Now is a good time to start planing a Thanksgiving leftover party. When I have one, I plan it for the Saturday after Thanksgiving when everyone’s all shopped out and too tired to cook. The premise is this: everyone brings their leftovers and you eat what’s there. Any leftover leftovers are packaged up and given to someone else. I don’t know what is so awesome about other people’s leftovers, but I have noticed that other people’s leftovers are a lot more appealing than your own leftovers.
This probably won’t save you from the litany of turkey pot pie, turkey sandwiches, turkey ala king, turkey ala mode, turkey lurkey, turkey soup, etc. But it does at least give you something new to look forward to eating.
Tell me, Home Eccers, how do you deal with all the leftovers?
