thanksgiving leftovers

The words Thanksgiving and leftovers go together! However, you won't be eating turkey sandwiches for the remainder of the week if you have nothing to store the leftover turkey in. And of course, you don't want to throw out that leftover cranberry or corn or any of it.

Keep in mind that if you plan to send some leftovers home with the guests, you will need to have some "throw-away" containers that you can pack for them to take and keep.

So what can you do with all your holiday leftovers?

Obviously, you can turn the leftovers into sandwiches, salads, soups, casseroles and other delicious “post-holiday” meals. Make sure you freeze some of the meals for later.

Another idea is to shred a bunch of turkey and freeze it in 1 or 2 cup portions. Then when you have a recipe that calls for cooked chicken/turkey, just pull some out of the freezer.
