You must have had enough turkey by now… what is the perfect suggestion for all those Christmas leftovers? Throw them out.
Really. Well, if you can’t bring yourself to do that, you can up-cycle them through the cat or dog first. No cooked bones though people or you will be putting the new room on the vet’s house by New Year’s Eve.
How many quiches, fried rices and creamy turkey pastas can you stand? Turkey korma is just another way of saying turkey coma. And just one word of note at this point: Turkey pizza is wrong. No ifs or buts, it’s just wrong.
Don’t do it.
Okay, so throwing out is wasteful. But eating five kilos of turkey in a week “just to get rid of it” is going to ensure Christmas remains with you for another three or four months as you hit the treadmill to work it off. Except you are so not hitting the treadmill, are you?
Make yourself feel better, thrifty and frugal by investing in a set of Suckerware (aka Tupperware) and freeze the bulk of your bountiful feast. That way you a) feel good now and b) have something to throw out in ten months when you find it at the back of the freezer.
An even better idea is to use the el-cheapo takeaway variety container so you don’t even need to bother wrestling the sad freezer-burned lump of something out of it’s storage coffin. You can bin the lot.
You know it makes sense.
