The Day After

Good morning! Well, the Big Day has passed.  We prepped, we prepared, we cleaned, we cooked, we feasted and then we cleaned some more.  By now you've probably woken up from your food coma, yesterday's indulgences forgotten and are digging around the fridge thinking that, yes, pumpkin pie is indeed a healthy breakfast! Or is that just me? 

I imagine that by dinnertime tonight, we'll all be tired of the "traditional" Thanksgiving food and will looking for something different.  Using the leftover turkey breast and corn, I'm going to throw some chili into the crockpot.  We're meeting friends for drinks late this afternoon, will be nice to return home to find dinner all ready for us! I tweaked the recipe below, substituting turkey and shortening the cooking time just a bit.
