Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

You're not still doing it are you? Perhaps you crave two slices of bread, a little Miracle Whip and then a spoonful of anything and everything from the apothecary of Tupperware in your fridge? Maybe you prefer your leftovers on small plates, microwaved individually so you can watch a golf ball glob of gravy melt decadently over your potatoes. You could be a strict utilitarian, standing by the refrigerator door, fork in hand, feeding your cravings bite by bite.

Whatever your left-over strategy, it's time to stop.

Party's over people. According to the Mayo Clinic and the USDA, unless you froze your turkey bits, you're playing Russian roulette with the ol' G.I. tract if you indulge anymore food you prepared on Thanksgiving.

Make it a point to clean out your refrigerator tonight. There's lots more holiday cooking to come.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
