Never. I use the leftovers in a variety of ways, although we rarely have leftovers. I tend to make just enough for the day.

I'm not either. I don't keep any type of leftovers past the third day. I will freeze or toss anything before that if I know I won't eat it by the third day.

Beware of things with mayonnaise or milk. That can spoil quickly.

Actually one meal is enough but we don't waste anything that has not spoiled and normally nothing is lost. We find ways to incorporate different leftovers into a different dish making it better for us.

I split the leftovers with my daughter, and we finish every bit. I never get tired of the dressing and wish i could make it more often in the year! But then I'd need gravy. And for that I'd need another Turkey......anyway, leftovers are never tossed. We will toss in a different meal to break the pattern.

Great on the comments, guys!

Now for Christmas Day meal, I have no idea if I'll have leftovers. I may order from a restaurant as I often have.

sadly, we run out of leftovers before we get tired of them.
Except white meat turkey, there's always too much of that, but I freeze it in and use in soups and sauces.

It's right after TG 2023.

I still feel the same way as when I started this thread. I can eat leftovers 2 days after TG, which I did this time, but on the 3rd day after (Sunday), I'm ready for something else!

Half of a smoked/grilled breast was the only leftover.

I do NOT enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers largely due my MIL.


My MIL used to prepare a 24# turkey whether there would be 4 of us or 24 of us. That means we would get a Thanksgiving dinner for lunch and one for dinner until everything was used up. No, she did NOT use the turkey in another way. No, it was a replication of the same meal, over and over again. One night, I said "enough is enough" and I told my wife that I would go out for dinner.

There are only so many meals that I can eat a lot of turkey and ALL of the starchy side dishes associated with Thanksgiving. My body starts to revolt.

That night, I had a huge salad, a bowl of turnip greens, and ONE biscuit and really enjoyed it.

=====================

For Thanksgiving, we had a small salad, baked salmon, baked sweet potatoes, green beans, and a slice of cherry pie. There were no leftovers by design.
