By way of background, my extended family (brothers, sisters, spouses, children all under 6) gets together for the Thanksgiving weekend at my mother's house every year. We do the full turkey/dressing/trimmings meal on Thursday around 2pm and then for the rest of the weekend it's basically....leftovers. And not leftovers turned into turkey soup or curry or anything....just literally pull out the same serving dishes from the fridge and everyone helps themselves.
By about noon on Saturday I have had my fill (pretty sure everyone else has too), but nothing has really changed over the years. This time, I'm determined to introduce something different (if only for my own sanity!). So I am trying to come up with a relatively simple, appealing meal to serve for dinner Friday night. On Saturday we traditionally go to a friend's open house (so it's another round of "holiday" foods).
So I'm trying to come up with something different, but (1) relatively easy to prepare, since we've just put in a huge effort and (2) fairly simple, since we've just had a couple days of heavy eating.
