For those of you that celebrated, I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s day. I missed my daughter and youngest granddaughter.
For Mother’s Day this year we smoked a turkey. We always buy a couple at the holidays for less than a dollar a pound and freeze them. I usually cut up one or two as well.
Today I smoked half the turkey, made potato and macaroni salad and hubby wanted stuffing. I know, sounds like a carb fest. I was happy with the turkey and sliced tomato.
I saved out the thighs to fry one night. I love a good fried thigh. I went ahead a smoked the legs. If no one eats them I will freeze and one night I can simply thaw and heat in the oven. The breast can be used for many things.
I will slice off some for sandwiches for lunches and make some turkey salad too. the other half of the breast I will cut up and use for stir fry,

This Greek Turkey and rice skillet looks good too.
Here is a turkey chili with leftovers.
And there is always good old roasted sliced breast with potatoes and gravy.
Did you have a good Mother’s day? Was you treated to a special meal? do you have a turkey recipe you like to share?
