Todd: So I guess you had a lot of leftovers.
Jim: Yeah! I’m going to be eating turkey sandwiches for the next week.
Sarah: We had a really nice Thanksgiving potluck party at my work today.
Chrissy: Did a lot of people bring food?
Sarah: Yeah, everybody did a great job. In fact, I even got to bring home some leftovers.
“leftovers” is a term used to describe the extra food that you have after a party or meal. A lot of Americans like to take home the leftovers and then eat them the next day.
