Since moving into our home 3 years ago, we have celebrated Thanksgiving at home. Some years we have company others you can find us making a full Thanksgiving feast for the 6 of us. That leaves us with a ton of leftovers and no clue what to do with them!
I love turkey, ham, and all the good stuff as much as the next person, BUT I CANNOT EAT IT FOR A WEEK STRAIGHT! This is why I gathered up a ton of recipes for those Thanksgiving leftovers!
