This Thanksgiving, it is important to be thankful for what really matters: friends, family, home… and leftovers.

It is an undeniable fact of the universe that Thanksgiving leftovers are almost (if not more) enjoyable than the real meal itself. Reheated stuffing isn’t much, but when placed in a delightfully chaotic bowl of gravy, turkey, and a swirl of tart cranberry, that stuffing becomes a valuable currency.   

When preparing for Thanksgiving, it is important to make more food than necessary so you can have a leftovers feast (plus, running out of food during the meal is a mortal sin). In the end, there should be enough leftovers for at least two days’ worth of breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The true expression of what Thanksgiving leftovers should be is, inarguably, the Thanksgiving leftover sandwich; all the fixings between two slices of good bread. It is what I, personally, look forward to most each year.
