1st up on the Turkey day leftover line up… Turkey Gumbo! I found what looked like a great recipe on Pinterest and 1/2’ed it for my husband and I, it really is so good. I will serve it over leftover stuffing as recommended. Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try it… http://www.nolacuisine.com/2006/11/30/turkey-bone-gumbo-recipe/ Happy leftover eating 😋, g.
So my Mom in law is the real MVP of pie making, but I was craving a berry pie of which she does not make. So I thought I’d give my pie making skills a refresher course. I am certainly not known for my baking skills and I’m ok with that. My pie is not the prettiest here, but I will say this… it sure turned out pretty darn delish! Here is the berry filling recipe I used. The only change I made… I cut back on the sugar by 1/2 cup. I thought a whole cup was just way too much for my taste buds, you might like a sweeter filling though so stick with the whole cup.

While on this trip we had the opportunity to visit family friends in Oxford England, and so it was in Oxford that I was first introduced to the rather incredible delectable treats know as Yorkshire Pudding! Typically Yorkshire Pudding is served with Sunday Roast, a grand meal fit for any day of the week of, beef roast, gravy and sides, plus Yorkshire Pudding. The Yorkshire Pudding/Popovers are served on the plate with the roast, gravy and sides and you eat them with your meal. These Popovers are savory and super delish! Here’s the recipe I used. I just made 2 modifications. First of all I only used a 1/4 tsp oil in each popover cup. Secondly I added an exact 1/4 tsp salt to the mix. http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/light-and-crispy-popovers Next time I make these I will be using beef roast drippings or bacon drippings instead of the canola oil …

Next, pour 2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce on top of the chicken. Cook on low in a crockpot for 8 – 8 1/2 hours. Here I’m using a large chicken, 5.5 pounds, so I set the timer for 8 1/2 hours.
