Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio Chances are you woke up this morning with a lot of leftover food from that Thanksgiving feast, but there are things you can do to store and serve it well.

Peak into the fridge and those leftovers might look scary. "You look at that carcass, and it just looks like something out of Jarassic Park," Valerie Phllips, the Deseret Morning News food editor, said.

Phillips says get the turkey meat off the carcass and you can store it tightly covered in the fridge for about three days. You can freeze turkey and mashed potatoes, but reheat them well. "You need to heat those so that they're quite hot," Phillips said.

She says turkey has a stronger flavor than chicken, so experiment with curry, different sauces, soups and casseroles.
