Merry Christmas!

I hope that you and your family had a wonderful day!!!! We sure did!!!!

As much as I wanted to stay PALEO over Christmas -- I did NOT. I wish I had because the spot on my elbow (which is looking to be psarios) flared up. It is OK -- I learned my lesson. I am back on board and now know what happens when I quit!!!

I made a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for Christmas... Remember, I do not eat PIG! so Ham in this house.

I made a great turkey! Moist and an amazing taste!!! and LOTS of left overs!!! I am so excited!

Last night, I made soup!

The Ingredients:
2 cups leftover Turkey
8 - 10 carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
1/2 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped
1/2 onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 box Turkey Broth, or  32 oz homemade broth
3 TBSP Parsley
1 tsp Garlic Powder (this is an estimate!)
1 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper (this is an estimate!)
1 tsp Lemon Pepper (this is an estimate!)
1 TBSP Olive Oil

The Directions:
In a soup pan, saute garlic and onion in Olive Oil for 3 - 5 minutes. Add carrots and cook for another 3 minutes. Add turkey broth and bring to a boil. Add butternut squash and celery. Let boil for 3 - 5 minutes and then add chopped turkey. Add seasonings to taste!
