new look

I couldn't take the pink any longer. I love cooking and saw this cute design and couldn't resist.

What's cooking?

So far the leftovers have morphed into turkey croquettes. I used turkey and the left over wild mushroom and cornbread stuffing. Ground those together with some egg and cream and formed them into patties. A little breading and I fried them up and served them with gravy. Yum! Today I tackle the turkey soup. The kids have all been asking for the soup. It's really easy. I just simmer the carcass for hours. I strain the broth for the soup. Pick through the bones and add the meat back. I chop up carrots, celery, parsnips, onion, potato and sweet potato and anything else I can chop along with a few herbs and let simmer. For dinner tomorrow I'm thinking turkey alfredo lasagna with spinach and feta.

Last night I went to a poetry reading of a friend. It was wonderful. She had a friend host it with tea and cookies. The cookies were out of this world. I asked for recipes. She is going to e-mail me. But, two of the recipes come from The Spice House. My favorite was the curry and cardamom cookie and you can find it on there website.

I got lost after "it's simple.." I'm really impressed. My family won't let me do anything with left overs. They want to recreate a Thanksgiving plate over and over. It's pretty much gone now...:)
