a bottle (750ml) contains 5 (150ml) glasses. Which is a restaurant measure of a glass.
6oz = 177ml (according to google). So 750/177 is about 4 glasses, not 6!

My mom always cooks too much so we will have leftovers for a few days. I always seem to enjoy the leftovers more then eating it on thanksgiving day.

There is no such thing as too much food on Thanksgiving...we go all out! My mom usually does 2 turkeys, a huge pan of stuffing, etc. Then we split up the leftovers and everyone takes some home. I don't think we've ever had problems running out of food!

These are great tips, but one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is all the leftovers! It's not the day after Thanksgiving without a big turkey sammy with cranberry sauce and stuffing! :D Mmmm can't wait! :D:D:D

Most of the food items around Thanksgiving-time are on sale any way, so I always try to buy more. It's easy to send people home with leftovers or save a bunch for yourself. Darn it, I just seem to buy waaaay too many pies every year. Gee, don't know how that happens ....
