I just had a smoked Turkey, cole slaw and provolone with Russian Dressing on a Poppy Seed Kaiser Roll sandwich. A nice way to make use of T-day leftovers. Washed it all down with my Golden Monkey cloned Tripel...mmm  :)

Tonight will be a post Thanksgiving tradition:  green chile turkey enchiladas.  And beer
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Soup and sandwhiches - everything homemade.

Spicey smoked turkey soup.  Sliced smoked turkey breast, oyster stuffing, slathered with remoulade, on sourdough muffletta bread.

Thanksgiving weekend is my favorite time of the year!

Did turkey croquettes for dinner yesterday.  Needed a break from turkey today so did up some shrimp scampi and fresh bread.\

Yeah, it's something my mom makes sometimes.  I didn't use her recipe for these.  I grabbed one off the net, Rachel Ray's as a matter of fact.  They were good but I would make some changes next time.

We had turkey soup.  Delicious.

My mom used to make turkey croquettes after thanksgiving, it was never my favorite thing.  There might be "better recipes" out there though. :)

I make gumbo with a 45 minute roux, but I'll admit the okra does add a little sliminess to it. Still good though.

I just don't know what people see in okra. To me it is slimy and nasty. I do a dark roux and never use okra.

this was the first time i did not use a roux and i promise you, it wasn't slimy in the least.  i was skeptical, but i called my mom, who makes seafood without a roux and did what she told me and it was just awesome.  no slime at all...


olive oil in the hot pan, added 1 pound of frozen okra and stirred and chopped it until it wasn't slimy anymore and almost "disappeared". this took about 25-30 minutes. i had to add olive oil in the process, but never really measured how much i used. next, i added two stalks of diced celery and let that cook for about five minutes. then i added two chopped medium onions and a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and let that simmer 10-15 minutes. then i added 80 ounces of seafood stock, a teaspoon of gumbo file', paul p's seafood magic, salt, 3 bay leafs and let that simmer a half hour. then i added a pound of crab (claw meat) and let that cook for about 10 minutes. then i added 2 lbs of peeled clean shrimp (that was the peeled clean weight) and i let that simmer until the shrimp were done and then i covered the pot for an hour on no heat.

45 minutes?  I don't understand.  What does that mean?  How many beers does it take?   ;)

Turkey and andouille jambalaya tonight, me.

Your mom's recipe sounds awesome DS!  Definetly gonna hafta give it a try.
