It's time to say goodbye to your Thanksgiving leftovers

It's OK if you need a moment. You've probably bonded with that turkey leg. And that cranberry sauce isn't going to eat itself.

Food safety aside, it's time we moved on from Thanksgiving. Christmas ham is just around the corner, and you can start eating potato pancakes for Chanukkah tomorrow night. If you truly love your leftovers, let them go...into your kitchen trash.

You could freeze your leftovers, if you haven't already, but how often do you look at a Ziploc bag in your freezer and think, Yeah, that's what I want. And while it's easy to ignore sealed Tupperware in your fridge, eventually it will need to be cleaned out.

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's time to institute Trash Tuesday.
