0 Thanksgiving leftovers...tired of Turkey Sandwiches?

I love having turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving. Sometimes I make them with just butter, salt and turkey, other times I add mayo, wasabi mayo, maybe some stuffing, and even cranberry sauce – but how many sandwiches can you eat? Or, how much meat do you have leftover? And if you're like me and most of my friends & family you also don't eat dark meat. So, just what do you do with the dark meat and the other stuff?

Well, I make Turkey Pot Pie which uses nearly everything leftover and then I boil the bones up and make Turkey Soup. After all, this turkey gave it's life for us, so I think that we should eat as much of it as possible. Pot pie and soup are also a great way to “hide” dark meat, I usually use about 2/3 white and 1/3 dark in the pot pie and about 2/3 dark and 1/3 white in the soup. This year I had almost no white meat left, so I also made a batch of dog food with the excess dark meat.

Now, I don't really have a recipe for either of these so you'll have to bear with me. I really do throw most of my leftovers into the pot pie – but I don't know what you cook for Thanksgiving dinner so I'll try to give you an idea of what goes into mine and you can try putting your leftovers in yours – taste it and tell me all about it.

Some things that I've put into the pot pie are: turkey, stuffing, creamed onions, carrots, peas, gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli, pickled red cabbage and asparagus. I will say right now – this is not a healthy meal, but it is certainly delicious. Ok, here's an attempt at a recipe...

Turkey Pot Pie
2 times pie crust recipe*
4-6 c turkey cut into bite size pieces
1- ½ c gravy
2 carrots, sliced thin or 1 c carrots
½ c onions sliced thin or creamed onions
1-2 c green bean casserole
1 c stuffing
1 c evaporated milk or cream
1-2 Tbl butter
1 c water

In a large pot combine turkey, gravy, carrots, onions, green bean casserole, stuffing, milk, butter and water. Heat over a medium flame, stirring occasionally – the consistency should be fairly thick, if it's not then make a slurry with about half a cup water and a heaping tablespoon flour and add it to the mixture, simmer until it thickens. Line a 13x16x3 roasting pan with the pie crust, pour contents into pan. Cover with the remainder of the crust and bake at 425 degrees for about an hour.

Now, I've used leftover mashed potatoes in the mixture, and I've also used them on top – kind of like a Shepherd's Pie.  You also don't have to make a pie this large - you can make smaller ones in regular pie plates or in ramekins - you can even freeze them before they're baked and cook them later – so get creative.

Pie Crust Recipe – *double this recipe for a 13x16x3 pot pie
1 1/3 c flour
½ tsp salt
½ c vegetable shortening
3 Tbl water

Sift flour before measuring. Combine flour & salt. Cut in shortening (you can use a pastry cutter if you have one, but a fork works just as well). Sprinkle with water. Work into dough. Using a rolling pin roll out to a thin crust.

I'm not sure how many people this serves – I'm sure that it should serve at least 8 people, but I don't think I've ever gotten that many servings out of it because everyone likes it so much.

The ingredients in the turkey soup don't change much from year to year, but of course the quantity of turkey does – just try to keep it all in proportion, or at least the way you like your soup. Pick as much meat off of the bones as you can – I usually throw the legs in whole, it's not worth the effort to pick the meat off of them until after they're boiled. Also, if you're like me and you don't eat the skin – throw that into the pot too, it will help flavor the broth.

Turkey Soup
2-4 c turkey
1 c celery, diced
1 c carrots, sliced or diced
¼ c onion, chopped
½ c green beans (optional)
½ c stuffing (optional)
¾ c barley
2 tsp salt
½ tsp poultry seasoning
1-2 bay leaves
pepper, to taste

Put the turkey carcass (and skin) into a very large pot, cover with water, boil for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Remove bones, set aside to cool, remove skin and discard. While the bones are cooling, add remaining ingredients to the pot and simmer. After the bones have cooled, pick off what meat you can (only what looks appetizing, if it looks tough or grizzly throw it away), discard bones. Add this meat to your soup, cook until the carrots are tender – serve hot.

