Leftover turkey and trimmings???? What to do?

Have you ever wondered what to do with your turkey and trimmings leftovers after Thanksgiving or Christmas? I have a great solution! I guess I shouldn't say it is mine, I stole it from my mother-in-law one year when all of us got together and we had leftovers. What else is there to do, but make a casserole?
Now, for those of you very sectional eaters out there, you may be thinking "casserole, NO WAY!" I can understand. My hubby likes his foods separated and eats them one at a time. I hear your scoffs and reservations. However, I have to say-it is JUST wonderful. Here is the way I did it today:
I didn't have a lot of leftover dressing, so I started with the turkey on the bottom-enough to cover the whole bottom of your pan. I used a 9X13 pan, but you can use whatever size you want, depending on how many leftovers there are. After the turkey, I put dressing, then corn, a think layer of gravy, then mashed potatoes,then ended with gravy. I covered it with foil and put it in the freezer for a day when I didn't want to cook! You can do this casserole to whatever taste you like-whatever layers you like-although I always end with potatoes and gravy. Depending on how many leftovers you have-you can always give it to friends or your fav single friend who would probably really enjoy it.
Hope you try it!
