Down To Earth
Because we had been eating pretty high on the hog recently, when planning the weekday dinners, I was happy to find squirreled away in the freezer a nice big turkey pot pie that I made from our holiday bird.
Back then, we thought that one more meal of turkey would be enough to turn us away from that noble bird forever. We had roast turkey for Christmas dinner but there were only five of us at that meal, so we had mucho left over for sandwiches, Tetrazzini, soup, more sandwiches, world without end, amen.
So, I piled the last of the bird under a crust with some nice gravy and a few veggies, and froze it for a later date. It's amazing how welcome turkey is after a month-long hiatus. We tucked into our down-to-earth dinner with happy appetite. When My Beloved's first bite results in his sitting back in his chair and humming with pleasure - well, it's just a grand thing to witness.
