Morning Everyone
Great hockey game yesterday. It is always good to come out of the gate with a win..Keeps it up boys...Those of you who cooked dinner on Christmas night will have leftovers. Those who were lucky to be guests at someone elses dining table will probably have left the house with a doggie bag. My girls forgot to bring their containers for leftovers , so they went home empty handed.

Wanted to post a picture of the sockmonkey
that I made for my grandson Easton I put an
red embroidered heart and and red letter E
on his little butt.

I have decided to do a week of leftover turkey recipes...You do know that turkey is not only meant to be cooked on Thanksgiving or Christmas so keep these recipes on hand for the next time you cook a turkey..When you find turkey on sale pick one up and cook one for your Sit Down Sunday and then cut up what is left over and freeze it and you will have close at hand for and Leftover Turkey recipe. I am hoping that you all took notes from the chef that cooked you your Christmas dinner, cause the best way to learn is to watch...So here it goes your weekly menu:

Monday... Cran-Turkey Enchiladas
Tuesday...Turkey Tortilla Soup
Wednesday...Turkey Creole
Thursday...Nacho Turkey Casserole
Friday...Smoked Turkey Panini Sandwich

Cran-Turkey Enchiladas

Nonstick cooking spray
2 to 2-1/2 cups shredded cooked turkey
1 16-oz. can whole cranberry sauce
1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1-1/2 cups bottled salsa
1 cup shredded colby and Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz.)
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
8 7- to 8-inch whole wheat or regular flour tortillas
1 tsp. bottled hot pepper sauce
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 3-quart rectangular baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. For filling, in a large bowl stir together turkey, half the cranberry sauce, beans, 1/2 cup of the salsa, 3/4 cup of the cheese, sour cream, green onions, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper. Spoon about 2/3 cup filling on each tortilla. Roll up tortillas around filling. Place, seam sides down, in prepared dish; set aside.
2. For sauce, in bowl stir together remaining cranberry sauce, remaining salsa, and hot pepper sauce. Spoon over filled tortillas. Cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover; top with remaining cheese. Bake 5 to 10 minutes more or until heated through and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with additional cilantro and green onions. Makes 8 servings.

Today we are off to Victoria to visit friends that we did not get a chance to see the last couple of days..I might even hit the fabric store... You have a good day and maybe think about those who could need an extra hand. Most of us have had a memorable Christmas and a thankful one as well..If you were fortunate enough to of had someone put you up or cook for you over the holidays how about a nice thank you card sent by mail or email to let them know how special they made your Christmas.. If you do this you will have now made that person feel that all the hard work was appreciated and worthwhile..
