Thanks to Sara at Sassy Suppers for picking this week’s project – Thanksgiving leftover recipes. I picked the turkey wrap (we could choose any project from the gallery of leftover ideas). I have to say I was pretty surprised that I liked it as much as I did. It was pretty simple – just mayo, vinegar and mustard mixed with turkey and rolled up with shredded carrot and lettuce in a tortilla. I would definitely make this again. It doesn’t quite top my favorite leftover sandwich which is just turkey with Miracle Whip and lettuce on potato bread.
I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! We had a 16 lb turkey (local, organic, pasture raised) and ALL of the turkey meat vanished yesterday. I made the turkey with Martha’s method (rubbing it with butter and covering it with cheesecloth soaked in butter). It was gorgeous and delicious. We had regular stuffing, cornbread stuffing,mashed potatoes, roasted carrot/parsnip/rutabaga and roasted Brussels sprouts, and of course, pumpkin pie. Needless to say I am nibbling carrot sticks this week to try to make up for it all.
Next week’s assignment can be found here. Don’t miss out – it’s cookies!
