If you calculated right (or wrong — however you look at it) you should have tons of leftovers after Thanksgiving to make and freeze great soups, pot pies & such. It can be hard to motivate to cook after such a big holiday, especially if you’ve hosted a big Thanksgiving dinner. Invite a friend to cook with you and cooking with leftovers becomes not only possible, but fun!
Plan to get together with a friend the Monday after Thanksgiving, bring some turkey stock & leftover meat and create a wonderful soup.
