Thanksgiving turkey leftovers again? Plan on it
Dad could carve slices from a turkey so thin you could almost see through them. The idea, of course, was to feed a crowd, and to have leftovers for those all-important turkey sandwiches (hot and cold) and turkey soup. Such surgical skills are clearly not genetic, but we still carve the bird with an eye toward leftovers. Indeed, each Turkey Day it's tempting to roast two birds — one to share at the table and as doggie bags, and one to hide from guests so I can gorge on leftovers for days, and nights, to come. Last year, we actually did. And the anticipation of yummy stuff to come was yet another reason to offer extra hearty thanks at the holiday table.
