This is a recipe I came up with tonight, using leftover turkey and the bits of pastry crust left from the Thanksgiving pies.
1 Tbsp oil
3 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1 can sliced mushrooms
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup frozen corn niblets
1/2 cup frozen broccoli florets, chopped
turkey to taste, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onions and peppers, and cook til softened. Add remaining ingredients, using turkey broth to achieve desired consistency. Remove from heat.
2.Roll out pastry crust. Line 1 1/2 to 2 quart cassarole with pastry, reserving a piece to lay on top. Pour turkey mixture into cassarole. Top with pastry.
3. Bake in a 350 degree oven until mixture is bubbly and crust is golden, about 30-45 minutes. Serves 4.
It seems like it’s always Monday!
Thanks, Dad. I really appreciate it. I think I’ve got it now!
It was actually a really good day. The weather turned very mild overnight, so no slippy roads. And the sun came out for a while, too. I worked 6 hours, then went back over and worked Chester. We did more than just a little cantering today. We both worked up a pretty good sweat (okay, him moreso!)
Just waiting on my fella to call (Steve, not Chester :p)
Bad me! I thought I had created a “gallery” directory under your wp-content directory. Sorry. It’s done now. I also created a “thumbs” directory under wp-content, created a thumbnail of your picture and put it there. Then I displayed the thumbnail with the <img> tag and placed it on the left of this paragraph with the “style” command. In addition, I made the thumbnail a link to the Photo Index with the <a href=""></a> tag. (Click on the thumbnail for a larger image, then click on that image for the full size one.)
The picture is small enough that it could have been displayed in its full size right in the post, like this:
View this post from the administration panel (i.e. Site Admin/Manage/Posts). The important things are the location of the image you want to display (the directory path to the image) and the image tag (<img src="">). If you are displaying a thumbnail of a larger image, use the “href” tag (<a href=""></a>). You’ll get it.
It’s a short while till I’ve got to leave for Reidsville, NC to get my load for Portsmouth, VA. So goodnight.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to put pictures on this thing, and it’s eluding me. But at the moment, it seems unimportant! I did manage, with Steve’s help, to download and install Filezilla, and to connect to the WP site, but now that my image is in the directory, I don’t know how to access it. But as I said, it’s not pressing, at least not to me, at the moment.
We had a lovely dinner last night. The last of our guests did not leave until almost midnight, so we were up late. But Sandi and Lori did the dishes for me, and we had some good conversation and a lot of laughs. The guys got in some hockey, as well (not the football I’m used to, but sports is sports!) And by ‘the guys’, I mean the guys and Sandi!
We did have a great time, though.
Today I boiled the turkey carcass all day. I don’t know why, because I detest turkey soup. I just can’t stand to waste all the stuff still clinging to the skeleton. I’ll probably end up throwing the soup out in the end anyway!
The temps are right around the freezing mark, and it’s raining. Not a good combo. Can’t wait to see what morning holds…
I’m wider awake than I was last night when I wrote the how-to, and given the convoluted structure of directories and the difficulty of finding files in Windoze with PSFTP, I think it might be easier to use Filezilla.
We actually managed to top off the half tank of fuel in the car for under 30 bucks. It’s been a long time!
I have a nasty headache behind my eye today. It just came out of nowhere. I’ve been either in the kitchen or working today. My elderly client, who has been in the hospital for the last two weeks, is finally back home and in good spirits. They gave her a pacemaker! She says she’s feeling much better. So I cleaned for her today.
I better go check my pies…
Let it snow! (I hate snow. Why am I living in Canada?)
Okay, it’s not so bad. It is pretty. Though it took me 30 minutes to drive the 4 miles back home from dropping off Steve. I cancelled my morning job on account of it. Is 30 dollars really worth the $80 I’d have to pay the tow truck to come and extract me from that ditch? I think not.
So, I have a morning to myself, to catch up on some laundry, maybe do my biscuits and cornbread for the stuffing… I don’t believe I’ve mentioned that, as an excuse to put on a big turkey dinner, I’ve invited a couple of friends over on Saturday to partake with us. It should be fun. I’ve got an 18lb bird that was part of our Northern Provincial Grocers deal, and I’m doing squash and pea casseroles, sweet potatoes and dressing, oh, and giblet gravy. We missed the Canadian version altogether, and I’ve kind of been in the mood for a turkey.
Yesterday was pretty uneventful. I worked in Bath and Napanee, then went up to Selby to play with the horses. Chester and I took another long ride. We even did some cantering! (I have the bruises to prove it :p ) Jane has asked me to go shopping with her, so I can tell her what the horses need. That’ll be fun.
Then I spent the evening sorting the Avon order and writing up receipts. I finished that just in time to watch Criminal Minds. That’s a really good show!
I better get on those chores. I’m working this afternoon here in Deseronto, so I only have a couple of hours…
I cleaned today for an elderly couple out in Tyendenaga Township, which is about half an hour from here. They are really nice people; she has advanced Parkinson’s, and he reminds me so much of Grandad L. it’s creepy :p He’s actually the man who sold Jane the horse I’m riding now. He had Chester for 15 years. We were talking about him, and Mr. B. suddenly turns his head away from me. “I’ve had a hundred horses over my lifetime, Miss Angela, but that one was special.” I think he was getting misty!
It’s cold here today, with a bladed wind out of the north. Supposed to get snow tomorrow or Thursday. Yuck.
I don’t understand why we can’t just go from Sunday directly to Tuesday. Far as I can tell, Mondays serve little purpose other than being the wastebasket of the week, the day when all sorts of left-over crap rears it’s fanged head.
All that said, I suppose it could have been worse. I didn’t get fired. The car didn’t strand me ten miles from nowhere. I didn’t fall down any stairs or trip over any pets or find any dead mice floating in any commodes. Ok, I’m feeling much better about today!
I’m actually writing this from the upstairs of the Napanee Beaver, where I’m waiting on Steve to wrap up so we can go home and eat lasagne It’s quiet up here tonight, just Steve and Marion working.
I just came from Jane’s, where I spent the afternoon playing with the horses. Chester and I went for a nice long ride through the sheep pastures. We even did some trotting, he and I. He’s a beautiful ride. So smooth. So then we got back to the barn and discovered Goldie had thrown a shoe, so we had to go up and talk to Jane’s mother about what to do. In the end, we decided she’d be ok, and put them back in the field.
Isn’t this boring?
(This is where the rambling comes in.)
Steve is done, so we can go home now. And you’re saved from the rambling!
Steve and Angela. I’m Angela, and will likely be doing most of the family’s blogging because Steve is computer-weary! He says he’ll post occasionally, but otherwise, his computer time is generally spent at work where he builds ads for the local paper. That, and the month of November is NaNoWriMo. That is, National Novel Writing Month. This means that writers are challenged to sling together any 50,000 words that sort of make sense in thirty days. So far, he’s got 33,400. (He won’t let me read it.)
As for myself, when I’m not cleaning up other people’s messes for money, I’m either baking, painting, or cleaning up Baird messes. Bairds go through a lot of laundry, dishes, and cat litter. And Bairds don’t pay well :p
Today, Steve and I are hanging out at home, as we do most Sundays, playing maelstrom and watching the boob tube. I’m making an Under-400-Calorie lasagne this afternoon, which will be supper for most of the week. Then I’m making Baked Salmon on a Bed of Vegetables for tonight’s supper, another Under-400-Calorie recipe.
Oh, and speaking of, I have for Ashlee a ‘healthy’ brownie recipe! It may taste like dirt, too, I don’t know, but I’ll post it here later if she is interested.
