...and what we did have. It was Thursday, and we were still eating holiday leftovers. We had a couple of pieces of roasted Christmas turkey from the freezer, and we had some white beans left from the January 1 cassoulet.
We also had a green salad. After I'd washed the lettuce, Walt noticed the little gastropod pictured above crawling around in the kitchen sink. I'm glad we didn't eat him by accident. We both like to eat escargots but this one was just too little.
With the leftover beans and turkey, we made a version of Boston baked beans. Or Québec baked beans, because I saw the recipe on the web (www.ricardocuisine.com) and it called for maple syrup, among other ingredients (ketchup, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, cloves, cinnamon, paprika, and cayenne pepper). Delicious with chunks of turkey meat in it and bacon on top.
