Ours were largely handed off to the kids. That's one of the advantages of being an empty-nester. :)

What's left now is some turkey tortilla soup, and a small container of turkey. Hopefully gone by week-end.

I'm craving a grilled cheese sandwich today. Perhaps I'll make it fancy and put turkey in it.

Quite well, thank you. Going to be making this either tomorrow or Wednesday.

Wonderful! Finished off the beans yesterday. Still feeling their aftermath.

Still edible. Just polished off a turkey sandwhich for lunch. You'll have to ask the dog how the pumpkin pie was, she ate all of it so I assume delicious.

Thanksgiving was at someone else's house so no leftovers, but my gaming group got together and did the whole Thanksgiving menu again at my house on Friday, new turkey, dressing, biscuits, gravy, cranberry sauce, bean salad. We ate everything, there was just some leftover gravy. My friend and I had Thanksgiving 3 on Saturday, we went and got a Costco roasted chicken and I made stuffing and cranberry sauce and biscuits and refreshed the gravy. There's just enough left of T3 for dinner tonight.

Mostly just turkey left. All the good stuff (mashed potatoes, stuffing, desserts) got polished off by Saturday. I might make turkey tetrazzini tonight and see if I can sell the family on one more night of turkey.

@pitamuffin: Make turkey tacos. They'll never know it's turkey.

I do Thanksgiving at the home of some friends and they always send me home with all the leftovers I can pack on a plate. I finished up everything but the mashed potatoes (always too many mashed potatoes) last night.
Sadly I never manage to get any pie to take home. Sigh

Strip the turkey bare, and simmer those bones with herbs, carrots, onion, and celery for 8 hours or so and then strain it through cheesecloth. With that turkey stock you can make some wonderful turkey soups. In fact, we're probably going to BUY a turkey to do just that, despite having no leftovers to call our own.

I smoked a 20 pounder for my family of 4.
Half of it went to the freezer (dark meat, because white meat dries out)
Still working on it.
Wife baked two pies, sweet potato casserole, corn pudding, and mac/cheese.
Still a bit left of that also.

It's cold and windy outside...getting ready to repurpose the leftover ham into a Ham, Potato and Corn Chowder!

@j5: Euphemistic Tags is totally the name of my next acapella band.

No leftovers here. I'm ready for next month's feast! Well, almost.

I miss leftovers. Other half of the household is a vegetarian so I rarely cook a turkey. Made a turkey and green pepper risotto one year that turned out surprisingly well. But what I really miss is how my grandmother used to fry up leftover mashed potatoes the next day for breakfast.
