I lied this morning. I do have a bit of the post-Thanksgiving blues.
Maybe it’s because I’m home alone. Perhaps it’s because it doesn’t really feel like the holiday season yet. Maybe it’s because I forgot my phone at my parent’s yesterday and feel a bit disconnected from the outside world. (I know still have internet. It’s a first world problem) Or perhaps it’s because I made a grave error yesterday: in addition to forgetting my cell phone, I also forgot to bring home some of Dave’s homemade bread in my stash of leftovers.
I know greater travesties have occurred. I’m just sensitive, okay? Instead of thick slices of french bread seasoned with herbs de provence, I had to make do with what I had to create the ultimate leftover turkey sandwich.
I started with a pita fold-out and topped it with cranberry chutney and leftover brussels sprouts.
Then finished it off with turkey and, finally, Havarti cheese.
I sauteed some broccoli in balsamic vinegar with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper on the side, then finished off my plate with leftover stuffing and mashed potatoes.
Good food can’t completely cure the blues. But it certainly does help.
