I’m sure we all have a bunch of leftovers from yesterdays dinner marathon and no doubt the blogs will be hot today with fantastic recipes on what to do with those leftovers. You can take this post as a bit of tongue in cheek humor against the day after, but feel free to actually make these turkey dinner shots. I think my target audience will be my kids who seem to like anything miniaturised or strange looking especially if they can actually eat it!
I was inspired to post this recipe, if you want to call it that after reading a blog post last night. It was written by a Los Angeles food blogger, Andrew Wilder. He writes for his healthful eating blog, Eating Rules and has also started writing for Blog Tutor. Andrew’s first Blog Tutor post was a great story about how the foodie blog world seems to be getting over saturated with recipes and how this can affect the direction of your own personal blog. When I first started Foodness Gracious I must admit to being hung up on the number of followers I had and being disappointed if I only received a few comments to a post which maybe took me a lot of time to generate, I didn’t understand that building a blog takes time and lots of dedication. Now I’m not so driven by those two elements, I still get excited to welcome a new follower on board but now I see it as an opportunity to gain another friend who shares the same passion towards food as I do. I can honestly say that I enjoy communicating through my blog with some great people from all over the world and hope to meet some of them someday. I try to switch up my posts as much as I can but I think to survive in the food blogging market a true uniqueness has to be shown and I’m constantly thinking about how I can do that.
I don’t want to keep taking Andrew’s points from Blog Tutor, just make sure to pay it a visit and read the whole post for yourself. It certainly made me think and hence the turkey dinner shot was discovered. Is it the first one? Maybe I’ll Google it and see what comes up.
Here’s the recipe:
Take some leftovers and layer them in a shot glass. The process is completely up to you, think about how you would eat the food from a regular plate. Are you a person who likes to try everything separately or like me who puts a little bit of everything on the fork at the same time?
