I posted this turkey tetrazzini recipe in the food section and no one seemed interested. However, dozens of folks on my FB page asked "what to do with leftover turkey" . . . and several of them gave me feedback that they had made it last night and really enjoyed it. So I thought you all might find it helpful.

It calls for canned soup but I have modified it and one of my friends did, as well. I put a block of cream cheese in for a can of soup. Just keep the liquids in the right range. Also, I have substituted chopped green bell pepper for the pimiento (as I had the bell pepper on hand). And I typically use broth rather than the plain water that is called for in the recipe.

Let me know if you make it and if you make any modifications. I have been doing some version of this for over 30 years (usually not in the crockpot) but find this is very convenient - throw the ingredients in and go about my day!

Last night, we ate the remaining bits from the spiral cut glazed ham, so I put the ham bone in the slow cooker with dried pinto beans. I just checked them and they smell/taste wonderful!

So nice to find ways to use all the leftovers.

Turkey tetrazini, yum!

I can't believe we ate all the leftovers yesterday! True, I didn't make as much food as usual but still.... that was a lot of food. We're taking a 6 mile hike today and then raking up leaves and it's a good thing, otherwise I'm going to have a family of whales.

We got in the spa last night - beautiful evening here! And my son was teasing that we were not going to fit in the spa if we kept "pigging out" as we had since dinner on Thursday, lol. So I think we will be fighting off the whale syndrome today, too, Caladium!

Plan on blowing some leaves and I am going to try to talk the guys into helping me hang the wreaths in all the windows - a major job as our windows are often "stuck" and hard to open - especially on the second floor! I can't do it by myself so last year, no wreaths at the windows = wh/ seemed very sad, indeed. I don't do many decorations these days and so without the wreaths, things did not look festive here at all.

It has gotten colder but we are still expecting high 50s today, I believe. No excuse for not getting out in the yard!

Have a great day!

My grandma told my mom once that when you hit 50 you are an "antique". At 70 you are "officially old". At 90 you are "ancient". If you hit 100+ you are "lucky"! My mom loves to repeat this...often. She is 85. lol

Congrats Tuborg! Every milestone reached while we're still above ground is something to celebrate.

Will the biggest celebration be for the last milestone? I believe everyone knows what that one is.

Well, I certainly hope so. I'm always been a fan of going out in style, with my friends and family holding some sort of "celebration of life". A shame I'll have to miss it, though.
