First, let me thank Houston for taking on last week’s post for me. My computer decided it didn’t want to work at the last minute, but I think it’s all good now.
Alright, Turkey Day’s finally over. Now you’ve got tons of leftovers stuck in the fridge and you have no idea what to do with them.
Don’t worry, we can help.
This week I asked them:
What's the best thing to do with all those Thanksgiving leftovers?
Answers after the jump:
• Justin: Well, I think it's obvious that you should EAT your Thanksgiving leftovers. Yea, I know, DUH!
Most of the other stuff is always good, but I usually make a veggie soup with the leftover turkey. Just use a chicken and veggie soup recipe and sub the turkey. It's just as good.
• Jen: I am a thanksgiving leftover fanatic. There is no point in having thanksgiving if there will be no leftovers. I prefer to recreate the meal as exactly as it was originally served, each item disappearing as they are completely consumed. Until finally, I am left with just turkey. Then I start having turkey sandwiches with miracle whip and iceberg lettuce and salt and pepper. Maybe some yellow American cheese, but probably not. I don’t do the casseroles or the soups, or the fried stuffing pancakes. I like the original and stay with it as long as I can.
• Kristin: Leftovers are for eating. Mmmm. My mom makes kick-ass turkey tacos.
• Stephanie: Um, eat them? I am not the creative type who plans elaborate schemes to disguise the fact that one is nomming three-day old stuffing...then again, I am not ever going to encourage a giant get-together involving the production of vast amounts of stuffing, so this isn't my fault anyway. Place leftovers on plate. Apply heat if desired. Consume. Repeat as necessary?
• Michelle: Holiday leftovers? Two words: food fight!
