Thanksgiving leftovers……

 

Once the leftovers are put away in the refrigerator, you have only a few days to eat them before they become a safety risk. If stored in a refrigerator, leftovers can stay good for three to four days. If they’re stored in a freezer, it’s three to four months.

Happy Thanksgiving……

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. It started off Cool and cloudy but the sun came out later and a high of 57 degrees.

Put out a couple of things outside and then gave a neighbor a hand and put up some lights on his shrubs. It’s Thanksgiving Leftovers for Dinner tonight. I’ve left part of the post from yesterday for item descriptions. Enjoy and take care everyone!

 

Our Food lineup for today is – a baked Jennie – O Turkey Breast, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, a jar of canned Green Beans, Sweet Potato Casserole, Deviled Eggs, Hawaiian Rolls, and Heinz Brown Gravy.

One of America’s Favorites – Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce

Cranberry sauce or cranberry jam is a sauce or relish made out of cranberries, commonly served as a condiment or a side dish with Thanksgiving dinner in North America and Christmas dinner in the United Kingdom and Canada. There are differences in flavor depending on the geography of where the sauce is made: in Europe it is generally slightly sour-tasting, while in North America it is typically more heavily sweetened.

The recipe for cranberry sauce appears in the 1796 edition of The Art of Cookery by Amelia Simmons, the first known cookbook authored by an American.

Although the Pilgrims may have been aware of the wild cranberries growing in the Massachusetts Bay area, sugar was scarce, so it’s unlikely that cranberry sauce would have been among the dishes served at the First Thanksgiving meal. Cranberries aren’t mentioned by any primary sources for the First Thanksgiving meal. The only foods mentioned are “Indian corn”, wild turkey and waterfowl, and venison. The rest remains a matter of speculation among food historians. Although stuffings are not mentioned in primary sources, it was a common way to prepare birds for the table in the 17th century. According to a “Thanksgiving Primer” published by the Plimoth Plantation, cranberries may have been used in the stuffing recipes, but it’s unlikely they would have been made into a sauce because sugar was very scarce.

Cranberry sauce was first offered to consumers in North America in 1912 in Hanson, Massachusetts. Canned cranberry sauce appeared on the market in 1941, allowing the product to be sold year-round. Cranberry sauce can be used with a variety of meats, including turkey, pork, chicken, and ham.

Cranberry jelly from a can, sliced

The most basic cranberry sauce consists of cranberries boiled in sugar water until the berries pop and the mixture thickens. Some recipes include other ingredients such as slivered almonds, orange juice, zest, ginger, maple syrup, port, or cinnamon.

Commercial cranberry sauce may be loose and uncondensed, or condensed or jellied and sweetened with various ingredients. The jellied form may be slipped out of a can onto a dish, and served sliced or intact for slicing at the table.

Cranberry sauce is often eaten in conjunction with turkey for Christmas in the United Kingdom and Canada or Thanksgiving in the United States and Canada, and it is only rarely eaten or served in other contexts there.

Today’s Menu: Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg

 

 

I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 41 degrees outside today. Had a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner! Everything was so good. Mom even made a Apple Pie made with Splenda and it was just incredible! But shortly after Dinner I had to deal with some extremely painful Phantom Pains! They continued through out the night into the morning. The finally let up around noon today and I was drained. These took about everything out of me. So I tried to catch up on some sleep and relaxation. Still hoping for a cure to Phantom Pains! On some good news I went for my exam and blood work to my Oncologist Wednesday. Everything came back completely clean! So now I just have to go for a yearly exam instead of twice and no more scans and x-rays! Really pleased over that. For Dinner it’s Thanksgiving Dinner Leftovers. I made a Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg.

 

Plenty of leftovers from the Thanksgiving Dinner Feast! And thank goodness for leftovers because after my night and I really didn’t feel like cooking. We almost always use Cook’s Ham when we bake a Ham. So with the Ham we baked yesterday, we made some into Ham Sandwiches. Just took a few slices and serving it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is so delicious and moist. And as always with Cook’s Ham, perfect seasoning! We’ll have quite a few Breakfasts and Lunches out of this. To make the Sandwich I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped it with a bit Kraft Light Mayo with Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and a slice of Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese. Love this Sandwich!

 

For a side I heated up the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and I had a leftover Deviled Eggs. Just love these leftovers! It’s sometimes better the second time around! For Dessert/Snack a bowl of Chex Mix with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Cook’s Hams

Semi-Boneless Hams
Classic Reduced Sodium Half (Serves: 15-20)
Half (Serves: 15-20)
Whole (Serves: 30-40)
Semi-Boneless Hams
Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are now fully cooked! This means they may be eaten cold or heated. The ham only needs to be heated through if serving warm.
With fewer bones and less fat, Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are a great value. With two of the three bones removed, carving and serving are much easier. With only the center bone remaining, your family can still can enjoy the great taste and flavor that only a Cook’s bone-in ham can offer, plus the added value of more lean meat and the convenience of less bone.

Ingredients
CURED WITH: Water, Dextrose, Salt, Sodium Phosphate, Sodium Nitrite.

Turkey Leftovers Storage……..

You can store your leftovers in the refrigerator for up to four days. Try to reheat only what you’ll be serving at one time rather than reheating the entire portion. It’s safe to heat it all and then re-store what you don’t use, but the food will continue to lose flavor and moisture the more it’s reheated.

Use a thermometer to make sure your leftovers are reheated to 165 degrees F. Sauces, soups and gravies should come to a full boil. If you’re using the microwave, cover the food and rotate it frequently to make sure it heats evenly.

Making space in the fridge for Thanksgiving………

Make space for Thanksgiving by cleaning out leftovers and expired condiments and using up as much as possible of what’s in the freezer and the refrigerator.
You can store hearty produce, like apples, fresh cranberries, and potatoes, in a cool, dry place, like the trunk of the car or the basement. We made a covered shelf in our shed, it works great as long as the weather stays cold.

What size Turkey should I buy?………..

Figure on 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of turkey per person. To buy the right size turkey for your party, simply tally up the turkey-eating guests. Add a few pounds on for bones and you’ve got your turkey weight. For example, 8 people will require a 12 to 14-pound turkey. Enjoy that Bird!
