Did you ever eat left over turkey with nothing but a fork and a jar of mayonnaise?

Asked by josie (30826points) May 21st, 2012

I don’t eat mayo any more (too many fat calories), but when I was a kid the above was my favorite indulgence the day after Thanksgiving. Have you ever done that?

Screw the fork.

Berserker's avatar

Hell yeah man. Or ketchup. I eat a lot of stuff that should be eaten with something else, and not with the condiments/company I eat them with. Wieners with mustard, spaghetti sauce on bread, I also love drinking pickle juice. I’m poor and hungry, and there are wolves after me.

@Adirondackwannabe I bow to thee.

Charles's avatar

Black pepper too.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Symbeline I love spaghetti sauce on bread. I always have that before the spaghetti. I used to roll up baloney with mustard.

bkcunningham's avatar

Leftover turkey topped with leftover potato salad sandwiched between deviled eggs. I was a fat kid.

Berserker's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Haha yeah, I love baloney with mustard too. It’s great, and pretty filling at least for a little bit. Spaghetti sauce on bread really isn’t uncommon at all, yet in my area I seem to be the only one doing it. :/

I’m with @Adirondackwannabe… screw the fork. I have, on occasion, gotten down on my hands and knees, on the ktichen floor, in front of the fridge, after Thanksgiving, and eaten the leftovers, with my fingers, without even bothering to take the platters, pots, pans and bowls out of the refrigerator, let alone warm anything up. I’m an animal.

Edit: But most of the time when I do that, I stand up. I find that getting down on my hands and knees to raid the refrigerator after Thanksgiving sometimes lowers my self-esteem considerably.

@Symbeline It’s so good on garlic bread. My whole family does it.
@lillycoyote I love animals.

ragingloli's avatar

I do not eat turks. And I prefer Ketchup.

Berserker's avatar

@ragingloli I know you’re Satan and everything, but I thought you were Dracula. You should be eating Turks.

lillycoyote's avatar

God! Now I have an almost overwhelming craving for turkey and oyster dressing, with gravy and cranberry sauce, candied yams, green beans and pumpkin pie!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@lillycoyote Oh man, I so want to do Thanlsgiving right now.

Berserker's avatar

@lillycoyote Sounds good to me. Except cranberry. I hate that shit. But I’m with you on the oysters! Goddammit now I’m hungry.

Kardamom's avatar

@lillycoyote Ok now I’m hungry for rolls and butter, mashed potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, homemade whole cranberry sauce, Brussels sprouts au gratin and pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Symbeline You don’t have to have the cranberry sauce. I put that in a separate bowl, of course. You can have yours without.

bkcunningham's avatar

There was a restaurant in Cicero, NY, Plainsville Turkey Farm, that served Thanksgiving year-round. I think they went out of business last year.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’m so friggin hungry.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Kardamom Yes, the cranberry sauce has to be whole berry; there’s no other option, in my opinion.

lillycoyote's avatar

Damn @josie!! I curse him! Why did he have to ask this question? Look what he has wrought! Now, late in the evening or night, in the last week of May, there are a whole bunch of jellies who want Thanksgiving dinner so badly we can barely stand it and there’s nothing we can do about it.

I might be able to get something approaching it, at the Boston Market, but I don’t know when they close and I’m already in my jammies.

bkcunningham's avatar

I just thought about something. I have a leftover hambone in the freezer.

laurenkem's avatar

I make turkey about 4 times a year. This feeling just comes over me that I need Thanksgiving food, so I go all out, do the turkey, homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce (from scratch, easiest thing in the world to do!), mashed potatoes, rolls, the whole nine yards.

Then I secretly eat sammichs made with toast, cheddar cheese, turkey fried in butter so the skin is nice and crispy, and bacon.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’m having Edy’s Nestle Butterfinger Ice Cream. It’s so good.

laurenkem's avatar

Jealousy is bad. Be happy that someone else has Butterfinger Ice Cream. Now! I mean it!

bkcunningham's avatar

Mmm. Butterfinger ice cream. I was snacking on Special K Cracker Chips.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Heaven on a spoon.

Coloma's avatar

Hahaha…no, but I have a jar of dark chocolate peanut butter that I have on standby for my midnight snacks. I wake up in the middle of the night and zombie walk to the pantry, have one spoonful of chocolate peanut butter, a big glass of cold water and back to sleep I go.

laurenkem's avatar

My late night ritual consists of a good book, a Toblerone bar and two cats nestled in right next to me.

