Thanksgiving is simply across the nook, shut sufficient that I’m already occupied with the menu. My household usually has the ever-present turkey for dinner, albeit normally only a turkey breast together with ham and all of the trimmings which differ barely yr by yr.
On the finish of our feast, even supposing the menu appears to be shrinking annually, we find yourself like most People with leftovers. When our household gatherings had been bigger previous to the passing of grandparents, and so on. leftovers would get farmed out, however lately we find yourself consuming our vacation repast for days previous the precise vacation.
To the very best of my skill, the leftovers get become different intelligent meals or frozen besides, there’s at all times one thing to discard. My dad mentioned his household at all times gave the scraps to the canine and/or chickens. (I assume the chickens didn’t get any turkey although…) However in my family we needed to discover one other resolution.
So the place do the Thanksgiving scraps go in my residence? Most of them go within the freezer and the turkey carcass and ham bone get boiled down into inventory, however what about the remaining?
If I’ve deliberate issues accurately, and it’s taken me years to get right here, we received’t have something to throw away. However something that does must be discarded goes within the compost bin.
I dwell within the metropolis so we subscribe to the municipal compost service which simply occurs to finish till spring on the very finish of November. Which means that unusable scraps go within the compost bin. Sadly, which means that Christmas vacation scraps must be handled in one other method.
I feel one of the best ways to resolve the difficulty of leftovers at Christmastime is to ask extra individuals over. Higher but, I’ll hope somebody invitations me to dinner so that they must take care of the leftovers. Really, this yr, we’re volunteering at our local food bank and sure, even they’ve leftovers.
I don’t dwell below a rock. I understand that this “problem” of what to do with leftovers is a luxurious not everybody has. What an issue, eh? Too a lot to be glad about.
