    Okay, yeah, we’re Texans. Tex Mex is comfort food, but turkey tostadas/tacos is one of our favorite turkey leftover ideas. It just takes a can of tomato sauce (once the turkey is sauteed with onions) and as much cumin as you think makes it taste Mexican-y enough. (I think the original recipe calls for maybe 1 tsp. I just shake till it tastes right.) It is NOT spicy-hot. Just flavorful.

    My sister really likes to do turkey gumbo. It has rice and okra and other gumbo-y things in it–andouille sausage, celery, bell peppers, cayenne, garlic, onions. She makes it with a roux, but I leave the roux off for my gluten free fella.

    However, I will have to wait till Christmas to get to do any of these yummy things. We had Thanksgiving with a lot of large college-aged young men, and there’s no turkey left. No sandwiches. No gumbo. No tostadas. Alas.

    Mmm, those sound good. I would never have thought of doing either!

    Turkey salad is one of my favorite leftovers… mayo, finely chopped onions, celery mixed with dried cranberries (sweetened) and chopped walnuts or pecans, salt and pepper to taste.

    Oh, Tara Marie, where were you when I needed a recipe for the very last of the turkey? That sounds perfect!

    I just finished picking off the last of the turkey meat (went into a quiche) and boiling the carcass last night for stock and to make Cream of Turkey and Rice soup tonight.

    I saw an amazing recipe for Cream of Turkey and Rice soup on allrecipes.com that I was going to make, but somehow I had NO long grain or wild rice. How does that happen?

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
