I’ve got Turkey Indigestion…
Despite the fact that our turkey was “only” 8 kg and that we had 20 ppl over for Thanksgiving dinner we still had a lot, and I mean A LOT, of turkey leftovers.
As usual with the carcass I made Turkey soup…I big pot of soup half of which hasn’t been used yet. On Friday, for lunch I made Turkey sandwich, and at dinner we ate turkey leftovers again with mashed potato and gravy. Saturday I talked my bf into getting pizza…thanks god! But yesterday I still had a plate full of turkey which I really didn’t wanna throw away so I made Tetrazzini…!
Now I understand why Americans make turkey only twice a year…because the rest of the time all they do is eating leftovers…..
I think I’ve had enough turkey for this year…I am Italian after all…
Ok, I realize that last statement doesn’t make any sense…just pretend I didn’t say anything.
