Call me crazy, but I love Mondays. Maybe it’s because I’m not going into an office and having a whole week of sitting at a desk to look forward to. But there is just something about a Monday that I love. It’s a great “start over” day. How many of you have said the popular line – “I’m starting my diet on Monday.” I know I’ve used it a time or two! But no matter how off track I get the week before on anything – from housework to eating to working out – I always feel renewed and refreshed on a Monday.
This meal really has nothing to do with Monday, but it is a great way to start thinking about after the holidays. As much as I am looking forward to Thanksgiving, I am equally looking forward to the days that follow – meaning lots of turkey leftovers!! Although I didn’t make these with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, they would be a great way to use up some of your bird!
A great way to use up leftover turkey! Turkey and rosemary are bundled in crescent rolls for an easy dinner full of flavor.
