Turkey sammys drowning in gravy, no doubt. After that, probably a freezer bag of turkey that will suffer from severe freezer burn and eventually be thrown out. Status quo around here!

We cook a big enough bird and dressing to have plenty of leftovers, which are carefully wrapped, labeled and frozen to reappear on Christmas Day so Christmas dinner isn't a major production.

More turkey dinners, turkey sandwiches, tetrazzini... and I hope to make this Turkey Spinach Salad in Parmesan Bowls. I like the leftovers and not having to cook for a few days. This one sounds good too - Leatherstocking Pancake Salad.

Thanksgiving evening I like to eat it cold along with a couple rolls and cranberry salad. The next night or two I like turkey in gravy over dressing (sometimes I freeze the turkey and have this later). The last night of left-overs, I usually do turkey and noodles (I guess you could say turkey-noodle soup, but heavier on the noodles and lighter on the soup).

Dh keeps talking about enchiladas but hopefully we'll have enough to have some other things as well. Mish's salad looks good and I'd love a good turkey noodle soup recipe (hint hint).

I have a whole list of things that can be made with leftover turkey. For me, I like to make a BIG batch of turkey-noodle soup, also heavy on the turkey and noodles, light on the soup. PeppA, my MIL, and the old boys will probably end up eating most of the leftover turkey, dressing, and gravy, for a couple days afterwards. I miss my Mom's turkey enchiladas. Maybe I'll get the stuff to make a batch, and do that shortly afterwards.

What is this leftover turkey you speak of?

I've never seen that at our house.

With all the kids and grandkids, plus mom, my sister and her daughter, there isn't all that much left over..I usually hide several slices of the white meat and make DH and I a sandwich with dressing, cranberries,mayo, and lettuce or with hot gravey..plus we warm up any leftover ravs and dressing as well...But the kids all take home ravs,stuffed onions,or zukes,turkey,stuffing,gravey foccacia,so as you can guess our table groans on the big bird day..Soup,enchilladas, all the other goodies you all mentioned..In my dreams or at an eat out place..We hit things around here likea swarm of locusts

They do sell plastic-ware though that will serve the same purpose!

I love those!
