If you have leftover turkey or ham from a holiday meal, here are plenty of recipe ideas – everything from pasta dishes to sandwiches. Plus, I couldn’t resist sharing some of my favorite photos from our Christmas celebration.
I hope all of you are enjoying the holiday season and finding some time to step away from the computer, take off your “working” hats and to really immerse yourself in quality time with family and friends. My parents and in-laws came to our house this year for our annual Christmas celebration. There was plenty of food (we cooked both ham and turkey for dinner), lots of laughs and some quiet, poignant moments. Below are just a few photos from our celebration…and, of course, a whole load of leftover recipe ideas.

Serious family, crazy family. I always love the crazy photos the most!
