My mother always used to say that she enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner better the next day, once it was just the four of us and the stress of the meal prep was behind us.
I tend to agree. And when we get tired of reheating plates of turkey and gravy, there are plenty of ways to turn the rest of the turkey into something else altogether.

There is nothing as delicious with that holiday turkey than a gravy made from the drippings, but it becomes just one more of those last minute things that has to be done in the whole process of all the other last minutes things. All too often folks just skip it and use a canned gravy, which of course, while there's not a thing wrong with that, it just doesn't have that same home-cooked, Thanksgiving flavor.
