What To Do with Those Leftovers

Hope all my truckbuddies are having a good turkey day.  M. P. is dining with his four children, their spouses, and their mother today; we will have our own turkey feast next week.  But in the meantime, here are some really good ideas for all those leftovers you are wondering what to do with.  Enjoy.

Note: For the turkey roll-ups, instead of crescent rolls you can also use plain biscuits, rolled flat and cut into squares or triangles. These make great snacks or sandwiches.

Breaking news out of Alaska: Noted Christianist, TV dancer, and unwed mother Bristol Palin is pregnant - and unmarried - again. And her righteous, God-fearing, Bible-believing, gun-toting, born-again mother says that is just oh-so-wonderful, and best of all, God is totally fine with it, too. Heck yeah! Jump ahead to the 3:20 mark:

Meanwhile in Ireland, that country's first same-sex marriage took place today as Cormac Gollogly and Richard Dowling, a barrister and a banker, tied the knot in County Tipperary, after 12 years as a committed couple, as reported by the Irish Times. All good wishes to the happy couple.

I could say more, but I'll let you fellas judge for yourselves which story is praiseworthy and which is just total bullshit.
