November Kitchenettes & Recipe

Turkey Turnovers

These delectable treats are usually made with chicken - but, we adapted them to honor the star of a Thanksgiving table - the turkey! This delicious recipe is courtesy of Susan Garces - one of the Kitchenette Mamas!

2 c Turkey Meat - shredded
4 oz. Cream Cheese - softened (plain or w/ onions)
1 T Sour Cream
Salt, Pepper, Rosemary (to taste)
2 pkg. Crescent Rolls
2 c Stuffing Mix - coarsely crushed
Melted Butter

Mix together turkey, cream cheese, sour cream and seasonings.
Fill each crescent roll with 1 T mixture.
Fold up crescent rolls and pinch closed to seal.
Dip each turnover in melted butter and roll in stuffing mix.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake @ 375 for 12 minutes. (or until nicely golden brown)
Serve with gravy.

Melt 1/2 stick butter in a saucepan - add 3-5 T flour and brown in butter. Slowly add 1-2 cans chicken broth, whisking continuously to melt away any lumps - simmer until thickened.

Thanksgiving Table

The theme for November's Hospitality Club Meeting was Thanksgiving! We celebrated the holiday by cooking a scrumptious feast and then enjoying the fruits of our labor gathered together around the table. This was a meal worthy of candlelight, my favorite harvest china, crystal, fine cutlery and cloth napkins.

Our menu was all homemade delights that each girl prepped, cooked, baked and presented to make our day very memorable.

We spent time talking about the blessings the Lord has bestowed upon our club and how we are using what God has put inside of us to reach out to others. The Kitchenettes shared what they are thankful for and the importance of always having an attitude of gratitude.

The highlight of the day was making our "thank you" gift for Mr. Henry who so graciously treated us to the best day at his restaurant in October. We hand painted an apron with all of our names to present as appreciation for his generosity.

Psalm 107:1
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Psalm 100:4
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
