Leftover Leftovers


Just after New Year’s Day, our local grocery store decided to rid themselves of their premium frozen turkeys for $.79 a pound.  A 21-pounder somehow managed to come home with me, and thus we have had myriad meals on hand quite easily.

It’s getting down to the end of it now, but there are still several quarts of the most fabulous bone broth available for soups.  There was some angel hair left from a previous meal, so I chopped up some veggies (celery, onions, mushrooms, green and red peppers, and carrots) and quickly sautéed them, added the broth and some big chunks of turkey.  No seasonings were required, but we each sprinkled on a little Lawry’s Seasoned Pepper at the table.  I thickened it just slightly so it had a bit of body.  Half of it disappeared in a trice with the sourdough bread and the veggie plate shown.

Anticipation is high for the devouring of the rest of it tomorrow!  ;->

  1. I find things in my pantry that I have no idea how they got there. Things I wouldn’t typically buy. Some mischievous entity must follow me through the grocery store and toss things into my cart when I’m not looking.

    You gotta watch those turkeys! They can be mighty sneaky!
