What to do with Thanksgiving leftovers…

This is a great time of year to spend time with family and friends and make wonderful memories. However, the highlight of these gatherings is no doubt the delicious meals and seasonal desserts, but only during the holidays is it possible to eat more food than you normally do and have more leftovers than usual. After your guests leave with take-home boxes, you almost always have more leftovers then you know what to do with. Check out this website for ideas on how to reuse your signature holiday dishes! Tired of the traditional after-Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches? Turn your holiday turkey into a Tex-Mex dish by following this yummy recipe!
