November 16th, 2015

Without fail in November, every website, talk show, magazine, radio station and family member feels obligated to communicate their “finest methods for using Thanksgiving leftovers.”  They deliver endless recipes and more recipes until we want to shriek in an ear-splitting tone, “Stop with the food talk!” Every single person who celebrates this festive gobble-gobble holiday finds themselves on turkey overload and fatigue.  After a huge consumption of the holiday meal, even the consideration of turkey tacos or sweet potato smoothies makes us queasy and turns our stomachs.
