January is the big leftover month. A month when we can live cheep on what we already have in stock, and save our money for the travels we dream about taking later in the year - Venice in April, Rome/Terracina in July.
I didn't use all the turkey yesterday, so when I came home from work today I cooked some pasta and made a cold turkey salad. A turkey salad can contain alot of different ingredients, use what you have and mix it with your creativity. Mine consists of turkey, cold pasta, celery, cucumber, an apple, green salad, salt ( I still have some left from what I bought in Malta the summer of 2005) and good virgin olive oil - my favorite for the moment is the French D&CO.
Serve the salad in an antique "Egersund fajanse" bowl, use some nice dinner plates (always treat yourself good on a Monday), fry some "day old" bread in olive oil, and drink alot of fresh water. Enjoy a perfect dark Monday in January meal!
