What Will You Do With Thanksgiving Dinner Leftovers?

My favorite thing to do the morning after Thanksgiving is to make homemade turkey stock from the turkey carcass. It is so easy to do and so delicious! The turkey stock can be used for a delicious soup or frozen for future use. I love a good homemade turkey soup and after the heavy Thanksgiving meal, it is just what my family needs. Be sure and refrigerate your turkey carcass until your are ready to make the stock.


How to safely use and store your leftovers

Leftover foods are cooked foods that you or your family do not eat within 2 hours after they are cooked.  Leftovers include foods that you may eat before or after they have been stored in the refrigerator or freezer.  The chance of food poisoning increases the longer you store a food after it is cooked.  Improper handling or storing cooked food is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in the home.  The careful cook can reduce this threat by following the guidelines below for storing, reheating, and disposing of leftover foods.
