Thanksgiving leftovers

The best thing to do after the big meal day is have leftovers after Thanksgiving.  Prep ahead to the leftovers will be amazing if you try my Krusteaz Pumpkin Quick Bread Stuffing  make sure you save some of the dried bread (croutons) for the leftover salad.

Start with the greens I prefer spinach add some dried cranberries and apples. Make a light dressing using cranberry juice instead of vinegar.  You will regret Thanksgiving left overs.
