SIL sent us down the street to our house with enough turkey and stuffing/dressing/fill for supper tonight. I emptied out two partial bags of French green beans into a pot (gotta keep tract of my inventory better...), and heated up the turkey with a jar of turkey gravy. That, plus two slices of pumpkin pie that were included in our care package, and we were happy and full.

SIL kept the carcass. She had better make stock!

I was looking over the Land of Lakes site. They have a recipe for leftover turkey pizza. In fact they have a lot of recipes for leftover turkey and other foods from Thanksgiving. But I liked the idea of the pizza. You can use flat bread for individual pizzas or regular dough for a large pizza. I didn't take the time to read the recipes but the pictures looked interesting. I would think you could use the cranberry sauce spread out for the sauce and then place your left over veggies, turkey, stuffing, gravy and other foods on top. Or even just use your gravy as the base sauce.

Looking for a family night in the kitchen? Let each family member make their own pizza with the flat bread. Take a look at the LOL site and see what they suggest.

Got the smoked carcass in the pot along with roasted carrots, onions, celery and garlic cloves. Since we misplaced our leftovers, I will make GRAVY, some Stovetop stuffing and Idahoan mashed potatoes later.

We didn't bring home any turkey and I'm feeling deprived. I planned ahead though, and I'll be cooking this little baby tomorrow.

Had enough leftovers to make myself a plate for my lunch at work yesterday. Perfect! Shrek has enough breast meat for a few sandwiches.

I have eaten turkey and the trimmings for every meal since Thurs.
I have the carcass in the fridge with plenty bones and some dark meat. (my sister took all the white meat when she left and we did not know until the next day when I wanted a sandwich). This has happened before and i always say I'm going to immediately put half the breast away for us. I forgot and we have no white meat left.
Tomorrow i will make stock. What I do with the stock is not decided.

We had leftover turkey dinner last night. Then I felt the need for red meat tonight. Back to leftovers tomorrow. I'll be making stock with the carcass and stock into turkey noodle soup for dinner.

I ate Shrek's leftover portion, he really does not like leftovers, so I knew I would throw it away before he ever thought of eating it. He's having a turkey sandwich with half a can of cranberry sauce.
