Grandma’s Meatballs & Pasta Sauce

Homemade pasta sauce may take a bit of time, but besides time it’s incredibly easy to make! Stir it up, add some meatballs and let it simmer.

Grandma Snow's Meatballs & Pasta Sauce 1

Got plans this weekend? You do now! Time to make some homemade pasta sauce compliments of Bob’s Italian grandmother. For dinner one day, he pulled out his trusty family recipe-binder and whipped up a batch of his grandmother’s pasta sauce complete with some huge meatballs. The meatballs were cooked in the sauce which helps marry the flavors of the two together. Most of the sauce was then canned but some of it was served over spaghetti with the meatballs on top. The meatballs were even stuffed with gouda because, well, why the heck not?

Sweet Potato Casserole Pancakes with Cranberry Sauce Syrup

Reinvent your Thanksgiving leftovers in the form of pancakes, using sweet potato casserole and cranberry sauce. You’ll be so glad you had leftovers to make these!

Sweet Potato Casserole Pancakes with Cranberry Sauce Syrup 2

I hope everyone had plenty to eat yesterday! I had the luxury of having two different kinds of turkey, turkey breast roulade (which I had originally planned on making for Friendsgiving) and fried turkey. Both were very moist and packed with flavor and I am excited for the leftovers. Especially since the only way I will ever have fried turkey again is if someone else cooks it like yesterday. I wouldn’t trust myself around that big of a pot of boiling hot peanut oil.

Speaking of leftovers, in case you get bored with sandwiches, reinvent your leftovers into an entirely different option such as these pancakes. Made with leftover sweet potato casserole (or butternut squash in my case) and leftover cranberry sauce. Go ahead and make these for all your visitors staying at your home this holiday weekend, especially if anyone was crazy enough to go out shopping.

Roasted Poultry Stock

Save your leftover turkey bones and innards this Thanksgiving and make your own poultry stock to use in your favorite comfort soups and stews during cold month.

Roasted Poultry Stock 1

When you think of pets, certain toys are associated with cats and dogs. For cats it’s little balls with bells in them, catnip-stuffed animals, and string or wands with a string and a little object on the end. For dogs it’s balls, ropes, bones, kongs, and stuffed animals. While my cat enjoys his share of stringed and jingly things his favorite toys are a fuzzy kong octopus and a tennis ball. He loves rolling on his side/back while hugging either of those objects with his font paws, kicking at it with his back paws, and biting it (it’s obscenely adorable btw but he moves too fast to get pictures). I’m beginning to wonder if he doesn’t think he is a dog. He did spend the first 2 years of his life living with my roommate at the time’s two toy fox terriers. I used to think that he got along so well with them because he thought they were cats, but maybe he thinks he is a small dog? He is awfully needy and by my side at all times. Who knows, he is cute and he is mine.

Anyway, I rambled on about that much longer than I had intended. Originally I had planned on just saying “Hey guess what? My cat’s favorite toy is a tennis ball.” and leave it at that, but apparently I had much more to say on the subject. Unfortunately Thankfully it has absolutely nothing to do with today’s recipe.

After you gut your turkey next Thursday, cut out its spine (if spatchcocking), and then cook and devour it leaving the bones behind – don’t throw it out! You have some quality ingredients on your hands. I know all that stuff looks gross but I promise, just throw it all in a pot of water with some roasted vegetables and herbs. Not only will your house continue to smell like thanksgiving dinner, you’ll also be on your way to some easy, homemade poultry stock. Then you can use it to make leftover turkey soup, or any of those other cozy fall/winter soups and stews I know you are planning to make in order to survive the cold weather. (Which by the way, my friends in upstate NY got pounded with some serious snow this week. I kind of miss it… and then I don’t.)

Some of my favorite comfort soups that I will make with the stock:

Spatchcocked Turkey with Champagne-Thyme Gravy & #OXOTurkeyDay Giveaway

The biggest Thanksgiving problem is always how much oven space and time the turkey hogs. Try this sptachcocked turkey that not only takes up less space but is done in 90 minutes!

Friendsgiving 3

Turkey, the Thanksgiving staple. However I actually did try to convince my parents into having smoked ham this year instead but that was meat with instant dismissal. Maybe for Easter. It is true though, all the potatoes, green beans, and stuffing seems better fit for turkey. So a turkey is what I cooked when I hosted Friendsgiving at my friends home, marking only the second time I have ever cooked a Thanksgiving meal and both times in someone else’s kitchen. Thankfully I brought along some trusty OXO tools to make this adventure less stressful than the last time, because cooking in someone else’s kitchen is never as easy as your own.

  • Poultry Lifter – This is one heavy duty tool used to lift your turkey unscathed onto the serving platter.
  • Twine Dispenser – Although I did not need twine for a spatchcocked turkey this is a really handy tool if you do truss your turkey or use twine in other baking/cooking adventures. Pork loin roulade anyone?
  • Angled Baster with Cleaning Brush – Whether you are basting your turkey or sucking up the pan drippings everyone needs a good baster. It even has little feet for resting on the counter.
  • 2 Cup Fat Separator – Easily removes fat from pan drippings, comes with it’s own stopper and strainer, had measurement markings, and is heat-resistant.
  • Stainless Steel Butter Dish – Pass the butter! And don’t worry about butter fingers with this good grips butter dish.