Good luck and remember these are just guidelines – get creative and enjoy yourself.

0 Home made cranberry sauce vs Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce

Well, I had hoped to do a lot more Thanksgiving recipes, however since I got behind schedule when I moved and didn't get articles written every 2-3 days this will be the last of the Thanksgiving recipes this year.  But I will continue to do other “Holiday” recipes throughout the rest of this year.

If you haven't made or eaten homemade cranberry sauce, you don't know what you're missing!  It has so much more flavor and since you can adjust the sugar you can make it as tart or as sweet as you like. I prefer a more tart flavor, but realize that most people like a more sweet sauce – this recipe to me has an in between sweetness – if you like a more tart taste, start with ¾ cup sugar and taste it, adding sugar as you go. If you like it sweet, start with 1 cup and add more a ¼ cup at a time.

Now I also like a sauce with whole berries in it. So, I withhold about a cup of berries – the recipe calls for withholding a ½ cup of berries. Again, adjust this as you like it. If you like a less berry texture, put all the berries in at the same time – they will almost all burst and it well end up more “saucy”.

If you want to get more fancy – you can add chopped pecans or walnuts to this recipe too. I've done it in the past and it is good – but I prefer it without the nuts.

Home made cranberry sauce
1 12 oz bag cranberries, withhold ½ cup
1 c sugar
1/3 c water or orange juice
½ c chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1-2 strips of orange zest (optional)
½ tsp cinnamon (optional)
¼ tsp nutmeg (optional)

Empty most of the bag of cranberries into med size pot. Add water, sugar, spices, nuts and zest. Stir to blend, bring to boil over med-high heat until most of the cranberries burst, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add the remainder of the cranberries, cook another 5-10 minutes. Cool to room temperature and serve.

Price for plain home made cranberry sauce (no spice or nuts): 8 servings/$3.16 or .40 cents per serving
Price for Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce: 6 servings/$2.25 or .38 cents per serving

Ingredients for home made cranberry sauce: cranberries, sugar, water
Ingredients for Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce: cranberries, high fructose corn syrup, water, corn syrup

Preparation time for home made: About 15-20 minutes
Preparation time for Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce: 1 minute to open can and pour

O.k., it costs slightly more to make home made, by about .02 cents per serving and takes you about an extra 15 minutes. But once you make it, you'll never go back to canned, and no HFCS...

This cake is to provide a lot of people from around the world, and they all praised it, is that it is addicted to the taste.

I have an interesting story you want to introduce this cake.

One day, I was preparing for Aptos wedding in our future Mission Santa Cruz, California, during his stay with his parents, household cleaning and I'm helping the mother's husband. While she was busy making something for dinner, I had finished the housework. She noticed that we need to make quick trips to the grocery store for some ingredients for dinner that night. As she was leaving the house, she told me "You are the only way you can trust for Susie to take care of on my cake, remove the cake when the timer goes off Please. "

My father never seemed to crack a smile and was very intimidating to me at the time, his best friend (and brother-in-law) was sitting on the kitchen table talking with Uncle Jack. What I had to quit what I was waiting to fall by a timer. I get a hot pad, open the oven door, the timer rang. I saw there a tube cake pan that looks like a angel food cake. I asked my father where you can quickly find the empty Coke bottle. He looked at me confused I asked what you need a bottle of cola? (They are angel food cake while the standard for cool) I said "it must be reversed and angel food cake in the oven there," he said. So he beckoned me towards the pantry.

In the pantry, I'm very old, and found a dusty bottle of cola. So I grabbed it and wash it immediately invert the cake heavy on the neck of the bottle. His mother is going to be my husband now was a great cook, she is his mother so I can try that might make an angel food cake could not just were reported. This cake, "weight" I'm an angel food cake from it and I definitely think not! Then I got my fiance and his brother began to leave the kitchen to go to see what was doing in the game room.

