Share your best recipes for the day after.
Dinner’s done and the only thing more stuffed than the bird is you. Now the question becomes: What to do with all those leftovers? While many say simple reheating is all that’s necessary to have a “day after” feast, others have elaborate recipes for turning Thanksgiving leftovers into gourmet delights. From savory turkey soups to sinfully delicious pot pies and mile-high sandwiches, everyone has their own ideas on what to do with what’s leftover. The Food Network even has an entire recipe collection dedicated to the topic. We’d prefer to hear from you! What are your favorite Thanksgiving leftover recipes? Share them in the comments section or upload them as an announcement.

Lucy's Matt doesn't think there is such a thing as too many Thanksgiving turkeys.
To me, Thanksgiving is the harbinger of the Christmas season, and I look forward to putting up the tree that weekend. For Matt, however, it marks his favorite day of the year because he loves turkey. He looks forward to the big dinner and all the leftover turkey sandwiches, turkey casseroles, turkey stir fry, you name it. He loves turkey more than Santa loves his elves. So one year, we were out and he wanted to stop in at one of those discount food stores. We don’t have one in our town and Matt likes to shop there whenever he can because second only to turkey, he loves bargains. When we got to the meat aisle, we saw that they had Jennie-O turkeys on sale for 38 cents a pound. I glanced over and saw Matt’s eyes glaze over. He was thrilled; …

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and we'd like to know what you're thankful for! Post a photo of what you're grateful for to enter our contest. You could win a turkey from McCaffrey's (or the equivalent in a voucher), plus a Patch prize pack. McCaffrey's, with stores in Newtown and Yardley (as well as N.J. sites), lost its power last week during Hurricane Sandy and lost its perishable food stock. "It's just food; we can restock that,"said Kathy Bodine of McCaffrey's. "It's nothing compared to what some of our neighbors lost." Bodine said the company is thankful for its costumers and that's the reason it wanted to donate a prize to the photo contest. Not sure what kind of photo to enter? Well, it can be anything near and dear to you - …

The Brunette Lucy thinks anytime is the right time to get into the holiday spirit.
I’m so thankful that it’s finally after Thanksgiving. I look forward to the Christmas season like no other time in the world. Even my Jewish friends get caught up in it with me around. However, there are two types of people between November and December. There are those who think it’s never too early to play Christmas music. And then there’re those who think that until Thanksgiving is over, no seasonal music even hinting at the jolly elf’s existence should be played. Even seasonal hymns are off limits. I belong to the never too early crowd. I also belong to the “never take the tree and any other outside decorations down until your neighbors hint at petitioning the local zoning board” crowd. My children have all agreed that this is yet …

The Brunette Lucy ruffles a few feathers in trying to wrestle her 25-pound bird into the roasting pan.
We host Thanksgiving at our house, and this year was no different. I normally cook a 16- 18-pound turkey, along with a ham. However, some of my family was going to go elsewhere, and I knew that there would be a ton of leftovers if I cooked that much food. Matt and I decided that we’d go with a larger bird and save the ham for Sunday dinner. Since he was going out, I asked him to pick one up. What he came home with was a 25-pound turkey that looked like something Fred Flintstone would eat. I’ve never seen a bird that large. Thankfully, we have an extra refrigerator, but I had to take a few shelves out in order to accommodate the monstrosity. The night before Thanksgiving, I wrestled the turkey up the stairs. After a combination of step, …

Feel like you were at the Hatters' 48-0 Thanksgiving Day victory.
Maybe it was the brand-newartificial turf at Hatters Stadium, or maybe it was just lots of hard work leading up to Thanksgiving Day that helped propel the Hatters to a 48-0 victory over visiting Upper Moreland.
