Leftover turkey

Like I said earlier today, Roadkill Rescue is not a recipe sharing site!  But….since my American readers have refrigerators full of Thanksgiving leftovers, I think we’ll make an exception today.  I’m sharing delicious ideas for using up all that extra food so it won’t go to waste.  (Check out the brownies made from cranberry sauce here if you haven’t already seen them.)   Next up is this idea for using up leftover turkey from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures.

Use Up Those Leftovers! Cranberry Sauce Brownies

Cranberry Sauce

I’ve been careful not to share recipes here at Roadkill Rescue, since–ahem–the name of this blog does start with the word “roadkill”.  The kind of roadkill we’re dealing with here are the objects no one wants that get transformed into something desirable and useful.  BUT, there’s a first time for everything, and since my American readers probably have a lot of leftover food in their refrigerators this morning, I thought it would be fun to share some ideas today for using up those Thanksgiving leftovers today.  First up: cranberry sauce.

“On garbage day last week, I drove past a house with a mound of stuff set out at the road,” tells Amy Jo at The Little Moments.  “I took a few minutes to check out the ‘trash’.  There were three TV’s, a particle board entertainment center, two wooden closet doors and a king size headboard.”
