Thanksgiving is a great food holiday. It’s a wonderful feast that brings family together but then everyone stresses out about what to do with leftovers afterwards. At first I was going to write a bunch of ideas for what to do with left over turkey, cranberry sauce, etc. but I noticed a better idea: more gathering and sharing!

We had so much dessert at Aunt Ilene’s house that she decided to have neighbors over for canasta today to help finish off desserts like Chocolate Trifle, Apple Crumb Pie, Pumpkin Roll, Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies, Cranberry Apple Pie, Berry Pie, Chocolate Bundt Cake, and a Herbie (Lon’s mom’s famous pie that tastes like chocolate chip cookie dough with a Kahlua Whip Cream). Kasi also mentioned that she is going to her friend Becca’s house tomorrow to help finish left-overs over there.

If you have left-overs, call some friends and have a left-overs potluck. Then you won’t get sick of eating the same thing for the next week. If there’s still food left-over, you can all swap some food and have new left-overs.
