We’re still working through Thanksgiving leftovers. That’s what I get for making a 19 pound turkey for four people. I’m really glad I turned the leftovers into some casseroles, but boy will I be happy when we’re finished with these leftovers!
While I probably won’t be cooking too much this week, I’ve been clipping all sorts of recipes in anticipation of finishing these casseroles. Here are a few of the recipes I’m looking forward to making soon!
Beef Stew: I made black bean and chicken soup a few weeks ago. It was such a satisfying lunch that now I’m on a soup kick. Though it hasn’t been too cold yet, I’m hoping that if I continue cooking as if it’s cold, the weather will eventually catch up.
White Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Blondies: Ok, I’m cheating a little bit here. My boss was looking for some cookie recipes to bring to a friend, and I passed this one on to her. She made the blondies this week, using peppermint kisses rather than the peppermint bark. She brought me one as a sample on Friday. They were delicious- buttery, pepperminty, and Christmasy.
Roast Shrimp with Carrot Couscous: Though I’m really happy with how I dealt with the leftover turkey, having three casseroles at the same time is a little heavy. The thought of a lighter meal like this is simply irresistible right now.
So many recipes to try!
