Happy day after Thanksgiving!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with lots of good food. We had another small Thanksgiving this year, but it was still filled with a lot of food. I think we’re going to be eating leftovers for the rest of the week. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
And even though we didn’t get a turkey this year and opted for ham instead, I’m sure you’re wondering what you can do with all those leftover turkey that you might have. So, I compiled a list of some of my favorite leftover turkey recipes, just in case you need them.
