Every year after Thanksgiving, I remind myself to make a turkey pot pie. I always dream of saving some of the turkey and making something completely different and delightful with it. I usually heat up whatever leftovers there are and serve with the leftover sides. On occasion, I have had enough leftover to dice and […]
