On Tuesday, we told you how our Cross Country server could help make it easier to serve a big Thanksgiving dinner in a small space. But after the guests leave, you’ve still got a three-day weekend to enjoy. (We’re assuming your employer gave you Friday off too; if not, our apologies.)
Here are three easy ways to come down from the holiday high after your small-space Thanksgiving dinner.
1. Dress Up Your Leftovers
If you cooked a big enough bird, you’re going to be eating turkey for a long time. But turkey doesn’t have to be boring. With the right toppings or dressings and a little creativity, you can go any number of different directions with the same turkey. Here, courtesy of Real Simple magazine, are 10 delicious and easy turkey sandwich recipes to get you started.
2. Veg Out
You worked hard on that Thanksgiving meal; you’ve earned some time off. Relax in front of the TV for a while. There’s plenty of football and college basketball to watch — or, if sports isn’t your thing, catch up on the shows on your DVR that you missed because you were too busy basting. (The console pictures is from our Essentials Lifestyle collection, and it’s shallow enough to fit in smaller living rooms.)
3. DON’T Go Shopping
When the big-box store down the street is selling Blu-ray players for 28 bucks, it’s hard to resist the temptation to bring your sleeping bag down there and get in line for the Black Friday madness. You might score a few bargains, but is it worth getting a black eye and losing a tooth or two?
These are our suggestions. What are your plans for unwinding after the holiday is over?
