Ah casseroles…the leftovers solutions. I also love using casseroles to make a huge batch of food for the week, you know, on those lazy weeks when you just don’t wanna cook after Sunday.
This year, Steve (and 3 other friends) will be off to New Zealand/Australia for the month of November, so they will miss Thanksgiving, which is a tragedy. So for this week’s theme, I wanted to create a faux Thanksgiving for everyone. I roasted up some turkey and then created “leftovers” for a turkey casserole.
Of course, no Thanksgiving is complete with some green bean casserole! I wanted to try making it from scratch this time, instead of from a can. I did cheat a little and bought the fried onions from a container.
We had a pot luck style dinner with some mac n cheese and sweet potato casserole too. And like all Thanksgivings, there was so much food and we’ll have leftovers for the week. Oh! and there was a pie and cookies!
