Winter’s Eve Ham & Veggie Soup

Winter’s Eve Ham & Veggie Soup

This soup was kind of a surprise win for me.  This will explain the lack of pictures and step by step instructions.  We had so many leftovers that I had decided that there would be no more cooking until we used up what was in the fridge first.  I was going through Pinterest and looking […]

Leftover Turkey Salad Wraps

Leftover Turkey Hash with Kale

I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about how much I love kale.  It’s my new favorite veg.  I’m surprised I haven’t actually done a post on it.  I love it as a salad, a sautéed side, in pastas and on pizzas.  This was something I dreamed up before we had even cooked our turkey, […]

Black Bean Nachos

Black Bean Nachos

These nachos were birthed out of a need to cut back on meat in our house.  After eating one bite, I realized I was never going to make nachos with meat again.  They are amazing!  John even said to specify that he likes them better than beef nachos.  That’s saying a lot from a guy. […]

This is the last installment of our smoked pork adventure.  After making pulled pork tacos, we decided to take our cue from the Far East and make egg rolls.  The ingredients are basically the same, but the flavors and method is a little different.  We actually made the cabbage, carrots and cilantro mixture for the […]
