Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Day Club

When I grew up Thanksgiving dinner consisted of 20 plus pound turkey and a large buffet of traditional side dishes. For the average family the leftovers from the bird would feed them for about a week. At the Padley household, a couple of days. Having two older brothers, I had to fend for my food.

This year it was a pretty quiet feast with just a few family members, so I had some free time to be creative with my holiday leftovers. And thus, the “Turkey Day Club” was born.
