Ahhh Thanksgiving. A time for giving thanks, spending time with family or your community, and of course, a time to make the biggest meals you’ll make all year. Copious amounts of delicious food Monday night leads to plenty of delicious leftovers for Tuesday lunch, and Tuesday dinner, and Wednesday lunch and...well let’s be honest, Wednesday dinner. And by day three, no matter how good the food is, our guess is that you’ll be ready to move on from the whole ordeal. So we’ve compiled a list of ways to use up those lasting leftovers and freshen up your palate, all while still clearing out the fridge.
