Unfortunately I had to work on Thanksgiving day, however I had a lot be thankful for.
I am thankful that I had a long weekend home with family and friends, that I was able to spend time shopping and cooking with my mom, and that I was able to still have a Thanksgiving dinner with everyone that I love.
The menu consisted of:
Parmesan Artichoke Dip
Roasted Turkey and Gravy
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Big Dog Salad
Dessert: Pumpkin and Apple Pie
Of course I took home leftovers, but who wants to eat Thanksgiving leftovers for 5 days, well I found a yummy recipe that solves this problem.
Turkey (or chicken) Lasagna with Sage and Three Cheeses
(About 8 servings, adapted from Kalyn’s Kitchen)
3 cups chicken stock or canned chicken broth
5-6 cups diced, cooked turkey (or chicken)
16 oz. container reduced-fat sour cream
1 1/2 cups turkey gravy (can use gravy from a jar or cream of chicken soup if you don’t have leftover gravy)
1 cup good quality coarsely-grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
3 T finely chopped fresh sage, or more (or use about 1 T dried rubbed sage)
1 pkg. lasagna noodles
1 1/2 cups grated low-fat mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated low fat cheddar cheese
Spray a 12″ x 9″ casserole dish with olive oil or non-stick spray, then make a single layer of dry lasagna noodles. Spoon half the sauce over noodles. (It will look like a lot of liquid, but don’t worry.) Sprinkle over half the mozzarella cheese and half the cheddar cheese.
