I love this time of year! It makes me so giddy inside! I love the changing of the seasons, and pumpkins and the changing of leaves. I love the holidays; Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and of course my birthday (yep my birthday is a national holiday if you all didn’t know! HAHAHA) I love all the decorations, and food, and traditions. I love it all!
And for me I think it is so awesome that I live so close to my family and ‘in-laws’ that we make it work to spend some of each of the holidays with each family. And I love that I get to experience the food and traditions of both families!
And because Eric and I both have large families there is always a TON of food. And a TON of food means a TON of leftovers! Of course these leftovers are perfect just reheated, or made into a traditional turkey sandwich (I love sandwiches made with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, and look forward to them all year), but depending on your crowd and the amount of turkey you have left over you might want a few more options to use it up.
So this week, while all the other blogs, food TV shows, and recipe websites feature your typical Thanksgiving day menu ideas I will be focusing on the day after! Which means this week is left over turkey recipe week!
