5 Turkey Leftover Ideas + Giveaway

Last week we had the absolute best time having a friends turkey dinner. The idea of roasting a turkey mid-week seemed a bit bonkers, but it was great because we all went home with a tonne of leftovers! YEAY! The best part of having a turkey is the leftovers and incorporating them into your everyday meals is surprisingly easy. With there being 5 of us at Alberta Mama’s we thought it would be a fun idea to each take our leftovers and use them to create a “typical leftover meal,” something that would typically get made in our homes. It’s actually quite telling of each family’s personality.

The Newborn Sleep Guide

In the Words of Dr. Harvey Karp “Your babies nine months – or three trimesters – inside you is a time of unbelievable complex development.  Never less, it takes a baby an additional three months to “wake up” and become active partners in the relationship. This time between birth and the end of your baby’s third month is what I call your baby’s fourth trimester.”

Congrats mama on your new baby and welcome to the 4th trimester!  It has always been so amazing to me how in a matter of minutes a new person is welcomed into the world.  That moment when you see their face for the first time really tops the cake for experiences you will go through in your lifetime.  The newborn smell… ahhhh, nothing better! I am excited to welcome you into the world of motherhood as a first-time mama or a mama of more!

How To Make Perfect Bone Broth From Scratch

Bone Broth has become very trendy in recent months. The health benefits of this simple dish our Grandmothers have been making for years are hard to ignore. Who doesn’t want better gut health and great skin? There are so many reasons to drink more broth but the main one we like is that it tastes good. It is delicious on its own, is a great base for soups, and can be added to gravy’s and sauces easily. Last week we hosted an Alberta Mamas Turkey Dinner with Alberta Turkey (see more on that post and what we made here) and as delicious the whole meal was I was mostly excited for the bones of the turkey so I could make bone broth the next day.
