Gobble it up

So it's the day after Thanksgiving and you've got a crapton of leftovers. You are thinking 'Great, I will be eating turkey for a week'- or as my family calls it, Turkey: the Sequel, The Return of Turkey, and Turkey Rides Again (yes, we love showbiz a little too much).

Although it's fun to have Thanksgiving dinner 4 nights in a row, sometimes you want to mix it up with the leftovers. Enter stage left, my newest favorite: Black Friday Pie

I made this on Sunday night after we had leftovers from the previous nights' Thanksgiving with Friends. It was a huge hit with JEGs.

1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots (or leftovers from the day before work too)
5 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 3/4 cups turkey or chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 1/2 to 3 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
2 cans of Pillbury cresent rolls (NOT the cheapy Giant brand. I learned that the hard way).

Drain peas and carrots; set aside. Heat butter in 2-quart saucepan over low heat until melted. Stir in flour, onion, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly; remove from heat then stir in broth and milk. Place back on heat; heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in turkey and vegetables.
Prepare pastry. Fight with open first can and roll uncut on bottom layer of 9x11 greased baking pan. Add turkey/veggie goopiness. Open second can, unroll it and place ontop . Bake in 425° oven until golden brown, about 20 min. Serves 6.

Accept praises for baking the most delish dinner ever. Act confused when people think it is a pot pie. It is obviously much better then that.

Always & Forever,

I love anything that 1. resembles a pot pie in any shape or form 2. allows me to eat crescent rolls. Why is it that I buy a canister of them, make them all then procede to give John *one* and I get the rest? Why are they so good?

Oh and since I was feeling so blah over the holiday, I nothanksed any offers of bringing home leftovers. I just didn't feel like dealing with packaging them up and all that. I totally regret that now.

haha, my word verification is "suckest" ha, that's a good one.
