Yes, it's true. Just a strange time for us I guess: our usual partners in crime spent the holiday back at their home states, Princess is in California visiting her fiance's father who has been there for a year receiving chemo treatments, my dad has the flu and the boy and his girlfriend are vegetarian and doing something Veggie Like. And then I got the text message from my best friend in Bethany Beach that her mom was admitted to Hospice End Stage (which has just broken my heart for both her and her mom) ... which left me and Hubby ... WHO, by the way, is wearing a boot and waiting on x ray results on his foot ... we are all hoping that he hasn't totally annihilated his tendon and require surgery although the doctor is pretty concerned about it 😒 ... to the point where he is NOT allowed to use the elliptical anymore, but instead, give the rowing machine a shot ... Alrighty then!
So. With that said, we laid low. Das Boot gets in the way. It's hot. It's itchy. It makes Hubby screw around a little too much which I'm sure would not be amusing to anyone in the medical field (it's all fun and games til someone gets hurt) ... I sat there at the table Thursday morning after breakfast and looked at Hubby and asked where the magical Honey Baked Ham or Turkey was ... surely it's making an appearance. NOPE.
So, with that being said, I'm going to torment myself with a little Turkey Round Up ... even though, I'll be the first to admit: I am NOT a fan of all the Thanksgiving foods ... fried turkey and mashed potatoes are it for me! But, STILL ... it's the tradition!
Thank me later for these four recreation of leftovers, and try not to feel sorry for me in the meantime 👧
Cobb Salad (which traditionally, is made with Turkey!)
Turkey Cabbage Salad with Almond Butter Dressing
Turkey Lettuce Wraps (obviously, skip the whole COOKING part of this turkey and just chop up real fine using this cool little gadget)
Hot Browns (the PERFECT use for leftover turkey!)
And if you really ARE a purist, by all means, grab yourself two slices of bread, slather on some cranberry sauce, turkey slices, stuffing and call it a day!
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
