You know the Thanksgiving drill. After Thanksgiving there’s all these leftovers, especially turkey. Turkey pot pie, turkey ala mode, turkey sandwiches, turkey ceviche. Okay, maybe not the turkey ala mode or turkey ceviche. But we all have been there, sick to death of turkey and all the myriad leftovers that come after Thanksgiving.
So, what’s a frugal gal to do? Throw a post-Thanksgiving leftover party. Have everyone bring over their Thanksgiving leftovers and have a potluck. Then, when the party’s over and there are *still* leftovers, trade with your friends. Maybe you love Marge’s hash brown casserole and Lisa loves your deep fried turkey. Why not trade? I’ve always found someone else’s leftovers are always better than my own leftovers. Be sure to have lots of take-home containers for people. I like to use old cool-whip containers for free take-home containers.
Just make sure you send out invites early in the month so people will be able to remember to save some leftovers for your party!
