When you go to eat your leftover turkey, is it deliciously moist or is it dry and hard? Often times when we go to reheat the turkey leftovers, it goes in the microwave and comes out dry as a bone. No one wants to eat dry turkey. And, often our gravy is long since gone. What is a person to do?
To combat dry turkey:
Drizzle some chicken stock over your turkey before reheating. The turkey will soak up the stock and leave you with deliciously moist turkey.
Sharpies are our friend. I always keep a sharpie in my kitchen to write the date I opened something. In this shot, I opened my organic chicken stock today. This way I know how long a container has been open. This goes well for leftovers too. If you’re using reusable containers and don’t want permanent marker, try a dry erase marker. If you write in an area that you won’t be grabbing, it should stay well enough.
I also use sharpies in other places around my home too. I put the open date on my laundry detergent so I can see how fast we are going through it and how many I should pick up to survive until the next shopping trip. So, grab a sharpie and keep it in your kitchen too!
Lots of recipes call for bread crumbs but we don’t always have them on hand. What I’ve done is to make up a batch of bread crumbs in the food processor, then put them in a container and store them in the freezer. Now I’ve got bread crumbs ready when I need them. This saves lots of time when I come across a recipe that calls for bread crumbs.
