20 Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas

Simply stated...the BEST thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers! For days after, our bodies are on a strict diet of turkey, potatoes, stuffing (and PIE!!!) as we stretch every last bite of our feast to get the most out of our WEEKS worth of preparation-and not to mention-pocketbook!

I mentioned before that you would {probably} never see another recipe on my blog again, but that {probably} is takin' a hike for today as I share TWENTY (2.0.) of the most interesting, and mouthwatering, Thanksgiving Leftover dishes I could find. Thanksgiving leftover are delicious, but even straight up turkey gets old after a few days so here are some fantastic ways to re-invent your feast and get the MOST outta whatchya got!

Thank you so much for stopping in today, I hope you have a WONDERFUL, family/friend filled Thanksgiving! I'm off now to take care of my sick husband-which is the equivalent of 3 sick children (I swear he takes the moaning up a notch as soon as I walk in the room) AND my 2 sick kiddos (whom I actually DO feel bad for) so I can get all five three of my whiners better before tomorrow!!! Happy Eating (and eating and eating and eating) :)
