Your houseguests have gone and you’re back to your regular routine with laundry to do and enough turkey to eat until Christmas. So rather than serve your family yet another boring turkey sandwich, here’s Creamy Turkey Tetrazzini to the rescue!
Last year my kids refused to eat Thanksgiving dinner because they were having too much fun playing with our friends that we were hosting. I slaved all day just to have them throw a full-on temper tantrum and request chocolate chips as their meal. Since we had company over, I weighed my odds and decided that a pleasant conversation with the adults outweighed winning the battle of my kids eating their food. I wanted to enjoy at least some of the fruits of my labor!
I succumbed and let them eat a plate full of chocolate chips for dinner. Mother of the year over here, people. You win some, you lose some. I made sure to take a picture to document the chaotic moment and save it for blackmail when the kids are older. When I made this Creamy Turkey Tetrazzini a couple days later, they gobbled it up without complaint.

: The great thing about this dish is that you can throw in whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand. Broccoli, peas, carrots, celery, mushrooms – the possibilities are endless.
