Thanksgiving Day Ideas and Ideas for Leftovers
Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that I truly love. I love the idea of having everyone around a large table, laughing and eating, and ultimately celebrating everyone’s company. It is one of those holidays where people just take it easy and relax. It is also a day where those cooking the meal might get a little bit anxious. Questions begin to take over in their heads and you can see who is stressing in the kitchen. If you have never hosted or prepared a Thanksgiving day meal for a large group of people, it can be a little bit hectic. Not only is there a lot to juggle, but you also have to deal with oven space, counter space, and most importantly time. However, when the meal is served, and everyone is happy, you know you have done a great job.
Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where I love to cook. I love whatever stresses attempt to come my way, and more importantly I love coming up with new recipe ideas that will get some family members questioning. Questions like is this homemade green bean casserole? Is that sweet potatoes in the mashed potatoes? With those questions aside, I think the most I like about Thanksgiving, is the day after. The day where we wake up and think about those mashed potatoes for breakfast, along with littleÂ nibblesÂ of turkey, that, and everything in between. But this is also the day where I begin to come up with new ideas, such as Thanksgiving Day Eggrolls.
So, here are a few ideas to get you started, either in planning a dish to bring to the Thanskgiving Day table, or the days following the big holiday. Everyone have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
