Wendy asks: What do you make with your Thanksgiving leftovers?


My husband and I cook Thanksgiving diennr every year for a homeless veteran’s shelter in our town (it’s a home vs. a large shelter, so there are usually 8-12 veterans there for the diennr).We will make:TurkeyGravyStuffingMashed potatoesGreen bean casseroleMac and CheeseCranberry sauceRoasted veggies (squash, yams, asparagus)Dinner rollsPies (and maybe cookies)Basket of hot cocoa/tea/coffee/other goodiesWe make all that Wednesday/Thursday morning, then head up to my parents house, where my mom makes our Thanksgiving diennr every year. Only thing I will bring to that is green bean casserole, because my mom hates it and refuses to make it haha
