#SundaySupper: Leftover Mashed Potatoes and Beef Croquettes

SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week Nicole at The Daily Dish Recipes is hosting and the theme is What to do with Thanksgiving Leftovers?

I love Thanksgiving dinner.  We always have family favorites and it is so good.  We normally have leftovers, but my family usually eats the leftovers just like they are.  We don’t make new dishes out of them.  So for this Sunday Supper I had to do a little investigating to see what we could make.

#SundaySupper: Spanish Garlic Soup

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back super around the family table in every home.  This week Susan at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting and the theme is dishes that keep you warm.

I have a wonderful book called The Soup Bible.  When sunday supper decided on this theme I went straight for that book.  There is a section called winter warming soup!  Perfect!  I want to try all of them, but this one really stuck out to me.  It has a rather interesting process.  It is very simple.  However, it gets unique at the end.  You ladle the soup into single serving bowls and then crack an egg into it and put bread on top of that and bake it for a few minutes to poach the egg.  It’s brilliant and makes for a full meal.

Asian-Marinated Baked Chicken

Apparently I send very business like texts.  I get to the point.  Texting takes too much work to be frilly.  Who, what, where, when and why was it funny?  Those are normally the questions answered by my texts.

Those delicious spring rolls were made by my friend Kelzee.  They vanished rather quickly.  She also made this great peanut sauce.  Which added some wonderful flavoring to the spring rolls veggieness. (its a word, I just created it)

#SundaySupper: Grilled Chicken Pita Sandwich

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week everyone is cooking from The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman.

This is crazy!  I improvised!  Normally, I strictly follow recipes.  I am just not confident that I can alter something and it will still taste good.  But today I did not have a recipe and so I was spontaneous.

AND IT WORKED!!!!!  Ok, to start for #sundaysupper we are making something from Katie Workman’s cookbook.  I don’t have the cookbook so I had to use one of the recipes that is online already.  She has a parsley, lemon, rosemary roast chicken recipe that I thought might taste good grilled.  Not to mention there is no way I am going to turn on the oven in this heat.  (Also, I used parsley instead of rosemary.  I forgot to buy rosemary.)

#SundaySupper: Juicy Lucy and Blueberry Ketchup

I love Juicy Lucys!!  They are hamburgers with cheese in the middle!!  Juicy Lucys are a hometown original!  Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis takes credit for the first one.  And be careful eating your Juicy Lucy, because that cheese can burn you!!
