More Thanksgiving Leftover Meals

I think these are the last of the turkey leftover recipes that I will be posting. I hope that they are helpful to all of you.

Leftovers are as easy for teenagers to prepare as they are for adults, and even younger children can prepare at least one on these recipes pretty much on their own. They are also quick and easy for families to work together on preparing.

Leftovers are also pretty cheap to prepare.

I hope that you all enjoy your holiday meal(s), as well as the leftovers. I know that we will.

We were lucky enough to pick up 2 turkeys at the supermarket at about .59 a pound. They are pretty good size turkeys, and we paid just under $10.00 each. We will have one for Thanksgiving, and one for Christmas.

Along with cooking a Thanksgiving meal, teenagers can also create many things for the holiday. Are you a family who gives Thanksgiving cards and or small gifts to friends and family at this time of the year? Here are some ideas to get your teenager involved in the Thanksgiving preparations.

  • About.com has a great card pattern.

Other activities for teenagers include:

  • They can create decorative place settings.
  • They can create a Thanksgiving Day scrapbook, or story book.
  • They could help younger family members to put on a play or concert for the Thanksgiving guests, making invitations and mailing them.

Planned Thanksgiving Leftovers: A Great Idea for the Single Mom

Planned leftovers can be very helpful to the single mother. The first way in which planning these leftovers is helpful is that they can save you money. You can take your time buying all of the components of your meal, so that you hit all of the sales. Store brands are often great deals as well. If you buy extra, and cook it all up, you can easily and quickly prepare meals for the rest of the week. You can even make your own TV dinners this way.

Planned leftovers are easy for families to prepare together, so even younger children can help.  In turn, this gives you more time to spend with your children. You can all do something that you enjoy, instead of wasting time in the kitchen.

Another benefit of planned leftovers is that they are easy for your teenagers to prepare. They can have dinner prepared for when you get home from work, saving you time and, sometimes, the expense of take-out. Teenagers can be a huge benefit to their families.

Planned leftovers should be put together as much as possible when cleaning up after your Thanksgiving meal. You already have to clean up anyway. Anything that will keep in the refrigerator for a few days can be wrapped as complete meals and stored there. Everything else can be frozen as meals and taken out the day before needed, preferable in the morning for good thawing time.

Happy November!!!
