We cooked a turkey, made stuffing, roasted potatoes, had a guest over for dinner, and still have lots of leftovers. I love that, don't get me wrong. It's just that we ate dinner with my husband's family one night this week, enjoyed our Charcuterie one night, and tonight ate leftovers from our second son's birthday party today at Chuck E Cheese. So what to do? I won't willingly throw out food, but I won't eat leftovers more than a few days old either. My husband's a bit more leery than I am about just how long food is good in the fridge, so rather than argue about it I just don't leave it in the fridge.
I found this terrific article on freezing common foods we make during special holidays. I am so glad to read I can freeze stuffing. I have big plans for it- some sort of savoury bread pudding, and a layered casserole, I think. It looks like roasted potatoes don't thaw and reheat well, though, so it looks like that will need to be used up at lunchtime tomorrow.
What plans do you have for your leftovers?
