I love the holidays so much that I am one of the many people that tend to go through a little bit of after holiday blues. 

The decorations, the parties, the fun and festivities? 

Oh why can't they just go on all year long? 

But I guess we wouldn't appreciate them as much if they did right? 

So one of my consolations is that I get to eat leftovers. 

I don't know if anyone else gets quite as excited as I do about them. I look forward to sandwiches, soups, chowders, and salads. All of it makes my little heart go pitty-pat.

Some people people may think I am crazy, but I know there are those of you out there that are just like me. Right?

All my leftover lovers say haaaaay.

I mean I love them so much I make twice as much, ham, turkey, or beef than I really need just so I will have plenty of leftovers after I send the kids home with doggy bags.

Speaking of doggy bags, does anyone else out there remember when they actually sent you home from restaurants with "doggy bags"?

I can remember brown paper bags that had dogs on the bag.

I think one of them said "Doggy Bag" on it, and one said something like "Bones for Bowser".

Ha, what a cool little flash down memory lane did I just have?

Oops, ADD moment there!

Anywho, where were we? 

Oh yes, leftover mania. 

Whether it is leftover ham made over into Jalapeno Ham Salad SandwichesSplit Pea Soup with Ham, or a nice breakfast of Cheddar Cheese Biscuits with Peppered Ham Gravy

or maybe leftover turkey turned into some Turkey Noodle Soup, Turkey, Bacon, Corn Chowder

or to take a little Mediterranean detour with a Greek Turkey Pasta Salad.

Leftovers just make me do the happy dance. 

It is true. If you don't believe me just ask my family! 

They are used to my crazy food-induced behavior. Most of the time they just shake their heads and walk away. 

But, my darling foodies, these little beauties have far surpassed any of my previous leftover loves. 

They have made me toss aside those mile high turkey sandwiches topped with stuffing and cranberries. These are now my new favorite vehicle for leftover turkey nomification! 

What about you? 

Tell me you have a least one leftover dish that you look forward to all year long? 

Do you turn your leftover side dishes into something tasty too?
