Following up from last week’s episode on what to feed a crowd, we’re here to help you handle Thanksgiving leftovers that we know you’ll be rich in this week. You know we’re sharing our favorite recipes for making the most of leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, and more (that our families love); But we’re also putting on our food professional hats to talk how to safely and practically deal with leftovers everyday too so that you can avoid food waste and never eat a stale meal again.
THIS WEEK’S EPISODE IS MADE POSSIBLE BY OUR FAVORITE BAKING INGREDIENT:
We are not Leftovers — and Neither are You!
While we both get excited about holiday leftovers, neither Stacie or Meghan love leftovers. We love intentional leftovers, lunch-overs, but no one really wants to eat the same dinner on repeat for 4 days in a row anyway. So when we talk about making the most of leftovers we mean two things: storing them safely and eating them up before they go bad.
