Steve smoked the turkey over hickory so the smell permeated the entire fowl, including the bones. As I boiled the bones for soup stock, the entire house filled with the smell of hickory smoke. (I was actually alarmed for a moment about what was on fire.) Our soup was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. with the added addition of hickory flavor.
Here's a few other things we enjoyed this week:
Sunday - gingerbread pancakes served with eggs and bacon
Monday - bean burritos topped with spicy salsa
Tuesday - shepherds' pie : I placed the leftover turkey and stuffing in a pyrex dish and whipped up a pan of mashed potatoes, enough to cover the top. Baked it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.
Wednesday - turkey soup : made something based on this recipe here
Thursday - sloppy joes in whole wheat buns served alongside zucchini
Friday - breakfast for dinner: omelets with cheddar and ham & whole wheat applesauce cake (oops, I guess I'm serving dessert for dinner -- don't tell my mom)
And, you, what's on your menu this week??
