LAST OF THE LEFTOVERSSunday night, the last of the leftovers and moving on tomorrow with the Winter holiday decorations. All but a few of the Thanksgiving decorations have been boxed up for another year. Sundays are all about comfort food, so pancakes with maple glazed bacon and Martinelli's apple cider for breakfast. So after reading the Sunday paper and watching The CBS Sunday Morning Show with Charles Osgood time to whip up some comfort snacks.
Mix up the rest of the left over mashed potatoes with some ham,cheddar cheese and chives then spoon into a muffin pan (spray with Pam first.) Then bake at 375 degrees until they puff up and brown a bit.
Perfect for a snack or serve with turkey gravy and a salad for an easy lunch.
While the potato puffs are cooking, I put my Thanksgiving turkey pasta to use and made a pasta salad.
Pasta, black olives, cherry tomatoes and artichoke hearts. I used Newman's Own creamy balsamic dressing for a tangy taste. Chill for at least 1 hour. Some salad and the last of the cold turkey on a dinner roll with mayo; nice light dinner.
All done with the leftovers. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, but before the night ends, one last toast with Martinelli's sparkling apple cider.
