Few weeks ago we Canucks celebrated Thanksgiving. And of course, after spending a wonderful day filled with great company and food, there’s the leftovers. So. many. leftovers. The majority of it being the turkey meat itself. So, I went to Google, to find a Crock Pot recipe I could use it up with. I came across the recipe below and thought I’d give it a try, as I had never made a chowder before. It was easy to put together, which is always important to me!! The sweetness of the corn and the spiciness of the red pepper flakes were a great combination, which myself, hubby and our son enjoyed. We’ll definitely make this again sometime. For those of you in the U.S., about to celebrate Thanksgiving day a few weeks from now – give this recipe a try to use up that leftover turkey you’ll have. I think you’ll enjoy too!!
Today I was standing in the kitchen, wondering what to eat. I opened the pantry to find canned corn – great!! Now, what to do with it? I thought for a bit, and I decided on adding some salsa (1/4 cup to be exact) and some Greek yogurt sour cream for the extra creaminess compared to regular (1/4 cup as well). I finished it off with cracked black pepper, and my salsa corn salad was born. It may not look like anything special, but it was flavourful, and that’s what matters to me!!
Have any of you, come up with a weird food concoction, off the top of your head? Yesterday I didn’t know what to eat for lunch. I did know I didn’t want to have a sandwich though. So, I opened up my pantry, and after staring at it for a while, came up with a corn and chicken salad. I took a can of no salt added corn niblets, then added 2 slices of deli roasted chicken meat. I also added a chopped pickle, a tablespoon of miracle whip and Frank’s hot sauce. Now, I know it probably looks and sounds gross, but it wasn’t half bad LOL I’ll definitely make it again 😀 Though next time, I’ll added more spices, to jazz it up some!!
