It is actually fun to watch the cats when they pull at the little pieces of meat. They almost look like wild cats. I don't have any cats now, so when we finish cleaning the meat from the bones, it goes in the trash too. I even use a disposable pan so I can toss that in the trash too.

I got a kick out of my two with the ham, they were purring as they ate. I'd never heard them do that before.

My cat we used to have would so that with the crispy skin from salmon. So cute. Those little wild animals! LOL

Another idea re leftovers... I watched the local News prior to Thanksgiving, & a chef added beaten eggs etc. to leftover stuffing to make stuffing dumplings for turkey soup.

I alway put the remaining turkey in the fridge after the meal.

The following morning, I strip and package the meat for sandwiches and leftover dishes.

The carcass then goes into the pot and gets basically cooked to death. It's done when the bones fall apart.

I then strain off the stock, throwing all the rest away. I don't pick bother to pick out the bits of meat, I've got plenty of meat left.

I love using turkey stock to make beans, soups and stews. Very rich.

We went to a very nice family gathering on Thursday, and brought home to BIL's the turkey carcass that was about to be pitched. I found a big pot at his house, added some herbs, onion, celery, and cooked the heck out of it. Then refrigerated, scooped the fat off it the next day and stuck it in BIL's freezer in a ziplock.

That's how I make turkey stock too. It's just not worth the effort to pick all the near tasteless bits of meat out. The flavor has already gone to the broth anyway.

Thanksgiving soup!! I make dumplings out of the leftover stuffing (just mix in some egg whites, depending on how much you have, and brown in a frying pan), and add any leftover veggies, and cranberry. (Also add celery, poultry seasonings, carrots, onions... You know, soup stuff) Mmmmm

I'm usually back at work the next day. Have to get that done the night before. Oh well.on-starter for me this year anyway. I did ham and had no problem getting it broke down for the next meals.
