How would you like to save time, money, and your hair, day after Thanksgiving?
You know how busy the week of Thanksgiving can be. All the excitement of November can really weigh you down.
The pressure of planning a family gathering.
Shopping for the perfect turkey and making sure you have all of the right ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
The to do list can add up.
When everything finally comes together and your family is at the table smiling and having a good time. You can look back at the work and be proud of what you’ve done.
Everyone is full and getting ready to leave, if you invited company. Typically, yourself, your daughter, and all the aunties help clean up while the boys watch TV. At least that’s how it is in my house.
Taking a quick look at the table you notice that there are a lot of leftovers. Enough for the next couple of days.
The scariest sight is the amount of Turkey leftover.
Your mind starts to race and you even try to look over the tired old turkey recipes you’ve used in the past. Nothing feels right to you.
You want to try something different and something that your family will actually eat.
