“Cooking Light” had some impressive ways of using up leftovers from Thanksgiving. I was the most impressed with making ice cream out of leftover pumpkin pie!
Many times, there is only one serving left and there is not enough from which to create another dish. If you save them in teeny, tiny containers, they get lost in the refrigerator only to reappear when you need the space for a Christmas dinner.
Before cleaning up from the great feast, why not make a plate or two complete with all of the dishes. You could give the plate to your elderly next door neighbor, drop it off at a friend who is recovering from surgery, a college student, or as a lunch for a new mother.
Wrap the plate in foil and put in a freezer bag. That gives them, or you, the option of just placing it in the freezer to be enjoyed at a later date.
