Welcome to the fifth day of the Frugal Thanksgiving Mini Series! So far we have shared some of our best frugal Thanksgiving Side Dishes, Desserts, Craft/Decorating ideas, and Family Traditions. (don’t worry, if you are coming late to the party, you can still link your side dish, dessert, craft/decorating idea, or tradition to the Mr. Linkys on those days).
Most of us tend to be. . . well. . . shall we say. . . . a little exuberant when it comes to cooking our Thanksgiving dinner. We want to make sure no one goes hungry, so there is plenty to eat the day of, and the next day, and the next.
So what to do?
There are the obvious ways to use them up-Hot Turkey Sandwiches and a really kick butt pot of Homemade Turkey Soup. As they say on the Ginsu Knife commercial “But Wait!!! There’s More!!!”
There are so many other ways to prepare the leftovers! Before I had kids (and therefor had more time) I used to use leftover turkey to make egg rolls for the day after. That’s a really nontraditional use. Once the kids came along it was a little too time intensive-plus hot oil & kiddos aren’t the best mix.
So what are your favorite ways to use Thanksgiving leftovers? Please share!
Participating in the series is easy! It’s just three simple steps
1-Post your family tradition. It’s fine to dig through your archives and find a good one you posted last year, although personally I would just repost it as a “Best of” . Make sure you let folks know that you are entering it in the Frugal Thanksgiving Mini Series.
2-Enter the link in the Mr. Linky below. Please put a clue in parenthesis next to your name like this :
3-Grab the badge code from my right sidebar and share the love! The more folks who participate, the better resource this series becomes for all of us.
And you know what? If you don’t have a blog, that’s ok too! Just send it to me via my comments form, and I’ll give you your very own post here at Frugal Upstate and even do the linking too.
Today is the final participatory day of the Frugal Thanksgiving Mini Series. Tomorrow I will do a roundup with links to all the series posts as well as my personal favorite link from each.
Again-the Mr. Linkys will stay open all week, so if you think of a fabulous side dish on Thursday, don’t worry! Go right on back and link it. The point of the series is to make a resource that readers can come back to at any point to find the recipes they need to have a fabulous, frugal Thanksgiving.
