Plus I have lots of good food to work with. Here is my non-anemic, very full, Thanksgiving plate. That was it though. I didn't have seconds of anything because I was quite full and of course dessert was waiting for us!
Yesterday I start to hear a little rustling in the kitchen so I came out to see what was going on and found this.....
That's right! The husband getting all creative with the leftovers! Such a proud moment! Although he wasn't too happy about the picture taking since he was still in his robe. So I spared him the full picture and you just get his arm to prove it was him.
He put a little aged cheddar on some ancient grain bread I bought with turkey and leftover cranberry salsa. We topped it with a little of this cranberry orange vinaigrette I made for some moisture and boy was it good!
Miles heated up some of the high protein garlic mashed potatoes and some spaghetti squash gratin that I am super glad I chose to make in spite of the fact that we had too much food. It was my favorite thing about Thanksgiving! Then I added a little fruit because my plate wasn't looking very colorful.
Last night for dinner Miles went to the cupboard and pulled out the whole wheat mini flat bread rounds I bought and forgot about. My intention was that we could make several different kinds of turkey sliders and I thought they would be fun for the kids.
We kept it simple to start with last night and just used a little cracked pepper mayo and deli mustard. I was going to put some lettuce on there but I figured it didn't really matter since I was eating a salad with it. Today I might get really creative and put some of that spaghetti squash on there but I also see a soup in our future because sandwiches do get old no matter how cute the little mini buns are.
Now I must go actually get something done today. Sigh. Laziness, it was nice knowing you for a day!
