By now I’m guessing we’ve all started our shopping lists for the big Thanksgiving meal … I’m whipping up some classic mac ‘n cheese as a side dish, as well as a dessert to take to our family gathering this year. I know, I know I have an easy holiday ahead of me!
Even better, if past years prove true, I’ll be leaving with much more than that in the form of leftovers. We always dole out a bounty of extras for each family and I sometimes struggle with how to best utilize all the leftovers …
But not this year! These recipes were inspired by Thanksgiving leftovers and now I’m anticipating the day after Thanksgiving even more than the actual feast!
