Another "leftover" meal

Pumpkin dinner roll dough

This was how my kitchen counter looked Thanksgiving morning! I should have started my rolls even earlier, because they were just barely done before we left the house. I'm thinking next year... I'll make them the day before. :)

Leftover meal

The next day, we had a few more pumpkin rolls (warmed, with butter -- so delicious!!) and I made a simple lunch using leftovers in my fridge.

The leftovers I had were: some egg noodles, a small amount of diced cooked chicken, and a couple kinds of cooked vegetables. I made a white gravy (half milk, half water, with some flour to thicken) and seasoned it with onion, garlic, pepper, salt, and parsley. I mixed everything together and it was basically like chicken gravy with egg noodles. ;) Pretty good, though, and definitely better than trying to re-warm everything separately! :)


We had pumpkin rolls on Thanksgiving too!

I made mine a week ahead and after I formed them into rolls, before the second rise, I froze them on a cookie sheet and then popped them into a freezer bag. Thanksgiving morning I pulled the rolls out of the freezer and let them thaw/rise in the baking pan for a few hours and then baked as usual. It was a great time-saver with all of the other cooking I did that day. The rolls were delicious and everyone loved them.

For turkey leftovers I used my mom's tuna casserole recipe and substituted turkey for tuna. That worked out well too.
