Are you tired of all the turkey sandwiches you eat with Thanksgiving leftovers?

Lyndi Fultz, also known as NWA Foodie, is treating your taste buds by giving new life to leftovers.

By combining leftover turkey, rolls, cranberry sauce, and goat cheese, you can make a delightfully, delicious hors d'oeuvre. It might actually be something you want to add to your menu for the holiday.

If you roast vegetables as a side for Thanksgiving, add beets. Fultz combines plain yogurt, beets, balsamic vinegar, oil, and pepper to make a treat that's tasty as an appetizer, snack, or dessert. Even if you're not a beet lover, you might be surprised how this combination tastes!

She also said you can always pile your leftover toppings on lettuce to make a salad or wrap.

While you're packing up Thanksgiving leftovers for the family, Fultz said she likes to use little Chinese take-out boxes. They help separate the food, you can label them, and they're easy to stack in the fridge.

These are just a few ideas to help you rethink leftovers. You can find more recipes at NWA Foodie.
