We go to my BIL's. He doesn't believe in sending home leftovers or care packages. That is OK ! Today I went to the store for "just a couple things". You know how it goes -- $60 later, I scored a fresh/ not injected half bone in tureky breast and a pkg of two bone-in thighs. Tossed the thighs in the freezer and will roast the turkey breast Friday / along with some squash, dressing/ cranberries and make gravy and some mashed potatoes. Then there will be Proper Leftovers. I might have to make some little pies for some dessert this coming weekend too. I bought cat treats for the little girls, so they will have T'sgiving tomorrow too
PLUS Turkey is one of the few people foods they get a taste of when we have leftovers.
My favorite cold turkey sandwich is made this way:
bottom slice bread, mayo, 1 piece crisp lettuce, avocado slices, turkey, dressing, cranberries, 1 more piece lettuce, more mayo on the top piece bread. The lettuce helps hold it all together. Variations allowed -- sometimes toast the bread, bacon slices. I will put sausage in the dressing, so no bacon. Best eaten with just the little light on in the kitchen, no not the refrigerator light, but that works.