I looked around and a big ear to ear "bunny rabbit smile and laugh," his face like a cake to look in my father and Uncle Jack, the bottle is reduced all over the floor and counters, were divided. Then I heard running feet. They are husband and his brother picked up my future rest on the floor, so I sampled a piece of cake fell on the counter, looked with horror.

"Oh my god," I cried! We have spoiled put it back together! No, I'm making a new one! "The type of angel food cake, what is it?" It was not an angel food cake - far away from there! It was this treasured recipe of his grandmother's pound cake! Boy! Shame I've ever had! "

However, the "pound cake incident" had one good thing about. It broke the ice and really my father's law. It's just me that he "test me" and I was trying to come up with a way see how rough and take from him. He was a softy deep down really.

0 Home made stuffing vs Stove Top Stuffing

I can't imagine Thanksgiving without stuffing. I've spent many years living in the south and have eaten a lot of cornbread stuffing, but still prefer my traditional “Yankee” white-bread stuffing. It's another thing that is incredibly easy to make – although it will probably set you back a little more than a single box of Stove Top, it also tastes a whole lot better and serves more people.

This is my mother's recipe, with a small twist, I like mushrooms and usually add about half of a 8 oz package to my stuffing. Sometimes I also take some of the “innards” or giblets, cook them up in a small pot with water and cut them up into fine pieces and add them to the stuffing – but I only use the heart and neck meat – not the kidneys and liver, I give those to the dogs so they have a holiday treat too. If you boil the giblets – either to add to the stuffing or to feed your pets, you can use the liquid from this instead of buying broth for the stuffing.

I usually buy and open the loaf of bread about 3-4 days before to let it get stale, if you don't do this then place bread on a cookie sheet in a 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until it's dry but not browned/toasted. I take about half of the loaf and trim the crust off, I also throw away the heels – you don't have to do this, it is a little wasteful but I just like the texture better.

Home made stuffing
½ c butter
2 c celery, chopped
1 lg onion, chopped
4 oz mushrooms, chopped (optional)
1 loaf cheap white bread, torn into small pieces or cut into cubes
½ – 1 c chicken, turkey or vegetable broth
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp poultry seasoning
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Melt the butter in a large skillet over med heat. Add the celery, onions and mushrooms, saute, add seasonings, saute until the onions are transparent. Put the bread into a large bowl, pour in the cooked onion/celery mixture, mix together. Mix in the egg, add broth a little at a time – use only enough to make the mixture moist, so that it holds together, but not so much that it's like a dough. Either stuff the turkey with the mixture and proceed to roast your turkey or put it into a greased baking dish and bake for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees. I usually stuff the turkey and put the extra into a small casserole dish and bake it separately.


Price for home made stuffing: About $5.00 for the recipe/16 servings or .31 cents per serving
Price for Stove Top stuffing: $2.98 for a box/6 servings or about .50 cents per serving

Ingredients for home made stuffing: bread, butter, celery, onion, mushrooms, egg, broth, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning (parsley, rosemary, thyme)

Ingredients for Stove Top stuffing: Enriched wheat flour, high fructose corn syrup, dried onions, salt, partially hydrogenated soybean or cottonseed oil, hydrolyzed soy protein, turkey broth, yeast, dried celery, dried parsley, maltodextrin, spice, caramel color, sugar, turmeric, disodium guanylate, disodium inosinate, BHA, BHT, citric acid, and propyl gallate.

Preparation time for home made: About 15-20 minutes, plus baking time
Preparation time for Stove Top: 5 minutes

So, it's a little more than half the price to make it yourself. It will require about 20 minutes of your time to cut, saute and mix the ingredients. You will NOT be consuming HFCS, oils and chemicals that are not necessary.

