These turkeys are "stuffed" with a bag of rice and come with a recipe for leftover turkey casserole. I have had this pattern for years so I have no idea where it came from. But it always so much fun.
The recipe is simple:
Gobble-Good Turkey Casserole
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup
1 can Cream of Celery soup
1 package onion soup mix
1 cup uncooked rice
1 and 1/2 cups of milk
2 or 3 cups of leftover turkey
Combine all ingredients in a large casserole dish. Bake covered 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
All in all it was a pretty fun day. I even put up one Christmas BB to get a head start when we return. Meanwhile I am packing to go to a 2 day conference and will return just in time to make Thanksgiving dinner. The problem will be that my head will be into making activities for my class not cleaning my house (which is never my 1st thought) and cooking a big meal. I think I need a pause button.
For the 4 weeks, I am planning activities around The Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, Symbols of Christmas, and The Christmas Story. I'll try to post next week.
The Gingerbread stories I use for comparison to the Gingerbread Man are:
Interesting twists to the original story.
Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone.
