10 Ways Pinterest Makes Leftovers the Best Part of Thanksgiving

Thanks to HP  for sponsoring this post. Click here to see more of the discussion.

Most of us are pretty set for Thanksgiving at this point, aprons firmly tied and hands thoroughly floured as we set to the business of filling our homes with the comforting smells of holiday cooking.

And each year, we make way too much food, especially those of us that can still fit everyone who comes over around one dining room table. Without adding any extra chairs.

But maybe we secretly do it on purpose…. for one reason: leftovers.

There’s something that feels decadent and relieving about having dinner perpetually taken care of until Christmas. But, as much as we love giving thanks for our bounty over and over again, there’s only so many times microwaving and serving the same old staples can happen before the children start demanding deep-dish pizza and Chinese food, and you’re only too happy to throw in the dish towel and call for delivery.

So why not make things a little more “Pinteresting” for your little foodies – and yourself – before that even happens?

Search “thanksgiving leftovers” on Pinterest, and an entire cornucopia of awesome pops up, just waiting for you to prep and serve. I know, because I’ve been re-pinning yummy-looking things. Repeatedly. But, if you’re anything like me, those recipes never make it from tablet to table because of printing.

Our old printer is in the basement and is pain to get up and running since it requires devices to be plugged into it individually. And, no, I can never find the cords.

Then there’s mobile printing, perfect for people who want to do a little pinning over their pumpkin pie. Simply print pins from your smartphone or tablet right to a wireless HP printer and boom, you’re as golden as that turkey you pulled out of the oven on the big day.

Getting excited? And maybe even a little hungry? Consider this an appetizer of awesomesauce – 10 pins/recipes just waiting to be printed that will definitely take your Thanksgiving leftovers to the next level of OMGNOWAI:
