I'm not sure what to call it. It's sort of a little shepherd's pie/turkey pot pie combination

I'm going to use some leftover turkey (it's been frozen) and gravy to make a pot pie filling and top it with leftover stuffing (in place of mashed potatoes) and bake it until it's hot throughout.

We'll see if it passes the hungry SO test.

I just got a new piece of Parmesan Reggiano so its pasta with oil and garlic. Maybe pull some homemade fennel sausage out of the freezer and a tomato/cucumber salad. But, then again, things always change by the time I get finished in the kitchen....

I'm going to finish off the last of the hamburger vegetable soup from the freezer. Next time I go shopping I'm going to get everything I need and make another 15 quarts--it sure has been handy when I need something hot and fast.

Oops, forgot to post whats for dinner. I have to admit, I'm feeling a wee bit...icky today. I think perhaps I overindulged on the football food yesterday. So its a toss up...leftovers because I feel too icky to cook, or something fresh and light so I don't feel icky. Hmmm...must see how much energy I have.

Leftover tamale meatloaf fried slices. Then freeze the rest for another time. It came out extra yummy.

Not officially. I did it like I do my hamburger stew (which I believe is posted under stews), but I added a large bottle of Spicy Hot V-8 and 2 cartons of Swanson beef broth. Vegetables would be whatever you want, but mine was:

3 pounds ground beef, broken up and browned
coarsely chopped onions
garlic
thickly sliced carrots
potatoes (cut in large chunks, peels still on)
thickly sliced celery
coarsely chopped cabbage (Brussels sprouts would be good too)
corn
peas
green beans
mushrooms
couple large cans diced tomatoes
large bottle Spicy Hot V-8
couple cartons of Swanson beef broth
salt and pepper to taste

I didn't really measure anything--I used up the rest of the carrots (probably 8-10) and probably 6-8 good sized potatoes. I just kept adding whatever looked good, until the pot was full. Since it was diluted by the other things, the Spicy Hot V-8 didn't add a lot of spice, but that was ok since James can't handle anything too spicy with his acid reflux.

Not having turkey leftovers, I'm sad and so decided to treat us to Steamed Mussels in White Wine and Shallots and some crusty French bread. It's a recipe from Top Chef University! It smells fabulous.
