Thanksgiving has been over
at least a week or two,
but we're still all eating turkey,
turkey salad, turkey stew,
turkey puffs and turkey pudding,
turkey patties, turkey pies,
turkey bisque and turkey burgers,
turkey fritters, turkey fries.
For lunch our mother made us
turkey slices on a stick,
there'll be turkey tarts for supper,
all this turkey makes me sick.
For tomorrow she's preparing
turkey dumplings stuffed with peas,
oh I never thought I'd say this--
"Mother! No more turkey...PLEASE!"
-Jack Prelutsky, It's Thanksgiving, 1982
Last week we worked our way through the Thanksgiving leftovers. We had plenty of creamed peas and Phillip's mom used them as the base for a delicious turkey shepherd's pie.
And a turkey pot pie.
I made a big pot of turkey soup with dumplings and there's enough broth in the freezer for another pot of stew, but for now we are taking a break. :0)
All the pumpkin pie is long gone, but my sister, Amy opened an Etsy shop and sent me a box of Espresso Chocolate Chip Shortbread and Espresso Caramel Candies.
Be sure to stop by and drool over all her goodies!
We've had a very quiet weekend at home. Daisy is recovering from getting spayed and I've been doing some online Christmas shopping.
We have all of our decorations up, so I'll be sharing pictures this coming week!
