I typically only eat small amounts of food at once, maybe 5 bites and i`m done until a couple hours later. This makes leftovers important to me, as it
may take grazing the leftovers several times before Iget my full meals worth.
We went to a family dinner yesterday, and upon returning home I was informed my hubby forgot to bring home our share of leftovers (everyone brings too
much so everyone make "doggybags" of a little of everything to take home).
So here Iam, the day after thanksgiving, no turkey, no taters, no casseroles..... wth???
So what do Ido? Well, first I made a list of ingredients needed for turkey, handmashed taters, greenbean casserole, creamed corn casserole, turkey
stuffing, and homemade apple pie...
I then called a family meeting and said I'm willing to donate the 5 or so hours of chopping slicing dicing sauteeing, searing, basting and baking if
the 3 kids spotlessly clean dining table and kitchen (honestly starting to look like sumthin from hoarders) and if hubby does shopping trip with my
list. Kids said "yay" and jumped up to clean. Dad said "I'm not going shopping today forget that". I didn't argue, just said, sorry kids deals
off, ill cook but not cook AND shop. Guess 5 hours cooking isn't worth 30 min at store for some people.
I headed upstairs as the sharks (kids) began circling their prey (poor hubby) who is now at the store getting ingredients so Ican recook my
thanksgiving meal because it should just plain be illegal not to have turkey leftovers thru end of november!
