I love holiday meals. They are a gift that keeps on giving. I usually don't each much at the actual meal. Getting it all to the table hot and ready is fine but when it's time for me to eat it just doesn't "wow" me. Everyone always says how wonderful it all tastes and I find myself thinking - "hunh?"
Later in the day, after everyone's gone home or off to visit other relatives it seems to taste better when I pick directly from the leftover containers in the fridge. The next day it seems to taste even better and then I make other meals (like the delicious turkey vegie soup that I made yesterday) from the left overs. I love to use leftover mashed potatoes, scallions and corn to make potato cakes. Add an egg and a little flour to bind it all together. Form patties and fry in a little bit of oil - the guys love them
Isn't this sweet baby doll a great leftover? I fell in love with her at a thrift/antique store on Wednesday and had to bring her home with me. I'm not sure that she's all that old, but I love her sweet face.
We're supposed to get a few inches of snow tomorrow - yeah! We've got nowhere to go, so it'll be nice to sit inside and watch it bathe the neighborhood. We've got another Christmas party on Sunday for Mr OP's family at my MIL's. Since she only lives 2 doors down we won't have to worry about the roads.
So tell me are you all loving your leftovers?
