What To Do With Leftover Thanksgiving Food
Now that you are completely full of food, fun and laughter, it’s time to figure out what to do with all that leftover Thanksgiving food. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but not everyone is going to be pleased about eating the same food for several days in a row. That concept just doesn’t work. Left for too long and you have plenty of good food that goes to waste. Nobody likes wasting food! Especially that deliciousness from Turkey Day.
Once you recognize that you can’t force people to eat the same food until it’s gone, the ideas can begin to flow.
Thanksgiving Leftovers Put To Good Use
Most of the food you have made, can be frozen to compliment another meal, on another day. Turkey, pie, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc. These are all items that freeze and reheat well. They can also be combined in other foods.
For vegetables, you could take them and the turkey with some noodles and make a casserole or soup out of it. In the case that no one wants anymore turkey, substitute chicken and save the turkey.
Unfortunately, there are some dishes that won’t be able to be reused or frozen. One item tends to be green bean casserole. It may survive a few days, but not many have luck getting it to stick for more than that.
In the mood for giving? Be great this season and give someone in need your leftovers. That may seem weird, but those that are truly in need will appreciate anything they can get. Besides if you put it all on covered plates or to go containers, they won’t even know it’s leftover Thanksgiving food. They will just be happy to have something of a Thanksgiving meal!
