What’s better than Thanksgiving dinner? Leftovers! I’ve turned stuffing into meatballs, mashed potatoes into potato cakes, and cranberry sauce into dessert. But sometimes all you need is a good sandwich. A turkey sandwich is probably the easiest post-Thanksgiving meal to quickly whip up. And after putting in all of the effort to cook the bird the day before, you want to extend its eating life as far as possible. Piling it high on a sandwich is just the way to do it!
PIE. You can’t have Thanksgiving without it. There’s nothing like crowding around the table and fighting over who gets the biggest piece as the heavenly scent bursts out of each slice. I do love pumpkin pie, with its smooth texture and traditional taste, or even pecan pie, a richly sweet indulgent treat. But in my mind, apple pie beats them all.
Every year when Thanksgiving rolls around, my family and I start getting more and more festive with our everyday dinners. Why not enjoy the flavors of Thanksgiving all throughout the month, instead of just one day? I usually spend November incorporating holiday dishes into our meals so that by the time Thanksgiving is actually here, we have tested different flavors and know exactly what we want on our table.
