Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.

So now what do you do with all that leftover turkey!

Here's V's suggestion:

Victoria's Leftover Turkey Shepherds Pie 

In the bottom of a casserole dish place thin turkey slices and stuffing then pour gravy over. 
On top add corn , then left over mashed potatoes, then left over mashed yams.

And mine?

We make sliced turkey and onion sandwiches.

It has to be buttered white bread, 

and you have to sprinkle salt on the turkey slices.

Not very healthy...but delicious!



  1. Oh J I think we would go with turkey sandwiches too. But with chunks of fresh granary bread (well buttered) and with cranberry sauce!

  2. are hilarious! I thought she was very glam!

  3. ha this is funny! John too! We don't have thanksgiving but at Xmas always a ham, and it seems to be leftovers for ages, ham on toast, in sandwiches, in fried rice, just a chunk on it's own cannibal style, then finally a pea & ham soup. Hope you had a great thanksgiving!

  4. Turkey hash: cubed turked, cubed cooked white potatoes and a white flour rue. Salt and pepper. Very simple but different. Not low calorie.

  5. Ohh, yum to both. Now I wish I had leftovers :))
    We had a small turkey for Thanksgiving. I like to have the really big one for Christmas...then we are into serious leftovers :)

  6. This year we were guests at my brother & SIL's home for Thanksgiving - so no leftovers. I'm thinking about making a turkey for Christmas - I do love the leftovers! :)
    Happy weekend to you & yours,

  7. I throw our Christmas turkey leftovers on a crisp baguette with butter lettuce leaves, cranberry sauce & sliced brie - yum. Love John's take on your new header image, I think she's hiding something very mysterious!

Go on...make my day...
