Ok, dinner’s been served. Finally, you’re done cooking. Not!

In my house, the party always lingers beyond the main meal and often stretches into the next day. So when I shop and plan for the holiday, I’m prepared with goodies for midnight snacks, breakfast and lunch. Many of those ideas involve bits and pieces of the holiday meal. Is there anything better than a roast turkey sandwich? Yes! A Mexican-style torta that features chipotle cranberry relish, a little avocado and crusty rolls.

tipsNtouchesPerk up the morning for overnight guests with an ice-cold Negra Modelo Michelada. Then treat them with a simple, yet luxurious brunch of Chilaquiles—that ingenious casserole made from a zesty sauce and hearty tortilla chips—or comforting, yet surprising, Salsa-Baked Mac and Cheese.

Or, serve a spicy bowl of Chili Verde made with leftover turkey, tomatillo salsa and garbanzo beans. Drizzle on a little sour cream. Toss in a green salad. They’ll go home happy.
