What will you read next? #LitRing #GreatPrizes

What Will You Read Next?
by Jacquie Rogers

Have you recovered from the holidays yet?  We're still mopping up around here.  Yes, our tree is still up.  Sigh.  But the kitchen is clean even though the refrigerator is stuffed to the gills.  Our poor wallets sure take a beating in December, don't they?  Might take a few months to recover from that hit, because we also have five birthdays in December.  Luckily, none in January.  Whew!

Maybe it's time to sit down and read a great book, so how about getting something for yourself?  I'm participating in the What Will You Read Next? -- Quiz and Giveaway, by LitRing.  The prizes are mind-boggling:
  • 1 $500 gift card
  • 4 $100 gift cards
  • 1 Kindle Fire
  • 1 Nook Color
  • 1 iPad Mini
  • 1 Kobo Aura
All you have to do is take a fun quiz.  How cool is that?

While you're reading, you need something to eat, right?  And you have leftover turkey.  So how about some turkey/cranberry salad?

3 cups turkey (1/4 cubes, or pulled)
1 cup dried cranberries, um, or more
1 cup minced celery
1/2 cup minced white onion

2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste (we like lots of pepper)

Mix dressing ingredients, then stir into salad ingredients.  Chill for a couple hours to give the cranberries time to soften.  Serve!  Tastes good by itself or in a sandwich.

Happy reading and eating!

  1. Happy New Year, Jacquie, and thanks for the recipe! Sounds like a great giveaway.

  2. When I'm reading I need chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. But I'll certainly try your recipe for a lunch since it sounds delicious. Thanks.

  3. We had ham for Christmas and finally finished that--although I love it and was sorry when it was gone. We always leave our tree up until Twelfth Night, but sometimes longer. Lots longer. LOL If I could, I'd leave it up all year. I love Christmas decorations.
