What to do with all that leftover Thanksgiving Day food? Not only did we have extra food not eaten, but also pounds of food that hadn’t been made into their dishes. We didn’t have the traditional meal with turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, yams, etc. I’ve turned those items into leftover dishes for years.

This year, we decided to serve spanish tapas. We have a refrigerator full of things like 4 pounds of mussels, 2 pounds of portuguese chorizo, 2 packages of prosciutto, 2 pounds of shrimp, dough for empanadas, tomatoes, olives. . . well, you get the idea. So tonight I made Portuguese Steamed Mussels, served with homemade bread. After eating our fill, I made to-go packages of food for my gal pal, sk, to take to the office with her tomorrow. Hopefully, her office mates will enjoy the pirirrana, basque salad, portuguese steamed mussels and bread. Anyone hungry. . .

  1. dang that sounds good! , well you could always eat the left overs for a week or host a social gathering and feed everyone, or put together small food dishes and go around passing them out to the homeless, or feed everyone at your partners work , just some ideas 🙂

  2. Okay, okay, okay. . . all very valid ideas. 🙂 I’m going with the simplest two: eating them for the next week / freezing some and sending leftover packages with sk to work. I mean, I really like potatoes but even I’m getting tired of the potato salad already. Cheers.
