  1. Okay, so this recipe just gave me another idea on what to do with my thanksgiving turkey leftovers. I will save this recipe right now and have my day after thanksgiving taken care of. Ooops! Thanksgiving is fast approaching, make sure you buy healthy turkey. Those that are antibiotic-free, hormone-free and humanely-raised. Don’t serve your family with a dose of a medicine that they don’t need.
