Mom had a strict regimen for Thanksgiving. Turkey etc on the big day. Next day turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, on white toast. Great second meal. Third day, diced turkey, massed potatoes, gravy. Fourth day, everything except the pies to the bins. But in the 1940’s one didn’t keep certain foods around after a day or so. Refrigeration being what it was, too many possibilities for what was jokingly called Mal de mer.
