Get cooking tonight We hope that by now you've crawled your way out of a Thanksgiving food 
coma. For those who still find themselves with surplus bird, though, here 
are two suggestions: Turkey tortilla soup 
http://www.tastingtable.com/entry_detail/sf/11451/chefs_recipes/Thanksgiving_leftovers_become_a_fragrant_tortilla_soup.htm 
features ingredients not seen on most holiday tables, including avocado, 
lime and jalape?os, making the warmer a welcome break from the rich dishes 
that define Thanksgiving. Leftover turkey can also be substituted for 
chicken in this pot pie

top it with cheddar biscuits or leftover piecrust 
http://www.tastingtable.com/entry_detail/chefs_recipes/10150/Pie_One_On.htm 
. If the fridge is bare or you're in search of some lighter, brighter 
options, try kasha-stuffed squash

, swordfish topped with a vibrant, spicy red chile 'pesto,'

or a raw kale salad

with goat-cheese dressing. If you've decided to open the holiday 
floodgates, we offer further options, like a mezcal-spiked drinking caramel

that's poised to give hot chocolate a head rush, wedges of buttermilk cake 
with poached pears

and a cloud of cr?me fra?che, and red-wine-marinated skirt steak 
http://www.souschefseries.com/detail/scs/11366/Meet-Chris-Robertson-sous-chef-at-North-End-Grill-in-NYC.htm#recipe 
that could become a weeknight staple in the busy days to come.

We hope that by now you’ve crawled your way out of a Thanksgiving food coma.

For those who still find themselves with surplus bird, though, here are two suggestions: Turkey tortilla soup features ingredients not seen on most holiday tables, including avocado, lime and jalapeños, making the warmer a welcome break from the rich dishes that define Thanksgiving. Leftover turkey can also be substituted for chicken in this pot pie; top it with cheddar biscuits or leftover piecrust.

If the fridge is bare or you’re in search of some lighter, brighter options, try kasha-stuffed squash, swordfish topped with a vibrant, spicy red chile “pesto,” or a raw kale salad with goat-cheese dressing.

If you’ve decided to open the holiday floodgates, we offer further options, like a mezcal-spiked drinking caramel that’s poised to give hot chocolate a head rush, wedges of buttermilk cake with poached pears and a cloud of crème fraîche, and red-wine-marinated skirt steak that could become a weeknight staple in the busy days to come.
