Left Overs

Not sure what everyone does with their Thanksgiving left overs, but in my home, we have turkey salad, my turkey soup, which is on my blog.

This year we are also making relleno de papa or potato ball.  We will be using up the left over turkey and mashed potatoes we had.  You can fill this with what ever meat filling you like  but traditionally this is filled with ground beef.  The meat would be seasoned with spanish seasonings like Sazon, Adobo, Safrito with also put garlic and onion powder.  Relleno’s are a Preto Rician street food and it is just so delicious.

This is my brunch today.  Yes it is on a paper plate.  I did not want to wash anymore dishes.

Some More Thanksgiving Pics

I finally got all my pictures uploaded to the computer today, so I am posting them today.    This has been a very busy holiday for our family, but we love it.  To be with family and friends it the best thing in the whole world.

My husband is always in charge of the turkey.  What ever he does always works so that has been his job each Thanksgiving.

Oh yeah forgot to mention, my table setting was the Pioneer Women’s set.  They are so beautiful don’t you think?

It’s the Day Before

Thanksgiving and all through the house, not a potato was peeling throughout our entire house
Waiting is my family for this day to come, and with sheer excitement for dinner to be done
Dinner will be great and tummies will be full. With the football game playing and drinks to refill
What more can you ask for on this wonderful Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving desserts

The most common dessert on Thanksgiving I would say is a pie. There are so many pies, but these I believe are the most popular. You have the “oh so good” apple pie, then the sweet potato pie, and let’s not forget the pumpkin pie. Now this list does go on and on with pecan pie, peach pie and whatever other fruit pie you can image to eat. You also have your cobblers, which is another comfort dessert that is made with several variations of fillings. For our desserts we normally just do the famous apple pie with some whip cream on top. However, this year we may stray a little with tradition. We are still going to have apple, but not in a pie form, and a strawberry cobbler. We made the strawberry cobbler before and this one was great so we are going to make it for Thanksgiving. I found the strawberry cobbler on YouTube I believe from #Iheartrecipes, and the apple dumplings was found on Pinterest. You can find the Pinterest one under my desert board.
What are your traditional Thanksgiving desserts?