Everybody that knows me knows you never touch my Toblerone

bkcunningham's avatar

“Heaven on a spoon.” :P THBPBPTHPT

laurenkem's avatar

Why do I feel this overwhelming need for some Butterfinger Ice Cream all of a sudden?

you guys are terrible, lol

heading to 7–11

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@bkcunningham Ha, I got a full tour of Plainville Turkey Farm from the founder back when they were in full swing.

laurenkem's avatar

I think I saw them on some Food Network “special” one night – the restaurant where they serve Thanksgiving dinner 365 days a year. Looked pretty yummy.

Kardamom's avatar

I had cookies and cream ice cream earlier this afternoon. Hadn’t had it in years. It was good.

bkcunningham's avatar

Did it go out of business? When my husband’s niece and nephew drove down a couple of weeks ago, they said it was shutdown. I loved that place. From the waitstaff to the buffet, it was amazing.

Blackberry's avatar

What…..Just…No.

jca's avatar

Gross.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Yes, It’s done. The next generation wanted to try other things.

lillycoyote's avatar

I am going to go to inventory every damn square inch of my kitchen right now. There has to be something in there. And there may be some leftover Halloween candy in the study somewhere. After Halloween, I toss the remaining partial and full bags of candy in there, in a remote corner, behind the desk, hoping to forget about it, so I don’t eat it all at once. God, I hope so… there has to be at least a damn Snickers or Baby Ruth or a Reeses in this house somewhere! Other than that, I’ve got nothing.

Blackberry's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Your generation should be ashamed of themselves.

Just kidding :/

Coloma's avatar

I’m addicted to tootsie pops, mmmm, banana tootsie pops.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Blackberry.I know how to indulge. I should be a little guilty. I don’t give a fuck :)

bkcunningham's avatar

Our New York family said it was because of problems with salmonella in the turkeys. I thought @Blackberry was upset over Plainville closing.

Kardamom's avatar

@Coloma You must made me get a craving for a grape tootsie pop! Or a strawberry Dum-dum lolly. Do they still make Dum-dums? Oh my, now I just remembered those giant charms lollies that were flat on one side and had little rounded bumps on the other side. Droooool

Coloma's avatar

@Kardamom Oooh, I remember Charm pops! Tootsie pops are my diet aide, when I watch a movie I have one or two, only 60 calories each and it keeps my hand out of the popcorn or cookie jar. lol

JLeslie's avatar

No. I would not even put mayo on a turkey sandwich. Gross.

Paradox25's avatar

Just the turkey since I never liked mayo to begin with.

rooeytoo's avatar

Love mayo on the left over turkey with lots of black pepper, sometimes on bread, sometimes not. Turkey is not nearly as popular in Australia as it is in USA. And I have never made one that tasted nearly as good as when my mom made them so I never have it anymore. Except at Subway, I always get turkey and cheese there. Course that is about as much like real turkey as chalk and cheese!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

I’ve never learned to appreciate mayonnaise. Leftover turkey, a fork and the remnants of a jar of Coleman’s mustard is what causes my tastebuds to tango.

lillycoyote's avatar

Eeks! Mayo is the only thing that goes on a turkey sandwich. Mayo on a turkey sandwich, mustard on a ham and swiss, horseradish sauce, mayo if that’s all you have, on a roast beef and swiss and nothing, nothing but oil/herbs on sub. That is the way things are! What is wrong with you people?

:-)

lillycoyote's avatar

@rooeytoo LOL. And I don’t think we feed our dogs nearly as much kangaroo in the U.S. as Aussies do. :-)

ucme's avatar

I tried, but was unable to fit a turkey into the jar.

lillycoyote's avatar

@ucme Then you obviously need a bigger jar. Even a Brit should be able to figure that one out. :-)

ucme's avatar

Or a smaller turkey maybe ;¬}

lillycoyote's avatar

@ucme O.K. Maybe that was a bit of Yankee arrogance. A smaller turkey might very well be a solution to the problem too.

lillycoyote's avatar

@ucme What really matters is that we are allies… it’s the whole “hands across the pond thing” ... we should be able to work together so that we all have a turkeys that are the right size to fit into the jars that we have or be able to make jars big enough to hold the turkeys we have.

But… haven’t you EU folks worked this turkey/jar thing out already? If you leave it to us, to Americans, it could take decades, if not longer.

ucme's avatar

@lillycoyote I agree, fling open the door of oppurtunity….or should we just leave it a-jar?

lillycoyote's avatar

@ucme Until Turkey is a full and equal member of the EU, I think we have to leave it a-jar.

downtide's avatar

I’ve done this on Boxing day (Turkay Day in the UK is Christmas Day, and Boxing Day is the day after). I usually also include some pickled onions too. And the solution to the turkey-not-fitting-in-the-jar is easy. Pour the mayo onto a plate.

bkcunningham's avatar

Good one, @downtide. I pickled some cucumbers, sweet red peppers and onions over the weekend.

MollyMcGuire's avatar

Well, I add a piece of bread.
