Using Up Thanksgiving Leftovers

Good news!

Round 2 of Christmas tree decorating was a success


Mid-afternoon, I finally got the motivation to get to work on finishing up the tree. It doesn’t look a whole lot different from the first one, but at least its got all of its lights working. Wooo Hooo!

I also finished up putting up the rest of the Christmas decorations which came together quite nicely.



Yesterday afternoon while Jay and I were out shopping, I also made a quick pit-stop at Yankee Candle. I had a coupon for Buy 2, Get 2 free on large jar candles, which was an opportunity I could not pass up. I actually split the deal with my mom so she got two, and I got two.


In addition to this White Christmas scent, I also got the Cherries on Snow scent; both of which I am now currently obsessed with.

I just love Christmas decorations. Smile



Ooooo boy, was tonight’s dinner yummy, thanks to some leftovers. If I’m not making this sandwich, one of my favorite ways to use up Thanksgiving turkey leftovers is with my Turkey & Veggie Soup.


Not only is the recipe beyond easy, but it’s just so incredibly flavorful, delicious, and healthy. You can’t beat it!


On the side we had some homemade bread, which I cooked up earlier today in the bread machine. It wasn’t one of my best batches looks-wise, but it still tasted pretty good.


Hey, we’ve definitely seen worse, haven’t we? Winking smile


Now, I’m thinking that a leftover piece of cheesecake and some couch time is the perfect way to end another great weekend.

Hopefully yours was just as great!
