Are you ready for the turkey? The bird and the other kind, you know what I mean. Humor early in the writing, so it is out of the way.
I have been invited to join a friend and her family for dinner, so I am bringing a salad. I am fortunate enough that I don’t have to cook the whole enchillada. No leftovers, though. So it is back to tuna on Friday. It is good for you. Omega 3. At this stage in life, those little known facts become very important. You become a walking encyclopedia of things that are good for you. Uhummm.
But…tomorrow is Thanksgiving and my stomach is already anticipating the turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, gravy, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, collard greens and etc., etc. , plus of course, the pumkin pie with whipped cream.
I am already feeling stuffed. But tomorrow is a new day with high expectations of eating everything and anything within my sight.
Let’s remember the real reason of this holiday….We are so blessed and very thankful for our families, friends, and the soldiers away from their families making a big sacrifice.
Thank you for reading my humble blog, but most of all, for being my friend.
Your Happy Contessa

Right after Thanksgiving is a great time to buy a discounted turkey. You can cook whole or cut up and freeze some. When done, you can make Turkey soup. I do this by boiling the turkey carcass and then skimming off the fat. I go to the produce store and buy one of everything and chop up and add to the turkey stock (and some meat too). Add a starch. I rotate pasta, rice or potatoes. This can also be frozen after you get tired of it in a few days.
What a great idea! I will do just that. I am going around midnight to get the best price 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving to you and Nancy, my dear friends.
