It happens to the best of us. The anticipation of the Thanksgiving meal is so great that, by the time we sit down to eat it, our multiple (and completely necessary) taste tests of everything in the kitchen have completely eliminated any room for the star of the event: the turkey.
So the day after Thanksgiving (or as we call it, Thanksgaving -- see what we did there?) is our day to feast on the turkey that has been tirelessly prepared by someone other than ourselves the day before. And what better way to do that than with a sandwich?
Fellow Thanksgaving lovers, we give you: The Ultimate Leftover Turkey Sandwiches (Part III)
