Turkey Day is upon us and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into the moist turkey, gorge myself on mashed potatoes and gravy, then fill the last few nooks in my belly with pumpkin pie.
Once the feast is over we munch on leftovers for a couple days before it gets to be a little monotonous. After a couple turkey sandwiches I would be happy to never see another turkey sandwich until the following Thanksgiving, or Christmas at least.
The other thing that happens after the hours spent in the kitchen cooking, baking, stirring, whipping I want to sit. For a looooong time. Usually I’m looking for quick and easy meals following the big day and using up what leftovers I have on hand.
That’s where the Tex Mex Turkey Pot Pie comes in to play. It takes a while to bake but you can have it on the table in 30 minutes. It’s just a matter of mixing it all together then sticking it in the oven. Now that’s my kind of meal.
Some other ideas for leftovers…
