After having Surprise Thanksgiving on Thursday, and Friendsgiving on Saturday I was left with more leftovers than I knew was to do with! Today is Wednesday and I wish I could tell you I have eaten something other than turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce in the past week – but that would be a lie. In an attempt to not be the most boring person on the planet I had a normal breakfast (normal as in not pumpkin bread)…
But that all changed by lunch when I heated up some corn pudding and pumpkin bread.
Let me tell you about this corn pudding…. it’s good; but when I was back in America and mom made it every year for Thanksgiving – no one (but her) ate it! I almost didn’t make it for our Friendsgiving but I felt like I would be breaking tradition if I didn’t – regardless of if anyone decided to eat it. Well… I tried it, and I loved it! I’m sorry mom for not eating your corn pudding, I didn’t realize how great it really was!
And that pumpkin bread –
Yes, that pumpkin bread – one of four loaves. I am a crazy person who sometimes confuses “2C of Pumpkin” to mean 2 cans of pumpkin. Now my freezer is full.
Am I the only one who has lost their appetite since Thanksgiving? Maybe I am just preparing my body for dinner every night – because I have been feasting on full Thanksgiving fixins since Sunday.
Soon after this photo was taken, that food became the best gosh darn sandwich on the planet!
And I can’t forget about dessert… we finally cut into the pumpkin pie!
Ben asked me if it tasted like home. My response, “It’s just the recipe on the side of the can.”
Although I do think it’s pretty wonderful my mom sent over canned pumpkin. You can only buy it in high end department stores or through the USA grocery store which charges an arm and a foot for 1 can.
Typically I have other yummies from the week… not this week because it has literally been thanksgiving for 7 days ’round here. You can however, check out my First Thanksgiving Down Under – in which I surprised Ben with his first thanksgiving ever! Or, our first annual Friendsgiving in Australia party we held on Saturday night which has WAY more pictures of really ridiculously good food; and a story about sharing the American tradition with my Aussie housemates.
Do you do anything fancy with your Thanksgiving leftovers?
