So NOW what?

Thanksgiving is behind us now and what to do with all that's left? Here in our home, once we've had our fill of turkey sandwiches with Hellmann's REAL mayonnaise (of course!) on fresh, squishy white bread, we make turkey stock and then it's promptly on to turkey pot pie and squash soup for us.

Because we're basically all incredibly tired of turkey at this point, making a giant pot of soup now seems pointless so we reserve enough stock for the squash soup (about 5 cups) and the turkey pot pie (about 2 cups) and we simply freeze the remaining stock for some wonderful Winter soup cookery.

Here's how we do it.

What is Food Blog Search?

Food blogs are a wonderful source of recipes, stories, and opinions about food. These blogs are the labors of love of countless people from around the world who are so passionate about what they cook and eat they spend hours photographing and writing about it. Food bloggers usually give much more information and personal touches to what they write about than commercial cooking or recipe sites. Search for a recipe among food blogs and you'll often be delighted by the hidden jewels you uncover.

Food Blog Search is a custom built search engine specifically for searching recipes in food blogs. It is intended to be a useful tool for food bloggers and for scratch cooks looking for recipes and inspiration. Food Blog Search uses Google technology, through the Google Custom Search Engine program.

Mail order cherries and coffee

Even if you can't take it with you, you can usually order it up online or by phone as long as you have a credit card. I continue to enjoy my favorite Seattle coffee from Caffe Ladro every morning right here in my own kitchen, and I get the tartest dried sour cherries from Tadco, the ingredient warehouse in Rochester NY.

My Mom's Spinach Salad

Here is my Mom's spinach salad recipe.

As you can see, it is a well seasoned treasure! I found it tucked inside her main cookbook which was a Betty Crocker with a ring binding. The cookbook had a red and tan cloth front with factoids printed on the inside covers. I distinctly remember this salad being served while I growing up - it was the introduction of Bacos and an alternative to the only salad we'd ever known as kids - ICEBERG!
