As much as I love trying new things, I have to admit… I’m a creature of habit. When I go out to breakfast, I always order veggie omelettes. When I go to get frozen yogurt, I’ll stick to the flavors I know are good and refuse to try flavors like Taro.
Because of this, I think I would have a difficult time being a “true food blogger.” Lucky for me, other members of the family are much more creative. Lauren loves to try new foods, such as bone marrow and dessert empanadas. Another person who loves trying new things and making interesting food creations is my mom.
Thanksgiving morning is the best for two reasons:
- You wake up to leftovers and
- You just have to microwave them, and eat!
My “morning after” plate looked a lot like my “night before” plate, just in smaller portions… kind of.
My mom’s, on the other hand, was much more “food blog” worthy. See for yourself.
Step 1: Get two tortillas, pile on some cilantro and salsa, and chop an avocado.
Step 2: Microwave some leftover turkey and stuffing. Pile on the cheese and melt to perfection.
Step 3: Assemble the tacos!
Step 4: Add some cranberry sauce.
Step 5: Dig in.
Whoever said we learn important life lessons from our mothers was right. Lesson learned, Mom. I’ll try new things and get creative.
And Lauren, that means next time I’ll ditch the omelette and order some pancakes.
Q4U: Did you get creative with leftovers or just microwave and have Thanksgiving part 2?
