Now before turkey becomes a dirty word in your house we must discuss leftovers. Now make sure you have some Ziploc bags on the kitchen counter. As soon as the table is cleared from dinner start to bag up that BIRD. Try to give every guest that came to dinner a bag of this bird that they raved about. Make sure that you attached all the recipes from this blog post. So when they say they don’t know what to do with it you respond recipes attached thanks to this blog. Instead of wondering what you are going to do with all that turkey (the dirty word) wonder what you will buy on Black Friday.
