Acorn Squash Stuffed with Turkey, Quinoa, Cranberries and Feta

Acorn Squash Stuffed with Turkey, Quinoa, Cranberries and Feta - Chew Nibble Nosh

Alrighty then.  Thanksgiving’s over, so what do we have?  Leftover turkey!!  I think many would argue that Thanksgiving leftovers may be the best part about the Thanksgiving feast.  So, when you’re finally hungry again after the gorge-fest that was Thursday, here’s a deliciously different, and healthy way to take care of some of those leftovers.

I love acorn squash, and stuffing it like this with a savory mixture of healthy quinoa, leftover turkey, cranberries, and some feta cheese (along with some other goodies) makes for a deliciously simple dinner.  Pair it with a salad, and you’re good to go.

Happy Almost St. Patrick’s Day!

‘Tis the season to make corned beef and cabbage for dinner.  Much like Thanksgiving dinner, one of the best parts about St. Patrick’s Day dinner are the leftovers!  I love good corned beef…can’t get enough of it.  I love good corned beef sandwiches…can’t get enough of them either.  This year, I thought I’d turn some leftovers into a fun version of one of my favorite sandwiches.

Before I started assembling my quesadillas, I prepped all of the goodies that would be tucked inside.  I drained a pound of sauerkraut and then squeezed out the excess liquid with some paper towels.  I was afraid that my quesadillas would become quesa-soggy with all of that juice.

Christmas dinner, for us, was a small affair this year.  It was just the four of us.  Pretty quiet, and the youngest two of the four wore their pajamas to dinner.  (The cast of “Downton Abbey” would be mortified.)  It was a lazy, laid back day over all.  One that we all needed and really enjoyed.  And at the end of it, I was left with a cozy holiday feeling, and an excessive amount of Christmas ham leftovers.

I hope you guys like ham, because it’s likely that I’m going to throw quite a few hammy favorites your way in the coming weeks!
