With Thanksgiving leftovers filling the fridge, we’re all thinking about how to use those leftovers. Be sure to use them before you loose them!
My first recommendation is to freeze several servings of the sides together in a sealed container and pull them out next week on a busy day when you don’t have time to cook. They will taste better then and save you time as the busy holiday activities begin. Turkey can be frozen and I recommend dicing it first or cutting it into cubes so that it can easily be added to soups, casseroles, or salads. Here are just a few great recipes that will accommodate substituting leftover turkey:

With Thanksgiving just days away, you need to buy the turkey. If haven’t purchased your turkey – today’s the day! Most turkeys are purchased frozen and need several days to thaw. While there are several methods for thawing a turkey the safest is in the refrigerator. It is important to allow about 24 hours for every 4-5lb of turkey. So if you purchase a 14-16lb turkey it could take up to 4 days to completely thaw and a 20lb. bird 4-5 days. A thawed turkey can remain in the refrigerator for a couple of days but a frozen turkey can’t be stuffed or roasted, so be sure to pick up a turkey soon and store it in the fridge!Read More
