What To Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers

There is so much that you can do with Thanksgiving Leftovers; Turkey Soup, Stuffing Waffles, Turkey Sandwiches.  Making something else with leftovers is easy, but figuring out ho to send guests home with leftovers can be frustrating.

How do you send leftovers home?  For us, we dish out our tupperware to guests, and then cross our fingers and toes that we get it all back.  I’ve sent people home with plates of food in the past, but it’s the same problem, waiting to get your dishes back. 

This year, I decided to spend a few bucks, and buy some deli containers on Amazon to send food home in.  I’m not going to worry about getting my dishes back, and this way you can divide up dishes without making them all get mixed together. 

So because I get to have two Thanksgivings, and we had our first one, Friendsgiving, this past weekend.  We had 17 guests, including kids.  So to send leftovers home, I got a package of 44 containers, with lids for $12.  Worth every penny.  I had some labels, and labeled each container for an added touch. 

You can use these deli containers for a lot more too!  We use them to store rice, quinoa etc., and in the small ones, we use those for things like nuts and seeds.  It’s a cheap way to keep everything fresh, and organized since all of the containers fit together.

It’s not much, but it makes a huge difference.  Especially for your sanity!
