Last week I challenged you to do something creative with your Thanksgiving Day leftovers. Based on the response rate to this contest, I have arrived at three conclusions: 1) you ate everything on Thanksgiving day and had no leftovers; or 2) you enjoy eating your Thanksgiving leftovers as they are; or 3) you forgot to snap a photo of your creative Thanksgiving leftover meal. Nevertheless, here are a few dishes that I witnessed–can you spot all the Thanksgiving elements?
In addition, a reader told me that she used her leftover turkey to make the Comforting Turkey Stew that Alex made a few weeks ago. She even used a sweet potato to thicken it instead of heavy cream. Lovely!
And that’s the extent of what I know about your Thanksgiving leftovers. I trust they were delicious! Any amusing anecdotes to share? Are you still eating your leftovers even a week later? Leave a comment to tell us about it. Perhaps we’ll try another photo challenge in the future. Either way, I’m still thankful for you, reader!
P.S. I suppose it’s time to start thinking about food for the winter holidays. Stay tuned for my ideas and adventures! (But if you want a head start on some ideas for cookies and other sweet treats, check out one of my favorite confectionery blogs here who is doing a “cookiemas” countdown).
