Whenever I have people over for dinner or a party, my biggest fear is that there won’t be enough to eat. So, much to my husband’s chagrin, I always buy way more food than necessary. Thanksgiving is no exception. Even after sending people home with leftovers, there’s still plenty left for us.

If you’re wondering what to do with your Thanksgiving leftovers (and not just the turkey), check out the creative ideas below from around the web. Happy Holidays!
