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!
