Stuff and Nonsense: Turkey Every Day


Turkey Every Day

I roasted a turkey last Sunday and, in a fit of optimism combined with weak math skills, estimated we would be out of turkey by Wednesday. We actually ran out of turkey on Saturday, after I fed the last six ounces to the cats because there was simply no way we could stomach any more turkey and I wasn't about to add it to the already stuffed freezer. (Anyway, the cats are crazed by the unending cold and ice and clearly needed a little extra something from the humans).

So I started with a roasted fourteen-pound turkey:

Roast Turkey
Rubbed well with olive oil, seasoned with sea salt, pepper, and Bell's Seasoning.

And that became Sunday supper:

Sunday Dinner
With gravy, tarted-up instant mashed potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, and parslied carrots.

And then pizza:

Turkey Pizza
Ready-made pizza crust, turkey, pizza sauce, red onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, seasonings, "pizza" cheese blend.

And soup:

Leftover Turkey Soup
Mafalda, turkey, broth, dill, salt, black pepper, bay, garlic, red onion, carrots, celery, corn, peas.

And salad:

Leftover Turkey Salad
Turkey, red onion, bell peppers, guacamole, romaine, lime juice, black pepper.

And another soup that I forgot to snap a photo of before we gobbled it all up and many, many sandwiches. And now we are positively done with roast turkey for quite a long time to come!
