#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: Chicken Chowder

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is comfort food.

Whenever I think of comfort food I always think of soup.  Soup always makes things better.  If I have a cold or if I am homesick I want soup.  Soup always makes me feel better; always warms my soul.  I use to have to go out for soup.  But I am working on it.  I have been collecting soup recipes and slowly but surely attempting to make them.  Some times they are horrible, but lately I have been making some really delicious soup!!!

Roasted Vegetables with Cocoa Spice Rub

This was really good!  My friend Kelzee made it.  Nobody could guess the secret ingredient, cocoa powder.  I could not taste the cocoa powder, but the whole combinations of spices tasted really good.  I totally recommend trying this.  I am going to make this when I get a chance.  The vegetables she used was just what she had on hand.  I really liked the variety.

Potato Samosas

OMG these were delicious and I accidentally insulted Arbor (he made them).  So at first he said it was a curry and told me the ingredients and it sounded fine, but nothing fantastic.  Then he told me he was going to fry them!  Everything is better once you fry it.  And my mistake was telling him I thought this.

Irish Carrot Potato Soup


Last but not least the soup!  This soup is pureed, so there are zero chunks of anything.  My friend, Leslie, has been to Ireland and is partially Irish.  She told me this is how it is done in Ireland.  Pureed soup.  Works for me.

Irish Potato Casserole

For St. Paddy’s day I had a potluck/ everyone cook at my apt.  And it worked really well!  YAY!  I think I am going to have one once a month or so.  It really was a blast and was super easy.  I was kind of astonished how easy it was.  Just ask people to come and they make such amazing food and tell wonderful stories.  Yes, we will have to do this again!

Potato Rosemary Soup

Minnesota winters require warm soups that put a little meat on your bones.  And this recipe will definitely provide that.  It sounds hilarious when it is boiling.  It is so thick, the bubbles sound like mini geysers.  I was worried when I heard the first one that something had went really wrong.
