Spent Grain Oatmeal Cookie

Spent Grain Oatmeal Cookie

Normally after brewing, I toss all my spent grains.  I never gave it much thought; grains, at least the amounts I use, do not cost all that much.  Still, it is waste full just discarding the grains when they can have a second life.  So, after brewing a Scottish Ale I processed the grains (see how here) and used a portion to make (mostly) healthy cookies.

Leftover Turkey

Unfortunately, I spent my Thanksgiving night at work, but lucky for me I came home the next morning to a mountain of leftover turkey. Truth is, I don’t actually care for turkey all that much. I really wish the tradition was ham. So, my challenge was to figure out how to use all the turkey. After rummaging through the fridge I came up with three dishes that also utilized other leftovers: Turkey Skillet, Turkey and Beans, and Turkey Salad.
