Monday was Thanksgiving here in Canada. This year finds me, as always, reflecting on the things I am truly grateful for -- my children first and foremost. Those of you who have followed this space for a while know my daughter has been living in Montreal the last four years. She’s home now to stay. I’ll miss my visits to that wonderful city that’s so very European but I have to admit, I’m thrilled to have my best friend back home. I’m grateful too for friends that have pulled me through some very bad times. We’ve made it!! The end of the tunnel has arrived and I’m confident that things will continue to go up from here. For our American readers, Thanksgiving is still to come. I hope this holiday finds you amongst your loved ones celebrating all the many blessings life has brought your way.

I’m using up the last of the turkey leftovers tonight. Anthony loves a recipe I make that he calls “pot pie without the crust”. Next to hot turkey sandwiches, I think this is his favourite left over magic of mine. So simple to make that I hesitate to call it a recipe.


Tony’s Crustless Pot Pie

This makes a ton but if your teens are anything like mine, it’ll be gone before you can say leftovers!!!

    In some butter in a saucepan, sauté a chopped onion till soft and almost golden, add four cans ream of anything soup and two cans of milk and allow to heat through making sure to stir continuously. Once it’s heated through add two to three cups (depends on how thick you want it) of chopped cooked turkey, a cup of peas, and let it all come to a gentle bubble. Adjust seasoning and serve with steamed rice, pasta, toast or Yorkshire puddings. Watch it disappear.

I’m keeping it short and sweet this month. But you know I’ll be back next month.

I’ll leave you with this question: What do snowmen eat for breakfast?

Give up? Snowflakes.
