…of leftovers. I bet we’re all getting a little desperate, eh? Well, this ain’t no cooking blog but I thought I’d share my interpretation of turkey shepherd’s pie (tomorrow – pictures of spinning and maybe some knitting, I promise):

  • First, find a casserole dish or some kind of dish/pan that can go in the oven.
  • Cut up or break apart enough turkey to make a 2 to 3″ deep layer on the bottom of your dish, then put in a few glugs of leftover gravy. (don’t have leftover gravy? One packet of instant (mixed with water) will do)
  • Then, put on a layer of corn, leftover, canned or frozen – whatever works for you.
  • Next, a nice thick layer of mashed taters with some dabs of butter/margerine and paprika on top.
  • Stick it in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes or ’til heated through and crispy on top.

This is RR‘s favorite recipe – hands down. Even over the croquettes. He made the mistake of spreading the word at work and now has a co-worker who requests ‘Meat Pie’ every Thanksgiving – and gets it, since he’s our favorite ;o) This year RR is making the meat pie since I’m on strike (after four days of cooking you see if you’re still in the mood) and I overheard him singing his “leftovers carol” (kinda like a Christmas carol – but weirder) while he was mixing everything up (to the tune of I Love the Nightlife):

I love the meat pie…

I want the turkeeeeyyyy…

In my tummy, aaaaiiiiiiyyyyyy

It’s very catchy – so much so that I can’t get it out of my head!

I wonder when dinner’s ready…
