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?!”
Did you really think Sir Besties Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would celebrate the American holiday with anyone but each other? Of course not! Here’s how I imagine the big day went down, if Sir Ian and Sir Patrick channeled their alter egos, Captain Picard and Gandalf, in a confusing fashion:
Sir Patrick: Sir Ian, you’re late!
Sir Ian: A wizard is never late, Sir Patrick. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
Sir Patrick: Well, whatever. Starfleet has issued a direct order to carve this bird!
Sir Ian: Hold out your hand, Sir Patrick. Remember, that wound will never fully heal. The bird will carry it the rest of his life.
Hands Sir Patrick the knife.
Sir Patrick: Well then, let’s make sure history never forgets the name … Thanksgiving.
Sir Ian: So be it. (nods head)
Sir Patrick: ENGAGE.
