It’s Friday, the day after Thanksgiving…
We had the pleasure of being invited to be with some wonderful friends for Thanksgiving dinner.
We were told not to bring anything, but we did insist on bringing dessert and happily showed up with an apple and a pumpkin pie….yes, you guessed it…from Costco…both were delish!
When the meal was over, like most Thanksgiving meals, there were OODLES of leftovers. Diane, our hostess, insisted we take home most of the leftover turkey…and I obliged.
In the video above, I share a frozen roasted vegetable discovery I made at Costco earlier this week and it is included in this recipe.
For those of you that have been following my recipes and cooking style, it is VERY “By Gosh or By Golly”….so quite often, the measurements are vague. I encourage you to “make it your own” and use my suggestions as INSPIRATION and substitute with what you have on hand…keep it SIMPLE and easy on yourself!
