After T-day, I'm pretty much done with turkey. I prefer the ham. After the third day, I'm ready for something else. But I can eat mashed potatoes and candied yams longer than I can the meat.

I'm sick of it before Thanksgiving.

The only reason I eat any turkey is because I found a way to cook it without choking it down.



I'd rather have Stone Soup over turkey any day.

We have a few lunches left....either cold sandwiches or hot turkey sandwiches, so after today is it. We’ll finish off the vegetables with a steak tonight.

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!

Well, we had exactly enough food to last for 2 days after, which was perfect because I'm ready for different food anyway (today's Sun morning )!

I eat turkey year-round anyway, so a good turkey sandwich & ground turkey tacos are eaten quite often. And I can make my homemade macaroni salad whenever so no big deal there either. Stuffing & cranberry sauce are the only two TG foods I eat at TG time.

Ha, we actually had a little sushi as well at our TG table for all to enjoy! (We only eat the non-raw type, BTW.)

But, we don't always stick w/ "traditional TG foods" every single year. We can have Chinese food & still be just as happy.

We don't get tired of them either. Most of them are one-time-a-year foods that we look forward to so they're a special treat. And turkey is versatile so what we want to keep may go directly into the freezer if we don't want any more right now.

There's this Bachelor Son who is an eating machine and Chef Daughter who will take anything left over, including the bones, for some creative enterprise. Any other guests are also welcome to take home a package.

My mom used to make a ham and a turkey and then after Thanksgiving have guests for croque monsieur That was so much fun and a very tasty way to use the leftovers.

We had no leftovers this year, went to a friends, & declined her offer of taking home a plate. In past years where we have cooked, we just eat them till they are gone, Important to not cook too much, if it is just the two of us, I will only cook a breast, so it will feed us for a couple of days. I liek cold turkey, so it is not a problem.

I am good for weeks. I never get sick of Thanksgiving leftovers. I miss them as soon as they are gone.

We usually don't really have any. We haven't bought a full turkey in years, just a turkey breast, and most of it is gone in the one meal and if not it is finished up in one more. Sometimes we end up with some extra in sides but we usually get everyone to take a plate home with them and then we'll save enough for maybe one or two more servings for ourselves and just discard the rest if there is still any - usually not much because we try to make portions to mostly be used up in the meal.
