Okay, how about the week after? There was a package of smoked salmon and a wonderful head of golden cauliflower that I didn't have time to deal with during the holidays...they are about to become a wonderful meal for me and me only!!

Yum! I love smoked salmon and cauliflower, but I've never had them together.

What did you make from them, Lee?

It's leftover time.  Reheated turkey is usually a sad affair, and I don't care for the traditional turkey sandwich. 

Of course, I made turkey soup on Thursday night with the carcass and lots of veggies and herbs (I like to stud an onion with a couple of cloves).  I like to strain it and just eat it plain with chopped parsley; it's heaven on a cold day. 

Tonight, I decided to make a turkey pot pie.  So easy.  Just shred the turkey.  Sauté leeks, shallots, celery, carrots and mushrooms in butter and add some herbs.  Make a sauce velouté (it's just a béchamel made with turkey stock instead of milk).  Assemble and top with frozen puff pastry.  I can't wait!

I also had too much bread for stuffing, so I made a raspberry pecan bread pudding.  I soaked the old bread cubes in milk, added eggs beaten with sugar and vanilla, cinnamon and allspice.  Toss together, spread in a buttered dish and stud the top with chopped pecans and raspberries (they were on sale today--two for $3!).  Of course, you must serve this with bourbon sauce!

Yum! I'm taking the Pioneer Woman's suggestions and making Turkey Tetzrazini and Turkey Spring Rolls.

That's the downside of being a guest. It helps to put some tupperware in your car and casually mention that you have it as the dinner concludes.

Our cousin always used to send my dad and me home from Thanksgiving with enough leftovers for two dinners apiece.  :-\

I had enough left over from my own patched-together Thanksgiving dinner for two more dinners. I'm planning to have turkey, stuffing, and gravy for supper this Friday.  :)

Well, my mom always gives out left overs.  However, this year she gave them all to my sister-in-law's brother.  He's not in the best place financially, so I think it made mom feel better to give him all the food, so she knows he's eaten.

Friend, I'm assuming you bake the pudding after putting it in a buttered dish and before studding it with the pecans and raspberries. Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm getting ready to make this dish in the next day or two!

I'm also making sweet potato ravioli with leftover yams and won ton wrappers. It's a recipe from the Pioneer Woman: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2014/11/pumpkin-ravioli/
