Rush Hour

This year, many families will gather around the table on Thanksgiving and an element of worry might be an uninvited guest. Times are tough for many and enjoying a decadent meal might leave some wondering if it's worth it. I say yes and encourage you all to enjoy it and then take fullest advantage of the inevitable leftovers the feast leaves in its wake. While warming plates of the same items day after day is an option, consider mixing things up a bit with some creative twists.

This month's recipe features a lot of great flavors that blend together to make a quick meal that is great when served alongside chips and a pickle for a quick lunch or a mound of those creamy mashed potatoes and some cranberry sauce leftover from Thanksgiving dinner. Quick, easy and delicious. I guess there's a lot to be grateful for!
