It's a time for family and to give thanks, but let's face it - Thanksgiving is all about the delicious food! Sure spending time with family is nice, but we all look forward to the actual meal and the variety of foods we get to indulge in. But the big question is, what do we do what all of that food that's left over?

Personally, I can eat the same meal a day or two later, but after that I'm pretty much done with the Thanksgiving meal ordeal. I know so many people who feel the same way! There's no need to throw it all away and wish you hadn't a week later. After all, that's just money down the drain and your precious time preparing food out of the window - and completely opposite of being ecomomical (see what I did there, ha).

So here's a breakdown of 35 Thanksgiving leftover recipes that you can whip up in 30 minutes or less, with ingredients you already have in your refrigerator (or counter, or oven, or wherever you have room to store your leftovers). Your entire family will love you and won't even notice it's the same foods prepared a different way. It's a surefire way to keep the creative vibes flowing throughout the holidays and more time around the table with family and friends!
