Sunday Suppers: About Those Leftovers…

My Sunday Suppers Series usually has a main course and a dessert recipe along with conversation topics designed to complement the long standing tradition of breaking bread with family and friends.  This week is slightly different in that for those of us in the US, we just celebrated Thanksgiving leaving many of us with pounds and pounds of leftovers!

My family started asking what’s for dinner THE VERY NEXT DAY after Thanksgiving!  Sigh. Nevermind that I just spent hours, possibly adding up to days, cooking in support of hosting the big event, and that doesn’t even include all the planning, preparation, and shopping required to pull it all together.

I have no doubt I won’t get another obvious turkey dinner out of this crew, and figured I may not be alone, so this week’s post is all about using up those leftovers.
