    At the end of every Thanksgiving celebration, there's always that one aunt who insists on sending you home with the leftovers. "What am I gonna do with all these potatoes?!" she asks nobody in particular. "Your uncle and I can't possibly finish all this food!" she adds, usually while fumbling around in a drawer of plastic containers she's been saving for this exact purpose. A moment later, when she finishes scooping an ungodly amount of mashed potatoes into a gigantic plastic tub that once held margarine, she'll hand it over, kiss you on the cheek, and send you on your way.

    We’ve all learned more than we bargained for about how to celebrate the holidays during uncertain times. Last year, many of us cooked smaller Thanksgiving feasts and celebrated by Zoom. This year, with the proper precautions, we might see more real-life gatherings, and plates full of most — if not all — of the trimmings. The good news: More leftovers, perhaps, to go around. The not-so-good news: Prices for turkey and other food are higher than in past years. So we want to make smart use of every bite. Turkeys will generally be bigger this year too because of labor shortages and delays at processing plants, Butterball President and CEO Jay Jandrain told the AP. So put those leftovers to work: TURKEY There are many, many ways to use up that leftover turkey. Think about soups, tetrazzini, pot pies (recipe below) and, of course, sandwiches. Anywhere you would use leftover or cooked chicken is fair game (pun slightly intended) for leftover turkey. Swap it into your favorite pasta dish or salad. Shred it and add to a lasagna instead...

    If turkey is the star at your 2021 Thanksgiving table, you’ll want to take necessary steps preparing the dish with your loved ones' safety in mind. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says you should not wash or rinse a turkey before cooking as poultry juices can contaminate other foods, utensils and countertops if spread in the kitchen. In a 2020 survey, 78% of participants reported washing or rinsing turkey before cooking, according to the CDC. "Old recipes and family cooking traditions may keep this practice going, but it can make you and your family sick," the CDC states on its website. Wash your hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling poultry. Use a separate cutting board and wash any dishes or utensils the turkey touches. THE MOST POPULAR THANKSGIVING SIDE DISH IN EVERY STATE A turkey should also never be thawed by leaving it out on the counter as it can become unsafe to consume at certain temperatures due to bacteria growth with the "danger zone" between 40°F and 140°F. Instead thaw in...

    Most families likely had a smaller Thanksgiving celebration than in previous years, but probably still have plenty of leftovers from the feast. So, what to do with all that food before it goes bad? “The thing is to look in your refrigerator and say, ‘What do I have, and what do I need to use up?'” said nutrition expert and registered dietitian Dr. Susan Mitchell with Breaking Down Nutrition. Mitchell said the first thing to focus on is deciding what to do with the meats, and how they might be repurposed. “Make that big Dagwood sandwich that you like, or right away make it into some type of soup,” Mitchell said. Next, freeze any meat that won’t be eaten in two to three days, because that’s about how long it will last in the fridge. Slices can be frozen for sandwiches in the weeks ahead, and the same goes for chunks of meat that can be used in soups. Mitchell recommended making those soups now so they can be frozen as finished meals. “Then, on those days that you’re dog-tired,...
    As if we didn’t have enough to worry about this holiday season, November and December are also peak months for food poisoning from certain types of bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens. That bacterium grows in cooked foods like turkey and beef kept at room temperature. Consumer Reports says you can keep your favorite holiday foods safe and tasty beyond your holiday dinner by following some tips from its food and health experts. First, pack any leftovers as soon as possible. You should do this sooner than you might think. They should be refrigerated within 2 hours of cooking, regardless of the temperature. Many people leave the turkey out to cool, but that’s a big no-no, says CR. A whole turkey can take a long time to cool down, which gives bacteria a chance to multiply. You can store wings or legs on the bone, but slice off the breast meat when it’s time to pack it away. Break down the leftovers into meal-sized portions and store them in shallow covered containers. Plan to freeze whatever you won’t eat in three...

But there's another, perhaps unexpected, carb that serves as the perfect vessel for all your Thanksgiving leftovers: pasta. Here are 10 pasta recipes to cook with Thanksgiving leftovers.
    SHERMAN OAKS (CBSLA) — There was curbside pickup, but the line still wrapped around the block at Honey Baked Ham in Toluca Lake Tuesday. “Ham,” Said Coronado said going back to his car with two bags. “We got a lot of ham!” Coronado said about 30 people typically gather for his family’s Thanksgiving celebration. But, this year, they were keeping things separated and small in an effort to limit everyone’s exposure to COVID-19. “There’s only, I think, seven of us at one house, then six at the other house, and like four at the other one, you know,” he said. And Coronado isn’t the only one preparing for a pared down meal. “We are seeing a lot of smaller ham sizes,” Mitchell Dolfuss, store manager, said. “Cutting them up to fit, you know, smaller portions.” Monica Bosch, another shopper, said her family was celebrating outdoors in the afternoon instead of doing dinner. And, this year, she said they would skip the whole roast turkey. “We’re going to do carne asada, a small turkey breast and Tofurky for the vegetarians,” she...

    Holiday hosts toil for hours to create lavish meals everyone will enjoy. It’s not uncommon for Thanksgiving tables to be covered with more food than guests can conceivably (and comfortably) consume. Leftovers are the norm, but without a plan for what to do with leftovers, food can spoil or end up in the trash. Here are some delicious and waste-conscious ways to put Thanksgiving or other holiday meal leftovers to use. Wrap it up promptly Even though you may want to sit around and chat with guests when the meal is finished, leaving food out at room temperature for too long can create a breeding ground for microbes that may lead to food spoilage and sickness. With a few helping hands, all foods can be packaged away in no time, ensuring that drumsticks or stuffing can safely be served another day. Collect containers Be sure to have reusable food storage containers, zip-top bags, foil, and plastic wrap at the ready. Before all of the food is put away, encourage guests to make their own doggie bags. Plan with other meals...
