I can eat turkey sandwiches for 3 or 4 days. The rest gets old after 2-3 days. By then I'm craving something spicy. If there is still turkey leftover, I chop it up and dump it in the turkey stock I make with the carcass. Sometimes if there is a lot leftover I divide the turkey stock and turkey pieces for soup or turkey and noodles at a later date. It all goes into the freezer.

Probably tonight--and definitely tomorrow--other foods will put in an appearance. That's pretty normal here--still enjoying the TG food but getting ready to move on. Since I'm not into cooking I don't make turkey this or that or freeze a bunch of stuff.

I bought the TG take-out meal on Wednesday night and had toasted turkey sandwiches (with sides, of course) Thursday, Friday and today. (Last year was the first year I started right in with the sandwiches because I don't care about slices of turkey by themselves.)

There isn't a lot left so it's working out fine. Turkey will be finished up today; there's still bit of mac'n'cheese left and a small side of sweet potato casserole nobody has gotten into yet. Plus a bit of pie...I may have to swing by and get a little more of that because it was really good this year!

Our leftovers are gone by Saturday night. I eat one mid-afternoon meal of leftovers and then have a piece of pie in the evening on both Friday and Saturday.

I actually enjoy leftovers much, much more than the actual TG day dinner as I am so tired from cooking by the time I sit down.

Today, Saturday, was my last day to have leftovers. I am over turkey and the sides.

That's how I usually am...just about 2 days after TG & I'm ready for something else. Bring on the pizza or Chinese food, ha!
Cheer up, it's Christmas soon, and you can do the whole thing again.

The mashed potatoes, cranberry relish, and pie are fine by me until they're gone. I never want to see another piece of turkey or squash again.

I love Thanksgiving leftovers and put together 3-4 individual meals with turkey plus the sides and stick them in the freezer, working my way through them through the end of the year.

I eat them the day after and freeze the remainder of the turkey in small packages for later.
