Last week, I randomly decided that I want to start bullet journaling. I have never been able to find planner peace and I would be that type of person who would buy all the planners out there and stop using them within two months. I keep a collection of notes on my iPhone but I really want to get back to paper and pad because that’s where my creativity shines through. I love to doodle, I love stationery (colored pens, stickers, washi tape, etc.) so I thought bullet journaling would be the best fit for me.

I’m still trying to get the hang of it but so far, I’m starting to realize it’s trial and error and it’s not about perfection. I’m very OCD when it comes to having stuff written correctly or drawing something perfectly. With bullet journaling, everything changes monthly, weekly, or daily, and you pretty much just go with the flow – something I have a lot of difficulties doing. I hope that bullet journaling will channel my creativity on paper and challenge me to not be perfect because life isn’t perfect.

It’s that time of year again where we’re frantically trying to plan our Thanksgiving Day menus. Have you ever thought about what to do with Thanksgiving leftovers? Instead of planning for Thanksgiving Day this year (because let’s be real – we all almost always make the same dishes every year because it’s tradition or it’s “mom/grandma’s signature dish.”) I’m showing you how you can use Thanksgiving leftovers!

You know the day after Thanksgiving, the last thing you want to eat is more turkey and more stuffing but what if you could eat them in a totally different way? I’m pretty sure just shaking it up a bit, it’ll make you appreciate leftovers that much more!

Behold: Thanksgiving tacos…with leftovers!

How fun are these, right?! You basically use all your Thanksgiving leftovers and throw them on a taco! I actually totally wouldn’t mind eating my leftovers this way. And, if you have other leftovers that are different than my standard lineup: turkey, cornbread stuffing, cran-orange sauce, sweet potatoes…totally feel free to sub in and out. The beauty of these Thanksgiving tacos is that you have the ability to change it up to how YOU see fit.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 flour tortillas
  • Leftover turkey shredded or chopped into pieces
  • Leftover cranberry sauce
  • Leftover stuffing/dressing
  • Leftover sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes
  • Any other leftovers you have

Instructions

  • If you have a gas stove, carefully turn the burner on medium-high then place tortilla shell directly onto the burner. Flip after 10-12 seconds with metal tongs and toast the other side. If you don't have a gas stove, you can try this under a boiler but keep an eye out!
  • Once tortillas are all toasted, start layering your taco however you want!
  • Enjoy :)

These tacos are a great idea. I admit I've been avoiding cooking turkey the last few years because I get so bored of the leftovers. :P I have the same struggles as you re: keeping ideas organized. I think I should give bullet journaling a try too.. I mean why not? I've tried like everything else. I'm reading those links you posted in the comment below - thanks for the inspiration!
