Left Over Turkey…

It’s always the same guys…

Hi Guys,

First of all I would like to wish my best friend, Paul a Very Happy Birthday and add I am looking forward to some Karaoke fun later today!

Well, yes, it always happens we are faced with the decision of what to do with the Turkey leftovers, although this year there wasn’t too much left, if I am honest, but that was due to the house full of folks we had here when it came out of the oven.

Usually I end up making a casserole, or a curry from the remaining Turkey…and you can always guarantee on that day there will be someone knocking on the door to join us in eating it all.

I must admit that after the turkey sandwiches sequences are over I will sometimes slice some of the meat into strips and add it to some lightly sautéed onions, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, which I will lightly stir fry, adding some pepper, chillies and spices too for good measure. Served with a portion of rice it is a great little supper for those cold winter evenings in by the fire.

Nowadays though, Bentley and our other little furry friends have their share too, which helps to cut down on the amount of leftovers.

Boiling the bones can make excellent stock too, once the contents of the pan are finely strained.

The fun thing about this season though is paying family and friends a visit. The first thing they ask is do you want a mince pie, closely followed by, would you like a turkey sandwich? Maybe we should all club together and buy turkeys between us. That way we may not have to eat as much of it where ever we go.

I would just like to add a Happy 87th Birthday to Stan (The Man) Lee on his birthday today. If you catch this humble Blog, Stan, have a great time!!!

Well it’s another short Blog today, as the holiday season continues on its merry way.

Until next time have fun!
