High Five Friday #88 and a Post-Thanksgiving Scramble

by Meg on October 18, 2013

Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays. It reminds me a lot of Christmas, my absolute favourite holiday. The gathering of families, the beautiful colours of fall, and the turkey dinners. Gosh, I love my turkey dinners.

This year Thanksgiving was a lot different for me, it was my first time not flying home to Saskatchewan to spend the holiday with my parents. Instead, I stayed here in London and celebrated with my boyfriend and his family. I’m so blessed to be welcomed into such an amazing family like his. We celebrated our Thanksgiving on Sunday evening with lots of visiting and an incredible dinner featuring turkey, of course, roasted vegetables, stuffing, and mashed potatoes.

One of the best things about Thanksgiving, next to the turkey dinner, is the leftovers. However, the leftovers may even be better than the actual dinner. I love leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. It’s definitely one of my favourite things and I was lucky enough to be sent home with some last Sunday, which inspired the recipe I’ll be sharing with you today! It’s a Strange But Good recipe, so I wanted to share it with you today for Laura’s link up party!

Post-Thanksgiving Scramble

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1/2 cup chopped turkey, white meat
1/2 cup chopped turkey, dark meat
1 slice bread, sliced into cubes (I used The Big 16 bread from Silver Hills Bakery)
1 small baked sweet potato, cubed
1 large egg
1 cup spinach, shredded
1/2 cup cranberries
cooking fat (I used ghee)
parsley
sage
rosemary
thyme
pepper

Directions:
Heat your cooking fat in a pan.
Add turkey, bread, and sweet potato to pan. Season with parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, and pepper.
Once potatoes become crisp and the other ingredients are heated through, add in spinach and cranberries.
Once spinach wilts and cranberries become saucy, add in your egg. The egg will soften the bread, giving it a stuffing-like texture. Scramble until egg is cooked.
Remove from heat, plate, and enjoy!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Strange But Good recipe! :D Now it’s time for High Five Friday! :D

The following high fives have been submitting to me via email. If you’d like to appear in next week’s HFF please email me at adashofmeg@gmail.com. Read here for more details!

Lindsay – “I wanted to give myself a high five today for a great week at work. I’m really starting to see growth in my writing, in my concepting and in my ability to work in groups to come up with lots of fun ideas for new projects. I got to record my radio scripts yesterday, and even though it can be a stressful writing process, it’s so worth it in the end.”

prove yourself wrong

Mitchell – “I want to give myself a high-five for completing week two of my second six-week workout program. I’m finding myself looking forward to a decent session each morning, which is a pleasant surprise :)

Also wanted to give a high-five to Jan @ Sprouts & Squats for completing her half-marathon on Sunday! Such a great accomplishment, she really deserves a high-five :)”

Lauren – “Your breakfast change-up challenge has inspired me to be more creative with my early morning meals! I made a runny yolk, spinach and turkey sausage bowl topped with sauerkraut the other morning and it reminded me of you! It was so delicious and it was the perfect fuel to start my day!”

Corinne – “I’ve been sick all week, and though I was craving to run days and days ago, I held off. In the past I would just keep going until I got so sick I was on all sorts of antibiotics and other medicines. I’m giving myself a HF this week for taking the time to recover!! ”

Michelle – “So, I want to give myself a high five for successfully completing 18 weeks of marathon training this week & God willing, running my first full marathon on Saturday!”

Katie – “After stepping away from the music industry the last couple of years, I’m pleased to announce that I accepted a new job.”

Thank you to all of you who took the time to email me and participate in HFF! It means a lot to me that you take the time out of your day to send in your high fives to be featured in today’s post, but I’m also proud of each and every one of you for understanding the importance of giving recognition to your accomplishments over the past week! :D

Remember, high fives don’t have to be about huge successes, they can be about tiny accomplishments that you feel good about doing! So, go on and give yourself a high five! Tell me in the comments below why you are giving yourself a high five today!

I will be giving myself a high five for completing my second course of my Holistic Nutrition program. I wrote my final exam on Wednesday and actually felt really confident walking out of it :D Such a good feeling! I’m putting a lot of effort into studying and I think it’s paying off! :D

What is your high five today?

Denise @ Do you have that in my size??? October 18, 2013 at 9:59 AM

I wrote about my High Five on my blog today: I’m helping my co-workers develop healthier food and exercise habits. I’ve formed a daily walking group and brought in fruit and other healthy snacks for everyone to share. Now other people are bringing fruit in to share as well and the walking group goes out at the appointed time even if I’m in a meeting and can’t go with them. Yay!
