How Christmas Leftover Can Make Fun Meals

Christmas is officially over but the holiday spirit is still in the air. We are sure that if you open your fridge right now, it will be full of leftovers from a feast-y Christmas Day.

In the spirit of being jolly, we should all care a little bit about sustainability and not throw away those delicious leftovers.

Why do that, our editor screams, when you can turn those leftovers into yummy meals for the coming days. Here are some ideas our editor-cum-aspiring-chef gives us:

1.  A Turkey Thai Green Curry

Add a yummy meat element to the traditional Thai Green curry by adding finely diced/shredded turkey or chicken leftovers to a Thai Green curry. Cook red peppers, spring onions, peas in butter till they are soft inside. Then add curry paste and meat to the mix. Next add coconut milk and bring to boil, then cook on low for 5 minutes. Serve with rice.

2. Turkey Stir-fry

Nothing says quick and yummy the same way that stir-fry does. Shallow fry onions, garlic, vegetables in olive oil. Add finely sliced turkey slices. Squeeze lemon juice and soy sauce. Stir fry until everything is cooked to perfection.
This stir fry would go great with egg noodles.

3. Turkey Bruschetta

Toast some bread in the over. Rub a clove of raw garlic on the toast and a few drops of olive oil. After that you can put anything on top of it. Favourites include, roast turkey, tomatoes, mushrooms and fresh mint.

4. Leftovers Affogato

Affogato is a pudding that you can knock together in less than a minute. Assemble affogato in a wine glass to make it look extra special. Spoon any leftover pudding at the bottom of each glass. Top with a scoop of ice cream followed by a shot of expresso. Then crunch up amaretti biscuits and scatter on top of each glass of affogato. It'll be Christmas everyday for the rest of the week.

We hoped that you liked these leftover recipe ideas.

How to Organize Christmas Decorations

With only a few days to go until Christmas, we're sure you have all your decorations out and ready to put on the tree and around your beautiful house.

But spare a little thought about what will happen to the decorations once Christmas is over and you will have to take them down.

Will you put them back in boxes to store them until next year as you did the year before? If you are smart about storing your Christmas decorations this year, next year you might be free of tangled wires, heaps of wrapping paper everywhere and lost ornaments. You can do it only if you store right. Here are a few tips to get you started.

1. Store tree ornaments in plastic cups and prevent them from ever getting lost again.

2. For smaller ornaments, put them in an egg carton. You can put several egg cartons inside a storage box.

3. Christmas lights will not get tangled anymore when you wrap them neatly around small cardboard sheets or wrapping paper rolls.

4. Keep wrapping paper from getting everywhere by storing them neatly in a garment bag and hanging them up in a closet until you need them next year.

If you live in a small apartment like a lot of us do, consider storing your Christmas decoration at The Box storage facilities. We pride ourselves on being accessible, flexible, reliable and affordable. Reserve your storage space now.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
