Leftovers - don't last long around here. They do get worked into all menus over the following days and thus used up quickly. That certainly makes meals much lower effort for awhile so have the extra time needed to get everything washed up and back in place asap and then funnelled into the remodelling(fixing) and decluttering projects without taking away from exercising time.
Only Major Effort of any type needed is to immediately use carcass(es) for BROTH. Some goes to refrig and some goes to freezer. You can never have too much broth (especially since this is good, low sodium without the mystery ingredients of store bought)

Fresh made stock is always better than store bought, imo. I do make turkey dumplings with leftovers some years. This year I was thinking of making some jerky, and I might still, we'll see. It's just me and DD so if I am cooking, we usually have a lot of leftovers! Most people do, I suppose!
Since it's almost Christmas, I thought I'd ask what you all do with the inevitable leftovers? Does anyone preserve any of their leftovers, and if so, what and how?
For me, I take any leftover veggies (onions, carrots, green beans, etc) & the turkey carcass and boil it all down, strain it, then measure out portions into seal-a-mail bags and seal it up to put in the freezer. It keeps a long time in the freezer and I can take out a portion at a time if I want to make myself small (hopefully SP approved!), portion controlled bowls of hearty soup. It's a nice stock base for lots of recipes calling for chicken stock.
