We've been hosting Thanksgiving at our house for the last several years and I really enjoy doing so. Food and friends and family in one place all together. Just makes me so happy. Even though we're having an absurdly warm fall, it's still cool enough to enjoy drinks and dinner on the patio while watching the kids play touch football in the yard. I can't get enough of it. Makes my heart full.
I always get teased that I make way (way, way, WAY) too much food, but it's for good reason. I am firmly in the camp that believes Thanksgiving dinner is wonderful (magic even!), but the real reason I cook is for the leftovers. (I'm just being honest here). Days upon days (weeks and months if you freeze some!) of deliciously prepared foods, sorry but it just doesn't get much better than that.
But let's get down to brass tacks and talk about leftovers, because YASSSSSS!!! LEFFFTOVERSSSSS!!!!! I'm gonna say right now, if you're not a food mixer, click away from this post. Go right on with your happy self to the next recipe, because this one's not for you. But if you're like me and think putting yummy flavors together is a perfectly legitimate way to eat then HELLO! Welcome! You're gonna dig this one! It's all the flavors of Thanksgiving in one glorious dish. And it's freezable for later! Whoop whoop!!!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole, Directions:
