I had some turkey, stuffing, and rice from lunch yesterday, with gravy all over it. We usually have a lot more leftovers than this. I put some stuffing aside for the pork roast I plan on making today.

I love Thanksgiving and I can not wait for Turkey and all other goods things to eat but ours is not until next month.

It's always delicious, especially if it's homemade. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving when it comes.

OMG, you're making me hungry! I have this once a year too but in Nov in the states (of course) and after alot of killjoy going on within my family I finally get to eat it if it isn't made terribly wrong (on occasion it has been known to happen). The leftovers are still delicious in most cases. I couldn't have it for breakfast but will eat stuff like that for lunch. I'm at least making pork chops tomorrow with a new rosemary/garlic pre-made bread crumb mixture which I'm dying to try out. And mom made her 1-3 X a year Zita pasta with ricotta cheese yesterday which was yummy, she only usually makes that on a holiday or two, no idea what made her jump at the chance to make it yesterday but whose complaining, it was still pretty good. Not as good as other times she's made it but good. She might be losing her touch a lil. I want to try my lasagna roll ups again with spinach and cottage cheese but there are two of them here who won't touch spinach. :( I only made them for me last time and froze the rest for later.

Although if I make home-made cranberry sauce like last year I could probably eat those over crepes or pancakes perhaps for breakfast.

I know a few years the turkey wasnt cooked or the dressing was burnt. OMG! that sounds so good, I love pasta. I make canaloni all the time with spinach,a dn cottage cheese, then sauce and cheese ontop. Everyone was like that here, until i pureed the spinach and they didnt even notice it, until after they ate it. I would love to make homemade cranberry sauce, and crepes yummy.

You're making me hungry, and jealous. We don't really have a proper thanksgiving here, unless we go to my aunt's. I don't really WANT to go there as there are so many people there and it gets over crowded and just, that's not my scene. I may talk to my grandmother about this year having just us here if we can split the bill and I pay for half she pays for half. Anyway enjoy your left overs. My favorite is always the stuffing!

We use to go to my aunt's and it was always so busy and boring. I found myself staring at the wall for hours. Whereas this year I could go to my room and be online. I hope you can stay home and relax with a nice meal.

Good you are having left over and you doing something creative with it. I too sometimes have lots of leftovers but I don't have anything creative to do with it. .Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

I try to use up the leftovers so I'm not wasting the food.

Thanksgiving leftovers are yummy. I'll have to wait for a few more weeks before I can enjoy them, though, since I'm in the U.S. I generally cook Tofurkey each year--and have been doing so for about eight or nine years. The sides vary each year. It really depends on what is available in the area in which I am living.

It is great that you are using the leftovers instead of letting them go to waste as so many people have a tendency of doing. I like the idea of using some of the leftover stuffing to go with a pork roast. I know that it is nice to get accustomed to having a lot of leftovers after Thanksgiving, but not having all of those leftovers means that there is less chance of having food to go to waste. Besides that, I can't speak for everyone, but I really do have a tendency of getting burnt out on the leftovers after Thanksgiving dinner.

sounds tasty! we had two Thanksgiving dinners. one with my mom (she came to our house) and one with my inlaws and the family (there were 24 of us) and there was turkey, meatloaf and beef and tons left over, so my brother in law packaged up a lot of the left overs and sent them with my daughter (i did the same) and she took them back to school. she will probably be eating left overs all week!

I often would have leftovers after Christmas and after Thanksgiving. As a child I thought "boring" as an adult I think "yum". It seems we often have enough for a couple of days.
