Thanksgiving- the grand Holiday-of-Food-and-Family- is pretty much one of the best days of the year. Family and friends paired with pie, turkey, sweet potato casserole and more pie is kind of an unbeatable combo. Unless, that is, you figure out a way to extend the goodness of Thanksgiving past Thursday evening.
Yes, I am suggesting a Thanksgiving Leftover Station filled with takeout boxes, packaging goodies, and bags for your guests to package and take home the year’s yummiest leftovers.
Add in yummy bread for turkey sandwich making, all of the leftover Thanksgiving goodness, and food labels (printed labels for the large takeout containers and washi-tape labels for the sauce-sized takeout cups) and your Leftover Station is complete.
Since Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year, I am usually a little sad when the day wraps up. This leftover station, though, just might do the trick to cheer me up (especially because I love, and I mean really lo-ove, Thanksgiving leftovers!).
Even better, since your Thanksgiving probably needs a Leftover Station as well, the thanksgiving leftover printable labels are here (I included some ‘classics’ like turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and cranberries, and also a page of blank labels so you can add your own menu items).
ps- Just to keep things real- I thought of this leftover station laying in bed one night last week (that’s when my best thinking happens). I couldn’t wait for actual Thanksgiving in a few weeks and still get y’all the printables in time for your own leftover stations, so we had a pre-Thanksgiving (dubbed ‘blogsgiving’ by Jordan) this weekend. Oh the life of a blogger. I’m interested to hear Burke and Pi tell their friends about this stuff as they get older- haha!
