Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! How was your day yesterday? I pray that you were able to spend a peaceful time with friends and family, dwelling on the goodness of God and His loving mercies toward us. We often have a large family gathering for Thanksgiving, but this year because of the way things worked out, we just had my grandparents over for the day. It was kind of nice to have a smaller crowd, and we enjoyed the quiet, relaxed atmosphere. At least I did. I ended up curling up on the couch and taking a nap. 😛
I realized that I don’t really have many recipes that utilize Thanksgiving leftovers, so I thought I’d concoct one for lunch today in case you were left with half a turkey and need some fresh inspiration. I did my typical thing and combined some things that may seem slightly odd to the casual observer, but they all seem quite normal to me. If a mayo/horseradish/mustard/spinach/cheese/turkey wrap topped with gravy seems strange to you, just leave off whatever you don’t think you’ll like. Or stick your neck out and be brave. If you try it, let me know what you think in the comments below!
Need more turkey ideas? How about using some in this Chicken Barley Veggie Soup or Mom’s Chicken Soup? Those are both THM:E recipes, so just use the chicken breast and low-fat broth. (Refrigerate the broth overnight, then skim the fat off.) Some THM:S setting soups that could use turkey are this Happy Harvest Soup, Loaded Baked “Potato” Soup, and Our Favorite Soup. Fat content don’t matter in those, so you can use both white and dark meat. You could also add leftover turkey to this yummy zucchini quiche!
I’m going to be concocting a new soup recipe with our leftover turkey tonight, so hopefully it’ll turn out well and I can post the recipe in time for Christmas leftovers. Does your family make turkey for Christmas as well as Thanksgiving? This year we’ll be with my mom’s extended family for Christmas, and there are enough of us that we’ll probably make turkey and ham.

- Spread mayo, horseradish, and mustard onto half of the tortilla or lavash bread. Sprinkle with the garlic herb seasoning. Top with turkey pieces, cheese, and fresh spinach. Fold the tortilla or lavash bread over onto itself. Fry the wrap on both sides in hot coconut oil until golden brown. You can enjoy right away or make some gravy to go on top.
- For the gravy, heat some turkey broth in a pan (I just use the same pan that I used to fry the wrap). Sprinkle in a very small amount of xanthan gum while whisking (so the xanthan gum doesn't clump). Add enough xanthan gum to thicken the gravy to your liking, season with salt and pepper, then pour the gravy over the fried wrap and enjoy!
