After a short day at work (well, 7.75 hours, not all that short) I came home with one task in mind: utilize leftovers. It was my mission and I chose to accept it.
Let the games begin!
Jen made some salads with pomegranate and feta cheese.
I worked on the turkey pot pie which I assembled with garlic (farm), onions, carrots (farm), turnips (farm), sage, cayenne, turkey gravy, turkey stock, potato (farm), and green beans (forgotten from Thanksgiving day). The finishing touch was my patented biscuit crust. Some people make actual pie crust for their pot pie. I refer to that type of pot pie as Inferior Pot Pie. Mine may not be traditional but it is far better.
The rainy and snowy evening was capped off wonderfully with hot pot pie for dinner. Jen's game-time decision to go out for dinner last night and eat at home tonight turned out to be a stroke of brilliance.
While we did have a lot of laundry to fold, the night still turned out well with The Return of the King playing on TNT, hot tea, the pitter-patter of rain on our grungy windowsill, and some pumpkin pie for dessert.
It looks like that is the end of our Thanksgiving leftovers. Next week we will start fresh, finishing up the small remainder of last Saturday's winter share pickup.
