November 23, 2018 by Waverly Wilde
Well, Thanksgiving is over. The food has been ate, the dishes are done, the family has all gone, and now all that’s left to do is curl up and take a nap as you … oh wait. There’s one problem.
What. To. Do. With. The. Leftovers.
Sure, you could wait a few hours for your stomach to settle and chow down on them right now. Or, you could crack open that freezer and make Thanksgiving last for days to come! Let’s go with that one! Here’s how to freeze your Thanksgiving favorites, and have food feasts that last for days or even weeks!
Time for Turkey
It’s great to have turkey leftovers around to reuse – turkey is perfect for sandwiches, a snack, or even to roll up with some cheese and just chomp down on.
When prepping turkey for your freezer, make sure to separate the bones and the meat – you’ll want to freeze each on their own. And, if you are finding that your freezer just doesn’t have enough room for your turkey, well, then it’s past time for you to get a new one! Stop in today, and take a tour of all of the large freezer and refrigerator combos we have. You are sure to find one that’s just as big as your appetite!
Yes, yes. Gravy can be frozen and you can stretch it out to last as long as possible, even if it does mean that you’ll have to keep pulling out your stretchy pants. If you want to freeze gravy, pour it into an ice cube tray. Now, you’ll have little cubes of gravy you can use whenever you want, on anything you want. You’re welcome.
Stuffing is a Thanksgiving staple. If you want to keep Thanksgiving going for as long as possible, there’s no better way to do it than by keeping stuffing around.
To freeze it, throw stuffing in your favorite sealable, air tight container, and toss that stuffing in the freezer where it will stay good for many, many meals to come. What about after that? Well, that’s easy. Reheat it in your oven!
