Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas

I don't know about you but I'm getting anxious for "Thanksgiving" to get here.  Just thinking about turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and cranberry relish makes me hungry.  We're all set for the big day.

Thanksgiving is a special holiday for many people.  In a way it is like any other holiday around the world.  They come with their special foods. Foods that you may not make often because they require pricey ingredients or the foods take a little more work.  The foods are ones that you look forward to having because they are special to you and/or family.  The recipes last week and this week are hear to help you for those special holidays.

After the big dinner is over there is usually a lot of leftover foods.  Many may just re-heat some of this food for another meal.  Some may just want to make turkey sandwiches with that leftover turkey.  But many will want to do something special with those leftovers.

Last year I gave you several options on what you could do.  They're still available and handy because of my "Recipe Page."  One of them was for Turkey Soup.  It used the carcass of the turkey to help build flavor in the soup.  There was also My Favorite Turkey Sandwich which included using some of the stuffing on the sandwich.  Then there were the two casserole type dishes of Turkey Tetrazzini and

Turkey (Chicken) Pot Pie.

For this year I have a couple of dishes that will help with leftover turkey again.  Tomorrow's recipe is for "Turkey Cobbler Casserole" and is only for 4 servings but can easily be doubled.  On Thursday the recipe is for "Creamy Turkey Fettuccine" and it's another easy dish to make.  I hope you will enjoy trying these recipes on family and friends.  After all that is what "Thanksgiving" is all about.

So "Happy Thanksgiving" to everyone in the good old USA.  For all of you from around the world "Best Wishes" and I hope you can enjoy these or other dishes with your family and friends.

Lastly, a heads up for everyone looking for "Part Four of Italian Cooking."  Because of the different holidays from "Thanksgiving" through the "New Year," part four won't be until the first week of January.  Between now and then I'll be covering holiday sweets, special meals and some stuff to celebrate the new year.

Again, thank you for reading my food blog and continue to spread the word.  "Happy Cooking!"
