Thanksgiving is just around the corner. The fall harvest season is in full swing. I’m thinking about food, and not just any food, but the ultimate dish for the fall season that has to combine essential fall foods – pumpkin and turkey. I am happy to say that I have found a few recipes for us to try:

This takes ground turkey so it would be hard to use with leftover turkey, but I wanted to include it because it is so different. It could possibly be turned into a meatloaf too.

Thanksgiving Leftover Safety!
While we’re talking about using the delicious leftovers from our Thursday feasts let’s talk about making sure those leftovers are safe to eat.
1. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours of serving time.
2. Leftovers are good in the fridge for 3-4 days.
3. Or, you can freeze your leftovers and they’ll be good to eat for 2-6 months.
4. When reheating leftovers be sure to heat to 165 degrees to kill germs and bacteria.
