Every year my mom makes a second Thanksgiving dinner, creatively dubbed "Thanksgiving Two." It's because my mom knows the importance of the thanksgiving leftover. Whether it's the classic turkey sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce, or the inventive "stuffpuppy," Thanksgiving leftovers are as American as, well, Thanksgiving - it's all part of the tradition.
Kristen sent me this idea for the "stuffpuppy," which anyone with an at-home fryer should most definitely try. It's basically a fried ball of mashed potatoes and stuffing. I didn't get a chance to put this into action, but it seemed like a worthy enough idea to blog about anyhow.
Saturday was also the answer to Black Friday - small business Saturday. I obliged by going to the Stonington Farmer's Market to buy blueberry scones and the local coffee shop, The Yellow House, to get a double espresso to sneak into the library for Jake. The local realtor had a sign in their window that said "Shop Local - Buy a House," but after the coffee and pastries I just didn't have enough pocket change left over.
