The day after Christmas I’m still holding onto the special moments shared with my family and friends and I don’t want the happy feelings to end! But at the same time I don’t have the energy to think about preparing a full feast again today.
But why would I, when yesterday’s leftovers are just as delicious — maybe even more so — then they were yesterday?
A couple slices of the leftover multigrain bread, some of that delicious sliced turkey and a few thin slices of leftover cheese, a small handful of salad greens and herbs and a generous slathering of Christmas chutney — sometimes I feel like I go through the process of making the entire Christmas feast just so I can unwind with this simple sandwich made from its leftovers.
A glass of red wine… a cozy seat by my fireplace… a good book… the happy memories of yesterday… that’s a Christmas present in and of itself!
