I dont think the stuffing is necessary in a sandwich. You already have cheese and bread. It seems like you should lighten up on the carbs and calories the day after Thanksgiving and hit the treadmill.

Sounds AMAZING!! Will have to dig out my Panini Press!!

I agree. Healthier diets are the way to go for sure – everyone is happier for it and Disney won’t have to refurb as many rides to accomodate the new “larger sized” person.

As far as Thanksgiving leftover tips, I smash my leftover mashed potatoes into potatoe pancakes and broil them. This, with some leftover green beans that were cooked with onions sauteed in olive oil, makes a nice lunch.

Thanksgiving Pizza!

I layout pizza dough, coat it with gravy, then sprinkle on turkey and stuffing. I finish up with a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese and bake for about 10 minutes at 425. It is delicious!
