Thanksgiving leftovers

by Miriam Ragen, Online National News Editor and Food Editor
Thanksgiving is like a marathon. Holiday revelers must endure tons of delicious food and the eccentric relatives that seem to appear ever holiday without fail. Then there is the main event, Thanksgiving dinner. After hours of slaving over a hot oven, or watching oversized cartoon characters float over Manhattan, the participants gather around a sagging dining room table and dive headfirst into the seemingly endless dishes of turkey, stuffing, casseroles and desserts. Soon enough dinner is over, the in-laws are passed out in the living room and only one question remains: What to do with the leftovers? Lucky for you, Silver Chips Online has some great suggestions to save those delicious dishes from their imminent fate of becoming mold-encrusted monstrosities.
