Weekly Menu 12/6+

We've had a number of great leftover items this week.  However, the best was a turkey pot pie, I made up the filling recipe myself because every recipe I've tried before it fell short of what I had been looking for.

This was so good the first night, that two days later L asked if I would make it again.  That RARELY happens, so I figured it must be good and worth sharing with all y'all.
