The mashed potatoes went first, and it was all downhill from there. The pumpkin cheesecake is gone. The cranberry sauce is kaput. The stuffing went bye-bye. The turkey has been reduced to two piddlin', mostly-empty bags of white and dark.
A lot of the turkey ended up as something new - turkey and dumplings, turkey potpie, turkey in gravy. In that respect, we still have a bunch of that left. Leftovers of leftovers.
It's all very sad.
Today, for the first time in a week, we will have beef. Hamburgers. Maybe spaghetti.
And with that, it's time to get back to some semblance of normalcy. Until the next holiday - in three weeks.
Do you have any Thanksgiving leftovers left? Are you sick of turkey yet? What's for dinner tonight?
