots into a kind of fried potato cake for breakfast too. Those were yummy!

  4. I'm very confused by this photo. My eyes are not cooperating - can't figure out where the truck is - or where it begins and ends - or . .. oh, best go back to bed, I guess.

  8. I went to my nephew's house on Thanksgiving so I got to prepare my own turkey dinner last night for a good friend. It turned out pretty good although I liked my sister's stuffing better than mine. I'll be having that leftover turkey today! Yum!

  9. Lol... I like the leftovers best too, except my sandwich is turkey, mayo, cranberry sauce, and cold dressing.

  12. I always liked leftovers too. But for one day only. After that it was "got pizza?" or "burgers anyone?"

  13. Oh, I'm with you re: the leftover sandwiches. Try some cranberry sauce instead of mayo. That's the bad thing about being guests of others - no turkey sandwich the next day!
