In the case of this recent roasted turkey, I bought it JUST to make leftovers for the freezer.

The turkey strata came out fine and I'll have leftovers to freeze for a ready made meal.

Next will probably be MsMofet's Confetti Soup with turkey and Wild Rice.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

My DH nuked me some of the leftover barely and chicken soup while I was feeling ill and incapable of any cooking. It was perfect. I was glad it was in the freezer.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

If I have leftovers from a turkey dinner, I make "turkey dinner pies". Something I came up with the day before I went into labour with my daughter. I cooked a huge dinner just for hubby and I (nesting, obviously!), and had bought a bunch of frozen Tenderflake pie shells. With the leftovers, I layered them into the pie shells (pulled turkey, gravy, veggies, stuffing, more gravy, mashed potatoes and then cheese). I made a few of them, covered them with foil and put them in the freezer. Then we had lots to eat after bringing my little one home.
They are so tasty, we actually enjoyed them as much or more than the actual turkey dinner!
