Leftovers!
« on: October 09, 2006, 07:30:51 PM »
We just had the first leftover turkey meal. Leftover turkey, stuffing, and gravy. With potatoes and asparagus. There is a lot of turkey left, but tomorrow I'm going home and I'll take some. So, samitches, maybe a pot pie? Soup?

It disappears quickly around here.  Most of it goes in slices on toasted baguettes with lettuce & tomato.  Sometimes I like it minced up really fine & warmed up on a steamed (or toasted) bun.  Turkey soup would be wonderful and comforting.

Many of my meals are leftovers -- when you live alone, that's common, and at least it cuts down on prep time.

I see that Magoo-san has posted a leftovers feature on the Front Page.

ETA: He is doing "potsticker dumplings." Looks like fun.

My leftover turkey meat goes into pasta dishes and curry. Especially the curry because it spices up a pretty bland meat. (Also, I get to imagine Bridget Jones' mum exclaming, "Turkey Curry Buffet!"  :lol: )

Vy a duck?


:)  Is this a Henny Youngman reference that I should be asking my dad about?

Y a duck?  More interesting than a chicken, but about the same size.

Another good recipe for using up the poultry is Cornish Pasties.  I can't remember any exact measures, but it's basically a flaky pie crust, cut into 6" rounds, then stuffed with filling (leftover bird, potatoes, carrots, onions, a bit of gravy... that sort of thing) and pinched together across the top, like a change purse (or, really, a huge dumpling).  Then it's baked until the crust is a lovely golden.  A meat pie without a pie shell.

No, Vy a duck is Marx brothers. :D

From viaduct of course, but a play on German or Yiddish pronunciation. (The Marx family were German-speakers ... oh, like that other Marx family ... but must have been surrounded by Yiddish-speakers in NYC).

(HAMMER) All along here, is the river front, and all along the river, those are all levees.
(CHICO) That's the Jewish neighborhood?
(HAMMER) Well, we'll Pass-over that! You are a peach, boy! Now, here is a little peninsula and here is the viaduct leading over to the mainland.
(CHICO) Why a duck?
(HAMMER) I'm all right, how are you? I say, here is a little peninsula and here is a viaduct leading over to the mainland.
(CHICO) All right, why a duck?
(HAMMER) I'm not playing "Ask-me-Another", I say that's a viaduct.
(CHICO) All right, why a duck? Qhy a, why a duck, why-a-no-chicken?
(HAMMER) Why, I don't konow why-a-no-chicken. I'm a stranger here myself. All I know is that it's a viaduct. You try to cross over there on a chicken, and you'll find out why a duck.
