From the 2012 Debs…
Deb Joanne is pleased to announce that she has almost lost all the excess weight that she gained on her cruise, and is thankful that she didn’t have the setback of a huge Thanksgiving meal this week. Although she does hope all of her American friends had a wonderful holiday!
Deb Erika has been off the grid for a few days and hopes that everyone has had a wonderful holiday break with family and friends, and hopes too that our Deb friends will share what they enjoyed at their table!
Deb Molly will be reading from her book tomorrow, Monday, November 28, 6:30pm at Katarina’s in Chicago.
Deb Linda is happy to have survived the Thanksgiving weekend, and is hoping for a brief period of normalcy before the Chanukah/Christmas craziness descends on her household.
Deb Rachel is recovering from a weekend of too much food. She needs to fend off the holiday weight gain in advance of MWF Seeking BFF‘s release in just three weeks!
Deb Dish — What is your favorite leftover from the holiday feast?
Deb Joanne – is it wrong to say EVERYTHING? I love a leftover plate almost as much as I love it on the actual holiday, but I guess that isn’t really what we’re going for here. That said, my mom, as you can imagine, is an amazing chef, so pretty much anything she cooks makes for an excellent leftover. Her soups, from matzo ball to beef barely, to my favorite, cabbage borscht, are awesome and many dinners end with attendees bellying up to the stockpots for a take-home handout (me included). But maybe my favorite take-home treat is kugel, a noodle pudding made with apples and a sweet, crunchy coating. I don’t make this stuff myself, so to be able to take it home to enjoy for several meals to come, is always a special treat.
Deb Erika loves leftover Brussel sprouts (no, that is not a typo). Oh, and pie!
Deb Molly goes straight for the leftover stuffing balls.
Deb Linda loves it all! (Mmm…turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce!) But of course, the desserts are the best. This year’s pecan pie was especially tasty. As were the pumpkin pie, the pumpkin chiffon pie, the apple pie, and the brownies. Pardon me while I have a moment…
Deb Rachel eats leftover mashed potatoes for every meal.
What about you all? What is your favorite leftover?
