Hi all! Amazing sounding (and looking!) post Christmas meals here.

Harry, the finished octopus dish looks pretty darn good, once I get past the little suction cup thingies...lol As always, I love your storytelling and step by step pics, and look forward to it.

salt and pepper, what a great looking venison dish. Looks really tender.

dawgluver, mayan tacos sound like something I would like - looks good!

pacanis...omgosh....that is one beauty of a roast!

I had a ham and provolone sandwich for dinner - other than a few pieces of ham left for omelettes or whatever, the leftovers are done. Yay!

I have actually never made soup from leftovers other than adding rice and pieces of chicken to chicken soup. I do love the idea of making soup from leftovers, but I need some instructions.
DH liked it; I couldn't taste it very well because I have some sensitivity in my mouth right now - part of why I haven't been feeling well the last several days.

Soup is the original leftover user-upper! ;-) Sure, I can rewrite and post the method.

Thanks Cheryl.

I don't think I've ever made soup that wasn't from leftovers

The fettuccine Alfredo was good. It agreed with Stirling. I used this recipe: Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe | Simply Recipes, the creamy version.

Hi, Harry...just been keepin' busy - got kind of caught up in the holidays what with 6 grandchildren and all - they keep me busy and feeling young!
That's a low price for your octos, for sure....and if they do taste like scallops then I would for sure like them - I love, love, love scallops. Still think the little suction cup thingies are weird, though. lol

Aaaargh....4:30 on Sunday AM is way too early to be up - gonna go back to bed.
