Cranberyy-Orange relish with mint
Pulse two 12-ounce bags fresh (or frozen, thawed) cranberries in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl. Finely grate 2 teaspoons orange zest from 1 of 4 navel oranges; set aside. Using a sharp paring knife, remove peel and white pith from oranges. Working over a medium bowl, cut between membranes to release orange segments. Coarsely chop segments; add to cranberries. Stir 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup minced red onion, 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint, 1 tablespoon minced peeled ginger, and reserved zest into cranberry mixture. Cover; let stand at room tem-perature for 2 hours. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.

But there are always enough leftover turkey and vegetables for more than one meal, and eating sandwiches all weekend gets tiring, no matter how good they are. Enter this turkey pot pie, the best new resting place for your Thanksgiving remains.
