Some recipes.......Some Thanksgiving tidbits.......and Some reasons to be thankful!  
 
 
One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is the leftovers.  We make lots to insure we have plenty of leftovers for turkey sandwiches.  Careful though, those leftovers don't last forever in the refrigerator.  Take a look at the chart below and perhaps print it for future reference.  Better safe than sorry with a bad tummy ache.    :-)

2 T all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
2 cups half-and-half cream, divided
1 cup cooked, chopped turkey meat
1 tsp finely chopped onion
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
2/3 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
1 (10.75-oz) can condensed cream of chicken soup

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Blend in flour,
salt, pepper and 1 cup of half-and-half.  Reduce heat to low and
simmer, stirring, until thick.  Stir in turkey, onion, and
breadcrumbs.  Mix well, then shape mixture into 8 small patties and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow dish or bowl and place remaining 1 cup half-and-half in a second shallow dish or bowl.  Heat oil in skillet.  Dip patties in crumbs, then in cream, then in crumbs again; brown patties in the hot skillet, place in a serving dish and cover with soup.
