A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you
The love of God enfold you
The power of God protect you
The presence of God watch over you
Wherever you are, God is,
And all is well.
Amen.

BLESS THIS HOUSE
 Bless this house O Lord we pray; Make it safe by night and day; 
Bless these walls so firm and stout, Keeping want and trouble out:
Bless the roof and chimneys tall, Let thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a'blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the folk who dwell within, keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be Fit O Lord to dwell with thee;
Bless us all that one day we May dwell O Lord with thee.

Hi Ma, home again, filled to the brim
turkey and dressing, and mashed taters
the calories are a sin.
Pies by the truck load all covered
in cream, and pots of hot coffee
letting off steam!

Thanks for this thread.

SavingDinner.Com leftovers recipe

Beanless Turkey Chili
Serves 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, pressed
1 red bell pepper, chopped (seeded and deribbed)
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (seeded and deribbed) (optional)
1-2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
1 28-oz. can tomatoes, broken up
4-5 cups cooked turkey, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of one lime

In a large saucepan or skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic, celery, peppers and seasonings over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes. Simmer gently for 20 minutes. Stir in cooked turkey and cook until heated through. Before serving, add lime juice and fresh cilantro and stir gently.

Serving Suggestions: Serve in bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese and blop of sour cream. Serve with a big green salad and cornbread muffins. If you don’t have that much turkey left, you can add a can of drained white beans and one cup drained canned corn, and it becomes more of a chili.

And the other featured recipe

Barbecued Turkey Pasta
Serves 6

1 pound fusilli or other medium pasta shape, uncooked
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cups leftover turkey, cubed
1 small green bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small red onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (your favorite)
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup grated provolone cheese
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

Prepare pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add turkey and saute, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown on all sides, about 1 minute. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic and cook until pepper turns bright green, about 1 minute. Now add your favorite spaghetti sauce and barbecue sauce and heat just to a simmer. Remove from heat.

Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of water and return pasta to the pot. Add turkey mixture and cheese to the pot. Stir over a low heat until pasta is coated with sauce. Add enough of the reserved cooking water, if needed, to make the sauce lightly coat the pasta (you don’t want it too thin, however). Serve up the pasta in bowls and top with green onions and chopped cilantro.
