Kitchen Concoctions: I try...

I try...

I try... I really do.

I try to follow through on the things I say. I try my darnedest. Like when someone invites me to a function, I make every effort to be there. If I am asked to bring a dessert to dinner at a friend's I never show up with something store bought. And most importantly I try to blog regularly and when I promise something like "a week of leftover Thanksgiving recipes" I try to have all the recipes made and blogged about and ready for each day of that week.

But then something always happens. I have computer or Internet problems, or I have to go out of town, or this time my excuse reason is that I started a new job, a second job. What have I gotten myself into?!?! As if I wasn't busy enough. Hopefully it won't be for long that I will have to juggle two jobs and soon I can just focus on just one, the one I love the most (which deals with food and writing. oh my! I am in heaven).

And until then, I will am high and TRY to blog regularly and faithfully (especially when I promise). And maybe one day I can totally be prepared and organized and blog every day of the work week like some of the blogs I love do (I admire their dedication, organisation, and TIME).

One day...

I promise...

I will try and get to that place...

Ok enough mumbojumbo. This long past due leftover turkey recipe was another awesome one. To create this concoction I took several of my favorite recipes mixed them all together, added a touch of Heather love and vola... Leftover Turkey (or of course Chicken) Creamy Enchiladas!
