“…no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.”
― Julia Child, My Life in France
Thanksgiving dinner is synonymous with leftovers. I haven’t made a turkey dinner in several years. So, this year, I decided I was going to make a turkey and all the fixings. It was delicious…now, what to do with the leftovers…
Rule number one: always have several very big pots and pans.
Rule number two: try and use as many leftovers as possible. Experiment.
Rule number three: share with friends and neighbor’s because you couldn’t possibly eat all that food yourself. And, your freezer is probably as full as mine.
I boiled the remains of the turkey for three hours in a very large pot. Then, I carefully removed all the good meat and broth. There was enough to make two big pots. I chopped carrots, celery, potatoes, and onions. One pot I made soup and the other I made a creamy stew.
I rolled out some biscuits, buttered a muffin pan, filled with the stew, sprinkled with a little cheese, and topped with another thin layer of biscuit and bake. Oh boy! These were soooo yummy.
