A lot of companies in this state offer the employees a swap. You can have the day after Thanksgiving off and work Veterans day instead. Almost all go for the day after off deal. But in your profession, you just don't get those offers too often, if at all. Public Service workers give up a lot of family life. That is why my son is going into teaching and working in the ER only one day a week.

I'd be able to take off from work if the Gov't didn't have such strict deadlines on admit paperwork for Medicare. Someone has to be in the office at least every two days in order to hit the deadlines and since I'm the only one who lives in town...

I'm coveting your ham bone. What are you going to make with it?

You are a genius. That sounds so incredibly good.

Another great turkey idea, if no one has yet posted it, is to mince some of the cooked turkey, and combine it with some grated, smoked gouda. Use it to fill home made ravioli, and sauce with a turkey veloute, or a mornay sauce.

You could change that filling to turkey and spinach, or turkey and dressing, or turkey and sun-dried tomato, or, well, you get the idea.

Thinking about turkey, I bet it would be great on pizza. Hmmmm.

OH, I forgot. I have to have at least one turkey and dressing sandwich on whole grain bread, with both slices of bread smeared with Miracle Whip salad dressing, and the turkey seasoned with salt and pepper. It's a law of the universe.

I have Split Pea soup in mind, a good size batch I can divide and freeze. I also kept all the liquid cooked out of the ham...that should make a great base for some lentil soup.

Traveled for T-day so we didn't get any leftovers but my SIL did make a nice stew with turkey,barley and butternut squash. I came home and went to the store and bought 3 turkeys. I just have to make my own.

I like to make to make turkey mole enchiladas,soups and stews,curry and walnut turkey salad,open face sammies with gravy.

Sounds good. I need to make some too, but I'll have to use some turkey ham (Jenni-O) it's good enough, especially without a ham bone.

I need to get another fresh ham to cook, but first have to thin down the overstuffed freezer!

We had a small turkey and 7 people, so there wasn't as much left over as usual. After a few sandwiches, the rest went into a soup, with stock made using the carcass and wings.
