Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes

I'm taking the week off from posting a meal plan but I wanted to pop in to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and share a few thanksgiving leftover recipes that I can't wait to try. Turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce is one of my favorite taste combinations. Here are a few ways to get some more of that deliciousness into your week. 

Enjoy the holiday!!

Meal 3: Thai Red Curry with Kabocha Squash from Eat Live Run

Modifications: None. If you can't find kabocha squash, substitute butternut squash. No idea what a kobacha squash is? I didn't either the first time I made this recipe. It looks like this and tastes like a combination of butternut squash and pumpkin. It's delicious.
