I just had two pieces of pie for breakfast.

The refrigerator is full of whipped potatos, turkey pieces, chicken pieces, cheese, more cheese and several pieces of cheese, also chips, crackers, three kinds of stuffing and some varieties of olives.

And pie.

If you don't get over here now there will be consequences.

Joe(not for you necessarily, but still.... .)Nation


So ThanksGiving is sort of an orgy of eating, Joe?

Certainly sounds like it!

Yum!

OK, just to do you a favour, I'll take some of those turkey pieces off your hands.
And some of the whipped potatoes.
Oh & some olives, too ....

A little more detail about the 3 types of stuffings, please, so I can choose with confidence! :wink:

Take 5 lbs. of potatoes and 2.5 lbs. of rutabaga. NOT TURNIP! Peel and dice the rutabaga for boiling just as you will do the potatoes. Add a couple tablespoons of sugar or splenda to the water with the rutabagas and start cooking those suckers just like you would the potatoes. Let that go on for about 20 or 30 minutes then cook the potatoes as usual while continuing the rutabagas cooking. when each are at mashing consistency mix 'em together... put the mixer to em, butter and salt to taste.... and this is what they eat in heaven when they want something special.

Like all the very best things... simple, uncomplicated and anyone can do it and enjoy it.

It's like well... you know.

I'd like a sandwich of white meat on whole wheat bread with a little home made boiled dressing and some sliced cucumber.

The problem with eating out is that you have no leftovers.

That's why I always cook whether we go out or not. Too many times I've gone out for a holiday dinner, returned to nothing and when I got hungry, all I could think about was the mounds of food I'd left behind. It left me feeling deprived.

Take last Thurday. We ate dinner around 5pm, my husband and I were home by 8 and around 10, I was hungry again. So I warmed up a two slices of the ham I baked earlier, along with a few yams and then sided it with potato salad and, well, yumyumyum. The next day, I had a hankering for something green and warmed up the turnip greens I'd made the day before.

It's a regular food fest. And I don't miss a beat if i can help it. But it's also why I'm kicking up my workout a notch, adding 5 more reps per and going for 10.

I'd thought of cooking for the leftovers, but wimped out and read a murder mystery instead.

Perhaps for my birthday....

NOT ON YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Let someone else do the cooking and provide you with leftovers.

Alas.

My family are far away and Mr. Noddy's family does not produce talented cooks. Engineers. Yes. Cooks? No.

Someday....

Funny you should ask as I am informed that the turnips at dinner were, in fact, rutabagas with just a little butter whipped to a fairtheewell.

I love rutabagas

Mr. Tea cuts up lean pork and rutabagas to make a stew type thing.

He adds maple syrup and it's wonderful.

Rutabagas roasted in an open fire are yummy.
