Yes, the turkey is a Thanksgiving leftover.  The dressing is newly made- Pepperidge Farm blue bag, celery, onion and fresh sage from the garden, a little Bell's seasoning, chicken stock, black pepper.  Butter dotted on top.  The slice has been sauted in butter.  But the turkey was frozen in turkey broth, which has now made the most wonderful gravy.  The turkey white meat was somewhat stringy after thawing, but not dry because it was submerged in broth.

The whole cranberry sauce was made this morning, and this little dish of it is topped with the pink foam skimmings.  I like the skimmings best from any jam or jelly.  Whole cranberry sauce could not be easier - just the bag of cranberries picked over so the really mushy ones and the stems are removed - add a cup of water and a cup of sugar (like it tells you to on the bag), let it boil for a few minutes until the cranberries pop, and you're done.  How hard is that?    I love the sweet and tart with meat of any kind.
