I do not care how much you claim to lovvvvvvve Thanksgiving dinner — at a certain point, eating the same damn leftovers everyday gets OLD. For a period of time growing up, I actually hated Thanksgiving dinner because I knew we would be eating it the day after Thanksgiving, the day after the day after Thanksgiving, the day after the day after the day after Thanksgiving, and so on. My parents weren’t huge foodies so it didn’t occur to them to take the leftovers and turn them into something different. But YOU CAN. Here are 10 ways to reuse that leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, cranberry sauce and stuffing so that no one at your table whines, “Aww man, Thanksgiving dinner again?!”
This Thanksgiving, make it your mission to blow your hard-to-impress in-laws or crotchety relatives away with something other than the expected bottle of wine or pumpkin pie. May we recommend that you come armed to Thanksgiving dinner with a simple side dish that is super easy to make, but seems like you slaved away all day over. We can’t guarantee that these people will admire you year-round, but at least they’ll be impressed for one night. That’s something. Click through for some ideas for sides that shows off your cooking skills (as paltry as they may be) and ingenuity.
Thanksgiving is so much better when day drinking is involved. A few cocktails in, and suddenly you and your estranged brother are back in bonding mode, you’re brushing off your aunt’s annoying questions, and all your mom’s passive aggressive comments sound like Charlie Brown’s teacher gibberish. Awesome. Whether you choose a light champagne cocktail for your Thanksgiving pregame, or just throw all calorie-counting caution to the wind and opt for homemade eggnog or maple white Russians, we’ve got you covered.

For the first time since 1888, the first day of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving.

Click through for some yummy Thanksgivukkah recipes for this once-in-a-lifetime holiday.
“Thanksgiving appetizer” might seem like an oxymoron, because, well, the entire day is dedicated to stuffing yourself. Do you really need a snack before the main event? I say yes, for a few reasons. Firstly, if you munch a bit throughout the day, you’ll be less likely to completely gorge yourself at dinner (at least in theory). Secondly, being interrogated about your relationship status by your great aunt is infinitely more bearable while eating a delicious dip. Plus, as a Thanksgiving guest, bringing a fun appetizer is a surefire way to feel like you contributed something, even if the host refuses any help with the actual dinner. Sound good?
