Curried Turkey Pita

We celebrated Thanksgiving at my parent’s house with fabulous food and plenty of leftovers.  I had my fill of turkey and Thanksgiving leftovers in the days that followed, so you can imagine my dismay when I returned home to find an entire uncooked turkey waiting for me in my refrigerator.  The last thing I felt like doing the weekend AFTER Thanksgiving (the weekend I should be unpacking, organizing, and decorating for Christmas) was cooking a turkey.  However I do love my husband (the husband who loves a good turkey and will eat Thanksgiving food long after the holiday has passed) so for him I slathered it with butter and herbs and roasted it to perfection.  Last night we had round two of “Thanksgiving dinner” and today with the leftovers, I made this Curried Turkey Pita for lunch.  If you happen to have anymore leftover turkey in your house, I recommend you do the same :)

Curried Turkey Pita
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
2 cups shredded roasted turkey
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3 sliced celery stalks
1 sliced green onion
salt and pepper to taste
´╗┐Combine all ingredients.
Spoon into pita halves and enjoy!

    How yummy!!! I just shredded and mixed the remainder of our turkey with mayo last night , so now I'll just add the rest of the ingredients for a more delicious lunch. The dried cranberries add such a pretty touch of color! Thanks Allie, you've done it again:)
