Today I'm thankful for this season of Advent. My family and I began yesterday and had a great time together. I also am thankful to have turned all our leftover holiday food into new meals. From the turkey I made: turkey casserole (used leftover meat, stuffing, green bean casserole, and homemade cranberry sauce), and a turkey salad for sandwiches (made w/meat, boiled eggs, celery, onion, dried cranberries, walnuts, curry powder, Dijon mustard, and mayo). Tomorrow I'll be making bone broth with the turkey carcass. From leftover ham I made: Crockpot Green Beans with Onion and Potatoes, ham sandwiches for lunch, and tomorrow I'm using the last of it to make some Corn and Ham Chowder for lunch. I put the ham bone in the freezer the other day to make beans with next week. Although Thanksgiving has passed it doesn't mean we should stop looking for reasons to be thankful. So what are you thankful for?
