The Last of the Turkey

Cooking

Thanks to Thanksgiving, I’ve been feeling more motivated to cook! Leftover turkey = turkey and rice casserole. I’m tired of turkey; it needs to go!

I picked this recipe because it was easy and relatively healthy.

I added some pepper jack to the top because I can’t live without cheese!

It was a bit bland, but hot out of the oven and mixed with the almonds and blue cheese from my salad, the whole pile tasted pretty awesome. I was surprised when it was gone in about 120 seconds.

I had a fabulous day at work. Why? Because of a million little things:

-Wonderful festive Christmas songs on Pandora.

-New adagio chestnut tea that I discovered through Kath

-Half a pumpkin bar that someone in my office baked that went straight on top of my pumpkin oatmeal

-A sunny lunchtime walk

-The fact that tomorrow is Friday

-Lots of annoying tasks checked off the list!

For this evening, I rented one of my all-time favorite movies – While You Were Sleeping. I love Bill Pullman and I usually like to watch it around Christmas time because much of the movie takes place during the holidays.

The couch is calling. Bring on the weekend!!

    I always like to watch Love Actually during the holidays. Maybe I should watch While you were sleeping tonight.

    It seems like we had an endless amount of leftovers- my Dear ate them for daysss [I don’t care for leftovers, I’d prefer soup and a sandwich]… But we def didn’t spruce them up in casserole form!
