Turkeyed Out? Black Friday, Red (Sauce) Alert

By: Debra Puchalla

At a random moment tucked between November 10 and November 17 I started dreaming beyond turkey. The buildup of birds every which way, and sides upon sides all homey and comforting, simply got to be too much of a cornucopia. So Black Friday for me is Red Sauce Friday.

While everyone else is grabbing leftovers-- sandwiches, chili and soups, grab a jar of tomato sauce. There are tons of recipes to make with it with nary a shopping trip. Indeed, the day after Thanksgiving, I am grateful for Food Network Magazine's 50 Things to Make with a Jar of Tomato Sauce, specifically the Eggs in Purgatory, Mussels Marinara and those Pizza Potatoes, chockful of a different sort of stuffing.

Let the wild holiday rumpus begin--after you're sated with something saucy.
