Interested in some ideas for post-Thanksgiving day recipes to take care of holiday leftovers? Folks can catch Mahasti Vafaie, founder and co-owner of Tomato Head, on local station WBIR Saturday, Nov. 21, from about 8:15am – 8:30am cooking up a turkey soup that may be more memorable than the actual turkey day feast.
