Since we had traveled for the holiday, we didn't have any turkey leftovers. I did bring home two huge turkeys to put in the freezer. The store by Mom's was having a sale on their fresh turkeys on Thanksgiving Day, so while one bird was baking I sent Nick to pick up two more and throw in her freezer, then bring home. I would like to make one on Christmas and the price was just too good to pass up. And since my freezer is relatively empty right now, getting a spare was a good idea.
Last night, after doing a lot of sewing all day, I made a big dinner for Ev and I. We had fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and salad! Yum!
And I just want to share this thought - don't save making green bean casserole for the holidays! Make it on a Tuesday or a Thursday or any day. It's really not difficult and adds so much to the meal.
I was going to make gravy, but, well, I kinda forgot... Butter on the potatoes worked just fine. hee hee.
