We have been eating a lot of leftovers since Thanksgiving, everything enjoyed but not one single recipe made to share today. Instead I found this poem.
I didn't have potatoes,
So I substituted rice.
Didn't have Paprika,
So I used another spice.
I didn't have tomato sauce,
So I used tomato paste,
A whole can not a half can,
I don't believe in waste.
My friend gave me the recipe,
She said you couldn't beat it,
There must be something wrong with her,
I couldn't even eat it!
(Hmmm...... I have been on both sides of that table.)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

The poem made me smile. And hooray for leftovers.ReplyDelete
That's great, thank you Sue and definitely hooray for leftovers :)Delete
Yep, HER (or his) recipe I've followed all too many times!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Anni, yes, me too :)Delete
Cute poem Denise. I love the Thanksgiving leftovers.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day, have a great new week!
Thank you Eileen, so glad and me too :) I wish you the same!Delete
Love the poem. I've done my own substitutions before with varied results.ReplyDelete
Thank you Ann, happy you did. I've tried a few substitutions too, some worked out, some did not :)Delete
We have not been enjoying any leftovers, Denise, as we were not home for Thanksgiving and also there was no turkey dinner. It is nice to have leftovers with no cooking needed for a few days!ReplyDelete
Hi Dorothy, nice to go places on Thanksgiving when you don't have to cook :) We had a smaller traditional meal this year and it turned out great.Delete
me too and just this past week, i found an EASY recipe for drop biscuits with only 4 ingredients, the gluten free stuff... Bob asked me something as I was halfing the ingredients and I added to much MILK as in 1/2 cup to much and OH MY did they taste bad and like glueReplyDelete
Ah yes Sandra, been there, done that :) All learning experiences, lol!Delete
What a great poem! LOVE it!ReplyDelete
Great Jeanie, so glad :) Thank you!Delete
That vintage Thanksgiving photo is so cute. I've always liked the vintage cards - my sister introduced them to ma many years ago, and ever since then, I was hooked.ReplyDelete
Enjoy this Christmas season, Denise.
Thanks Sheri, and I do enjoy old vintage cards. Happy to hear your sister introduced you to them :) You enjoy your Christmas season also Sheri :)Delete
I did enjoy the poem :)ReplyDelete
Enjoy this new week.
All the best Jan
So glad Jan :) Thank you and I wish you the same.Delete
Leftovers are a given.ReplyDelete
Yes indeed, thanks William :)Delete
Thanks Christine :)Delete
I relate to the poem. If you've ever been on Pinterest, I'm always amazed at the ways people change recipes and then give a bad review! I don't think Bob wants me to put turkey on the menu for quite awhile....ReplyDelete
Hi Barb, I go to Pinterest to find recipes sometimes. I have to say, even though we enjoyed our turkey, we are happy to have it once a year on Thanksgiving. Gregg would probably have the same mind as Bob :)Delete
I came back after a visit to your blog. As your comments were closed I just wanted to say what a wonderful opportunity for Ben to see Norway. It’s sweet to hear how his love for photography came about. He will take some amazing ones where he is right now, and he is very wise not to share locations. All his photos are magnificent, but I so enjoyed the one of the moose, the eagle and the fox and I thank you both for sharing your photos with us out here. I know you bring a lot of smiles.Delete
Such a sweet poem, Denise. Sometimes substitutions work and somtimes not--believe me, I know.ReplyDelete
Happy you enjoyed it Martha Ellen :) I believe you on those substitutions. Found that out many times over the years ;)Delete
Good poem. We eat left overs after a celebration as we don't care to waste food.ReplyDelete
Thanks Margaret! I don't like to waste food either :)Delete
Cute poem. We ate at a family member’s house, so no leftovers…ReplyDelete
That would have been fun Linda :)Delete
Me, too. Funny but true tale...my friend was telling me what she was making. She called it Italian beef. I asked how she made it and it did not sound good to me, but I told her the next time she made it to save me a taste of it. She did, and it is now one of our favorite meals.ReplyDelete
That's a wonderful tale, I really enjoyed that. Thanks Rose :)Delete
What a fun poem 🤩ReplyDelete
Thank you RO, so happy you enjoyed :)Delete
