Leftover transformations....(Happy Meme Day 5)

Since my sister cooked the Thanksgiving dinner, I didn't have turkey out of my system yet so I cooked a turkey over the holidays. This of course generated lots of leftovers.

I try to be creative.

A personal family favorite is a recipe I modified for turkey enchiladas, spicing them up with cayenne pepper. This year, I experimented turkey jambalaya, with a heavy hand on the cayenne pepper, which may become a new family favorite.

I also found a recipe for Mexican chocolate cookies, also with cayenne....

Yes, cayenne makes me happy.
