It’s time… nearly! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year and somehow it totally crept up on my this year. As a kid it used to be about waking up early and watching the Macy’s parade. It doesn’t have quite the same appeal to me anymore. But I do plan to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving though!

Now, it’s all about the food. Family favorites. I could honestly skip the turkey entirely, and almost did this year, but then I wouldn’t have it around to make delicious leftovers like this! The sides and dessert are where it’s at, the day of anyway! Then it’s all about the tasty leftovers. I’ve long ditched the classic sandwiches or stealing a random piece of turkey from the fridge.

It’s funny how one meal has so much expectation wrapped around it. The requirement of specific dishes – because it’s a classic, well loved recipe, made year after year. Or maybe it was a newer dish that the entire family loved and wanted again. If something is missing, it’s noticed. Then there are the lesser dishes we continue to serve because it’s just tradition. I’m sure every family has one or two of those. Tradition is a hard thing to break.

Leftovers though? Let’s ditch the traditional boring turkey sandwiches. Trust me. It’s time. Enjoy a full flavored post-holiday meal.
