Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you’ve had a fabulous day with your family and friends and really celebrating the good things in your life.
More than likely you’ll have a ton of leftovers, especially if you’re hosting. Thanksgiving leftovers are delicious on their own, but there are also recipes you can use to use up Thanksgiving leftovers and make something entirely new—this will keep the kids from complaining while also helping the grocery budget. If you ended up cooking for an army, another option is to freeze portions of the original dish for later. You could eat it for lunch some time or even recreate Thanksgiving dinner if you have enough!
