The Aftermath... Leftovers !
I purposely make a larger than needed turkey for two reasons; one- I send a large amount of leftovers home with the guests, and two; I like leftovers too!
Friday was Turkey Barley Soup, simple stuff! Chopped up white and dark turkey meat, trimmed, 2 qts. of turkey stock made from the bird, pearl barley, chopped onion,chopped celery, and chopped carrots, a touch of seasonings- all thrown in a slow cooker on low for 5 hrs. With dinner rolls, and some pumpkin pie, it makes a nice, simple meal!
Saturday, I made kind of a mini turkey and cheese sandwich, with cooked turkey, Havarti cheese, mayo, lettuce, with a slice of tomato on a dinner roll.. very simple and good! A cold sandwich can be superior to one heated or grilled sometimes...
Today will be Asian Sock-eye salmon, with the last of the bean casserole- but that's another post!
