Whether you served Thanksgiving dinner at home or ventured elsewhere, chances are that, like most Americans, you have piles of reusable containers filled with leftovers stacked up in your fridge. A large meal with friends and family can mean an excess of fun, but it also results in an excess of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and other fixings for days following the actual meal. You might not be able to see the back of your fridge, and you might wonder how much more turkey you can eat, but don’t fret!
The holiday season is upon us, and for many families it’s time to think about getting a Christmas tree. Choosing a tree can be a cherished family tradition and a great way to spend some time outdoors. Growing up in Boston, a big part of my childhood Christmas was going with my Dad to choose a tree. We’d bring it home, and my Mom (having taken the considerable time to untangle all of the lights from last year), would have them out with the ornaments and ready to hang.
