Thought you might like a recipe for left over turkey that you may have after your Thanksgiving Dinner You could also make this recipe with chicken-just change turkey broth to chicken broth and chicken for meat instead of turkey.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope you enjoy Jeans recipe this morning.

It really snowed last night and it is still coming down. Poor Pierre is not happy with the snow. He will not poop in the snow and the men haven't cleared an area for the dogs yet. I might add some pictures to this post a little later.

I love this recipe. I have it saved and ready to use in a few days.

It's beautiful out this morning. I took pictures before the snow falls off the branches.

Have a great day.

If get a chance, run over to Amish America this morning. Erik has on the locations of may Amish businesses by state. There are some I would like to go to when the snow melts. Maybe there are some in your area.

I just posted a few pictures of "Amish Mafia's" Lebanon Levi who was at a car show this month in Lebanon county Pennsylvania.

He's done events like this for local charities and has been seen in the area by the locals (myself included) since he lives in Lebanon, hence the name "Lebanon Levi".

Enjoy your Thanksgiving. Richard
