Good looking meal, kgirl.

My brother wasn't able to join us on Thanksgiving day, so today we had the rest of the turkey leftovers with all the sides, plus more sides. We ate around 2, so that was today's dinner. It was nice having him here.

There were enough leftovers from the leftovers for one more meal, so I tupperwared them up and sent them home with him. I'm officially done - at this point I don't want to see poultry or potatoes on my plate for a looooong time.

I need fruit, veggies, and meatless meals for the next couple of weeks!

I might have to cook us up a turkey dinner soon..I missed having leftovers.

Tonight I browned up some brined boneless pork chops, and finished them in a pan sauce of sliced Crimini mushrooms, browned in butter, deglazed with Maderia and added a little chicky broth, and heavy cream, a few grinds of lemon pepper and ground Porchini powder. Dang, I have to remember that one!
Oven roasted seasoned fresh asparagus finished it off with a baked spud for my man.

I made a beef meatloaf and served it with brown rice and a tossed salad. We were obviously having a vegi deficit, since both of us started with the salad. It was a large salad and it's all gone.

Saturday we used up some left over turkey and the rest of the sides from T-Day. Yesterday, half of the left over turkey went into a soup with carrots, onions, potatoes, corn and dried, three cheese tortelini. The rest of the turkey is slated for chilaquiles.

I have to try this. Sounds delicious.

Smothered steak. Here in the South, we add thinly sliced onions to the gravy

I like thinly sliced onions. As long as they aren't over powering the taste of the steak.

Oh no, they enhance the gravy. After browning the meat, set it aside on a plate, then brown the onions. Make the gravy and add the meat back to the pan, spooning some gravy and onions on top. Simmer till done. Good stuff
