12 ways with thanksgiving leftovers

November 17, 2013

When my husband and I moved into our first home together, we decided to host Thanksgiving for our whole family.  For our little home, and our little kitchen, it was a tall order but we were all to pleased to do it.  I can’t lie, I was just as much excited about the leftovers as I was the original meal itself.  All of the possibilities!  And I have this whole neuroses about eating the same thing two days in a row.  When our first Thanksgiving meal in our new home was all wrapped up, I fixed up stuff like croquettes, soup, and potato pancakes.

So, for your viewing and post-Thanksgiving eating pleasure, here are a few (ok, a dozen…options are good) leftover recipes that I myself would love to try!
