LEFTOVER TURKEY – WHAT ELSE ? – SAVED BY THE CROCK POT

26 Nov

  Okay ,  So  ,    you have cooked your little fingers to the bone the last 3 days getting ready for the BIG MEAL .

So  YES,    You deserve a break !     And Besides,    I’m just tired of cooking.

So here are 2 , yes count ’em      TWO    Quick and easy ways to use that left over turkey . ( unless you don’t have any left over turkey…… then you can pick up one of those   ALREADY – COOKED –   Rotisserie  –  CHICKENS      from the grocery store  ,     just so as to keep this as easy as possible )

They are both dump and go recipes so you will have plenty of time to shop the Black Friday or the other Post Thanksgiving sport–
