“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead.”
~AA Milne, when we were very young
NOTE: I am away at the moment helping my mother with her treatment for lung cancer. I have set up a few posts to post whilst I am away as a special surprise. Some are new and some are reposts of old favourites that you may have forgotten, or if you are a new reader may not even have seen. I'll be back at the end of May, but in the meantime . . . Enjoy!
PS - I will only have sporadic internet use, so if you ask a question and I don't get back to you . . . it's not that I don't want to. It just may take me a while.

I thought I would share a few of my favourite ways of using up leftover turkey today. I know I have a lot of American readers who will be wanting to know what to do with it all . . . and of course my Canadian and British readers will be dealing with leftover turkey after the annual Festive feast in just a few weeks time.
There's so much more to do with it than the annual turkey/cranberry and stuffing sandwich, as good as they are and it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving or Christmas without imbibing at least one of those after the main meal!
In truth I am probably even more fond of the leftovers than I am of the actual turkey dinner! Well, almost at any rate!
Here's a few taste tempting dishes to prepare that I am sure will help to insure that your turkey leftovers this year will be neither boring or tasteless!
Turkey Oven Bake - A tasty casserole which goes together quick as a wink, with rice, broccoli, turkey and a few other things. A real family pleaser!
Barbequed Turkey Pizza - Another favourite with a sauce base of cranberry barbeque sauce and a topping of Balsamic Caramelized Onions, cooked turkey and cheese of course! Who says leftovers have to be boring!
Turkey Cobb Salad - Chock full of the super foods, turkey, avocado, tomatoes . . . bacon and blue cheese, with a scrummy vinaigrette dressing!
Turkey Pot Pie - An annual favourite for many years!
Turkey and Stuffing Pie - This version is made with chicken, but you can very easily substitute the chicken with leftover turkey and stuffing from your holiday dinner!