0 Home made gravy vs Bottled Gravy & Dry Gravy Mix

It's the start of the holidays and I'll spend the rest of the year talking about different foods that we cook during the holiday season. I'm starting with gravy, primarily because it's one of those things that people waste a lot of money on, kind of like the rubs, marinades and premixed spices. Now, don't get me wrong gravy is far from healthy, whether it's from a mix or from scratch. However, I still believe making it from scratch is better for you, it's certainly cheaper, its very simple and easy to make. Advertisers have convinced people that they can't make gravy and if they do make it from scratch, it will be lumpy. Well, in all the years I've been cooking, about 30 years, I've never made lumpy gravy and I don't think you will either.

The easiest gravy to make is when you have meat drippings but if you don't have drippings you can still make home made gravy.

Home made gravy
1 - 1 1/2 c water (depending on how much gravy you need)
meat drippings
1 Tbl flour
1-2 tsp corn or potato starch (if you've added extra water)
dash of salt and pepper

Mix the flour, starch (if you don't have the starch just increase the flour by a tablespoon), salt and pepper together. Put into a glass jar that you have a lid for. Add water, put lid on and shake. If you don't have a glass jar, use a 4 cup measuring cup and stir vigorously with a fork. *If you've roasted meat and the drippings are still in the roasting pan, remove meat, place the roasting pan on the top of the stove, over low to medium-low heat, add the flour mixture to the pan. Stir continually with the fork until well mixed, raise heat to medium to medium-high stirring continually, gravy should the bubbling. When well mixed and thickened, remove from heat and serve.

*If you don't have drippings it's a little more complicated. You want to put even amounts of butter and olive oil in a frying pan, about 2-3 Tbl of each. Add a little chopped onion, garlic and carrot (about 2 Tbl of the onions and carrots, 1-2 cloves of garlic) to the pan and saute until onions begin to brown. Strain vegetables from the pan and then proceed as above.

I like to add about ¼ cup of wine to my gravy too – add it before you put in the flour/water mixture, it will deglaze the pan, removing bits of burned meat, fat and veggies from the pan and it adds a nice flavor to your gravy. Try a dry white, like a chardonnay, with turkey or chicken, use a burgundy or merlot with pork or beef.


Price of home made gravy: about .08 cents, unless you add wine – then maybe .40 cents
Price of McCormicks dry gravy mix: $2.19
Price of Heinz Homestyle Gravy: $1.79

Ingredient in home made gravy: Water, meat drippings - fat (or butter and oil), flour, corn or potato starch, salt and pepper – presumably you've also flavored your meat with garlic, onion, parsley, etc.

Ingredients in McCormicks dry gravy mix: Flour, wheat starch, beef fat, hydrolyzed soy, wheat and corn protein, onion, caramel color, corn syrup solids, sodium caseinate, garlic, wheat protein, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate, extractives of paprika, yeast extract and citric acid

Ingredients in Heinz Homestyle Gravy: Beef stock, water, modified cornstarch, modified wheat flour, beef fat, butter, hydrolyzed soy protein, soy sauce, caramel color, whey powder, yeast extract, corn maltodextrin, sugar, dextrose, garlic powder, soy lecithin, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, onion powder, natural flavoring, cornstarch, black pepper, soybean oil, milk

Preparation time for home made gravy: About 5 minutes
Preparation time for McCormicks dry gravy mix: About 5 minutes
Preparation time for Heinz Homestyle Gravy: About 3-5 minutes

Ok, well it seems that they all take the same amount of time to make. Home made costs between $1.71 and $2.11 less to make. You can always add a little milk, as McCormick and Heinz have done if you want to. Anyway, you won't be consuming all of that salt, hidden salts (soy sauce and disodiums), sugar and hidden sugar (dextrose, maltodextrin, etc) that's in the mixes – you also won't be eating all of those chemicals either. Give it a try, it's really not that hard to do.

0 What grains and legumes are good for you?

What's most important about this list of grains and legumes is that you eat them “whole” not processed. That's why brown rice is good for you and white rice is just a starch with some vitamins. If you buy oats, buy old-fashioned rolled oats, not instant oats.
