Sunday After Thanksgiving- No Turkey, Please!



We caught a decent amount of snow today, so grocery shopping will be tomorrow's activity! Had enough ingredients to make a home made white bread, that would go well with spaghetti, covered in a ground beef basil-tomato sauce... I don't know about you, but after a feast day like Thanksgiving, all I want is a simple meal- as far away from leftovers as I can get! I know- you folks watch me work with leftovers a lot, but not today! This stuff was simple and it did hit the spot... I always grate my own Parmesan and Romano for a cheese topping that is long on flavor, but actually short on volume. The good stuff goes further- really! The photo of my redneck dinnerware(paper plate!)is because my son now has to work all day on Sundays alone, and can't take a break to come over for the meal.. We deliver!
Tomorrows menu will feature turkey wild rice soup, with some of that home made bread in the form of a toasted cheese sandwich. Also have to make a cheesecake- flavor not decided yet.... have a good week!

No turkey left overs this week, since I left it in the step mom's fridge this afternoon. Spicy Tomato Okra soup tonight for me, minus a blog :)

I could sure go for a toasted cheese on that fantastic looking bread - I swear I caught a warm yeasty whiff

Chef- sounds delightful! I will eat soup at a homeless shelter- if it's any good!
DogB- I decided on the soup, but now I have to pick out a cheese... when you love them all, this is tough!

Just telling it like it is said...

All I got to say is there is a lot of turkey where I live except it is not food:)

darngirl- Must try different bars! You are too cute, and do not have to settle for a turkey!

TavoLini said...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

That snow was crazy--I thought we would be stuck in Detroit for weeks :)

Odat said...

For some reason, I always want Chinese food the day after Thanksgiving.......(for once I have no leftovers...went to a good friend's house)...but I do have a turkey in the freezer that I'm intending on cooking soon.....
Peace

Pink- Leftovers were too much this year!
Tavolini- I've been stuck here for decades... :)
Odat- I actually cook turkey about 4 times a year- I like the stuff!
Marmy- I'm getting the hang of bread coming out the way it's supposed to! Home made bread always toasts so well...

Finn said...

And my care package is where?

buffalodick said...

Finn- You would be fun to cook for!

Jennybean said...

That looks great! Found you by way of MM...

Akelamalu said...

You're right homemade bread does toast well, lovely with heaps of butter and a nice cup of tea. :)

Lulda Casadaga said...

BD: Looks like you had a delightful Turkey day. We went to a friends house to eat and she was in a weird mood, needless to say we didn't get the usual care package sent home with us...so no leftovers at my place. :(

But darlin hubby went out and bought a ham and cooked it on Sunday...yummy... and he also made some green split pea soup...to die for...and I never used to like that soup when I was a kid! Go Figure!!

Look forward to your turkey soup receipe...I may just have to buy me a turkey for this weekend!

Chef E said...

Buff- I saved a smoke trout for you, so come on over!

Kayla said...

Hi Buff!
I can always get my food-gasm right here. I love every kind of cheese. I like to melt Saga cheese on bread and have a side of more Saga cheese :-)

My turkey was good, but enough is enough. I had "poor man's spaghetti" which is sauteed tomatoes, mushrooms, onion and spices over noodles.
Like the name? haha

Mona said...

somebody said cheese cake?!

I forgot what the rest of the post was about!

Helene (aka Kate) said...

the bread looks great! I love grilled cheese with tomato!

I did the turkey thing until Sat. After that I just couldnt look at it! I boiled a bit for the dogs then froze some in gravy for a pot pie later in the month! Thankfully we do Fish for Xmas Eve and beef on Xmas day! lol

buffalodick said...

Jennybean- Welcome to the blog!
Ake- Bread was so good, we just had that and the turkey rice soup last night..
Lulda- Done with the turkey, but we also have a big hunk of ham to work with!
ChefE-Smoked trout sounds great right now...
Kayla- Good to hear from you! I think everyone has seen enough turkey for a while!
Mona- I'll probably make that cheesecake today!
kate- Gotta start planning our Christmas time menu....Ribs for sure on Christmas Eve!

Chef E said...

Did I hear Ribs...set a place for me and I like a saucy batch please :) (and that smile is saucy)

buffalodick said...

ChefE- I may market my sauce some day! I could be a better cook, but I have a nice touch with sauces...

Anette said...

Does your son know how lucky he is, getting lovely home made food delivered!? I can totally understand your craving for something simple after such a turkey feast!

Anndi said...

I'm a fiend when it comes to bread and that bread looks YUMMY!

I know what you means about the leftovers from Thanksgiving. It being just the two of us means leftover turkey for a while.

How nice of you to take care of him when he has to work. Never stop being a papa bear ;).

Urban Vegan said...

Nothing like homemade bread and spaghetti. Makes the house smell wonderful, too. Bring on the carbs, I say!

buffalodick said...

Anette- He actually does appreciate it! I guess your're a parent for life...
anndi- I think we're all on turkey overload! Momma bear does the caring, I do the cooking!
UrbanV- Easy for you to say... what do you weigh? Looks like about 100 and nothin'... :) But it sure looks good!

Beth said...

mmmmm, toasted cheese on that bread would be fabulous!!!!!

buffalodick said...

Beth, truth be told, with a warm bowl of soup, good bread, good cheese, and a hut with a warm fire... that's livin'...
