Good morning!  I hope you have a FUN shopping day planned; I’m working a 9 hour shift at the doggie kennel. :)   I’m actually working today, Saturday, and Sunday at the kennel.  So, I’m not really on a Thanksgiving vacay.  But at least I’m makin’ money for the wedding!


I’m leaving for work before sunrise, so I made my breakfast last night and simply reheated it.  If you’re wondering what to do with all those leftovers, my suggestion is…. make a quiche!  Or lots of mini quiches. 🙂


Thanksgiving Leftovers Egg White Mini Quiches


These little quiches contain leftover green bean casserole and leftover turkey! Gobble, gobble!




  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup leftover green bean casserole
  • 1 small slice chopped white turkey (a little less than 1/4 cup)
  • Pepper to taste




  • Mix all ingredients.
  • Pour into three greased cupcake tins.
  • Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
  • Enjoy!


On the side, I had two leftover rolls from Thanksgiving dinner.


And a cup of coffee….


Mid-Morning Snacks


So, I’ve been working from home for a year and a half, and I’m kind of nervous about being away from my kitchen while at work — what if I’m hungry and need an extra snack? What if I’m craving something else? Ahh!  I totally forgot what it’s like to pack snacks and lunch.  In the end, I packed a bar….


And a half of a PB sammie…


Which I’m hoping will hold me over until my lunch break, when I’m going to RUSH home, let out MY dogs, and eat some food.  This job is manual labor + loads of dog walking, so I hope I don’t get TOO hungry.


Have a fabulous Black Friday!

    Have fun with all the puppies today! 🙂

    Your Thanksgiving looks awesome! My family was always really casual with it too and I’ve kept it the same with hubs and I. Usually we’re eating in our jammies. 😀

    hahaha – I definitely have a little roll to contend with today!

    I love your family’s casual approach, too. My fam is pretty laid back about things like this, too.

    Grandma’s recipe for rolls looks wonderful. I for sure would have eaten 18!!!!

    Enjoy the wedding cake. I love how sweet your family is. 😀

    What a creative and adorable leftover idea! Love mini quiches 🙂

    I know, packing snacks and meals can be so overwhelming at first, it just takes practice to figure out what packs the best and keeps you energized the best.

    Hope you enjoy your job! 🙂

    Brilliant idea with the leftovers!

    Have fun with the pups today 🙂

    Those quiches look delicioso!

  • Halie November 28, 2008, 9:35 am

    Hope your second day on the job is as good as your first! Give the pups a pat on the head for me 🙂

    I wish I was shopping til I drop today- instead I’m stuck at work too! Oh well another day another dollar right?? 😉

    Great idea on the quiche!

    I know what you mean about having to pack snacks and lunches…when I started my full time job I always underpacked my lunch and wound up starving mid afternoon- now I know to ALWAYS have lots of food and to bring an emergency stash of almonds! I have one in my bag and car at all times. lol

    Have fun dog walking!

  • BOBBI McCORMICK November 28, 2008, 12:41 pm

    Your so creative!!! I won’t have any leftovers, and when I get home I plan on cleaning out everything in the fridge and pantry!!! Have fun at the kennel!

  • lighterportions November 28, 2008, 1:01 pm

    Great idea with the quiche leftovers. I love leftovers. Almost better than the actual dinner itself! Almost…

    Have fun with the job! Plenty of dog walking sounds like the perfect follow up to a big holiday meal.

    have fun “workin”!
