Here are four suggestions for starting new post-Thanksgiving traditions.

Three new ideas for leftover cranberry sauce (either the whole-berry or jellied type):

1. Warmed and served as an ice cream topping.

2. Mixed with cream cheese to make an eye-opening spread for bagels, muffins or toast.

3. Melted in a saucepan over low heat with a bit of butter and used as a chicken glaze.

One fantastic idea for everything else:

4. Cut leftover turkey into chunks and mix it with leftover gravy and veggies. Pour it into a pie plate, top it off with leftover mashed potatoes or stuffing, and heat it up for a new style of Shepherd's Pie.
