Leftovers. The word, in most families, is synonymous with the Thanksgiving holiday. Following the recipe for the Center City sandwich, found at South Street's Chef's Market (where all of the sandwiches are named after parts of Philadelphia), you can use your own roasted turkey, as the Chef's Market does theirs. But with this sandwich, you'll escape the world of stuffing and cranberry sauce, because the Center City sandwich adds a French twist with Brie cheese, honey mustard sauce, lettuce and tomato, all on a French roll.

Police Department employees pack boxes of turkey dinners to feed the city's poor and needy families during the holidays. About 50 personnel took part in the department's 22nd annual Operation Thanksgiving program.

It's that season again - turkey time - though not for the reasons you might expect at El Rey near Rittenhouse Square. "Pavo con mole" - turkey with spicy-sweet mole sauce - is a traditional dish at several big Mexican events, the latest being the "Día de los Muertos. " For the creepy-fun of Day of the Dead festivities in early November, chef Dionicio Jimenez naturally chose a "black mole," which differs from the more common, chocolaty "poblano" variation in that it is more complex, more bittersweet, more redolent of almonds and peanuts than sesame, and kissed with the smoke of tortilla ashes.

The safe way to thaw a frozen turkey is in the refrigerator, but often there isn't enough room in the refrigerator to make that a practical option. If your turkey is reasonably small, and you have a microwave oven, you can thaw it there. Thawing procedures vary by oven, however, so you will need to check the manual carefully for instructions. You should plan to thaw the turkey right before cooking. A somewhat more cumbersome method is to place the turkey in a heavy-duty freezer bag and carefully tie it closed.

The petty, imbecilic way both Greece and Turkey competed over a pile of rocks off the Turkish coast, with warships lining up against each other before American diplomat Richard C. Holbrooke cooled them off, surely demonstrates that when they behave like this neither deserves to be a member of the European Union. Yet one is in and one is out. One is regarded, for all its posturing over relations with Turkey, Cyprus and Macedonia, as European, civilized, Christian and economically mature.

AKCAKALE, Turkey - Turkey sanctioned further military action against Syria on Thursday and bombarded targets across the border with artillery for a second day, raising the stakes in a conflict that increasingly is bleeding outside Syrian territory. Although both sides moved to calm tensions, Turkey's parliament overwhelmingly approved a bill allowing the military to conduct cross-border operations into Syria - making clear that Ankara has options that do not involve its Western or Arab allies.

A number of things about the new American republic, including the choice of the eagle as a national symbol, annoyed Benjamin Franklin. He would have preferred the turkey, and shared his thoughts on the subject in this letter written to his daughter from France in 1784. (This selection was provided by Roy Goodman, research librarian of the American Philosophical Society.) For my own part, I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character; he does not get his living honestly.

ANKARA, Turkey - Turkey said Monday that it would push NATO to consider Syria's downing of a Turkish jet as an attack on the whole military alliance. The announcement came on the eve of a meeting by NATO's governing body to discuss the incident. Despite deep frustration among many NATO countries over the conflict in Syria, where the opposition says President Bashar al-Assad's crackdown on an increasingly armed popular uprising has killed 14,000 people, it's highly unlikely the military alliance will take armed action against the Arab state.

ANKARA, Turkey - Thousands of demonstrators on Sunday staged the largest protest yet against plans by Turkey's Islamic-rooted government to curb abortion, which critics say will amount to a virtual ban. Around 3,000 women - their ages ranging from 20 to 60 years old - gathered at a square in Istanbul's Kadikoy district. Some carried banners that read "my body, my choice" and shouted antigovernment slogans. Many of the women were accompanied by husbands and boyfriends.

After learning about the suicide bombings at two synagogues, Neve Shalom and Beth Israel, in Istanbul on Saturday, I had a terrible sense of d?j? vu. I began sending e-mails seeking answers to two questions: Had any friends or acquaintances been hurt or killed? Luckily, no. And second, who were the bombers? Istanbul, and by extension Turkey, has become my second home. I know Istanbul's streets and neighborhoods as well as the neighborhoods of Philadelphia. And because I know people of many faiths - Jewish, Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, devout and moderate Muslims - I have put great hope in Turkey as an example to the West that there is a bright future for a predominantly Muslim country with a secular constitution.

There may be a chance that Dario Saric will wear a 76ers uniform sooner than expected. The Sixers are negotiating with Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League to bring the forward to the NBA next season, according to Eurobasket.com. The Sixers acquired Saric's rights last year in the NBA draft. They traded their first-round pick, Elfrid Payton (10th overall), to the Orlando Magic for Saric, who was selected 12th, plus a 2017 top-11-protected pick and a 2015 second-rounder.

Their classmates may be at the pool or on the beach this summer, but seven Hill School students plan to be in Turkey, volunteering at a Syrian refugee camp. The students, all girls, will travel as part of the Give A Hand program, started last year by Hülya Kösematoglu, a sophomore at the Pottstown boarding school. In addition to helping the refugees, the goal of the girls is to learn about local life and Turkish culture. Kösematoglu, who moved to the United States two years ago from Istanbul, said she realized the Western world has a drastically different view of her home.

LAST WEEK was bad for Holocaust deniers. Oskar Groening, the "accountant of Auschwitz," testified he had personally seen up to 1.5 million Jews "murdered in Auschwitz. I was there," he said. Elsewhere, Thursday marked the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, carried out against Armenians (Christians) by someone. Who? Turkey (Muslims) will get mad if I say. Earlier this month, Pope Francis rattled Turkey's cage when he called the slaughter "the first genocide of the 20th century.

DENVER - The adjustment, to say the least, has been strenuous. New country, unfamiliar teammates, different style of play. Those are just some of the things Furkan Aldemir has encountered since leaving his native Turkey and coming over to join the 76ers on Dec. 15. After slowly getting worked into the rotation and seeing action in 17 of 18 games, Aldemir was relegated to the bench and played in only five of the next 15. But with a contract...

76ers coach Brett Brown smiled Wednesday when he was asked about first-round pick Dario Saric. The Sixers acquired the 6-foot-10 power forward in a draft-day trade with the Orlando Magic. The Croatian has a contract with Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League that may prevent him from playing in the NBA until the 2016-17 season. But the Sixers are keeping tabs on his development, and they love what they're seeing. Saric, 20, was named the Euroleague MVP for November.

For many of us, Thanksgiving dinner is all about tradition - re-creating the same, satisfying, gravy-soaked turkey coma we remember from our childhoods. But once the brining, basting, and bingeing of Thanksgiving Day are behind us, well, that's when things get interesting. There's no wrong way to make a Thanksgiving leftover sandwich. But, as some of the region's inventive chefs proved, there are plenty of right ways. We asked the chefs to innovate, and they delivered: turkey-and-stuffing scrapple to cure your tryptophan hangover, open-faced turkey towers served on slabs of stuffing, a Taiwanese-style turkey salad sandwich, and a vegan French dip with a schmear of mashed potato, roasted mushrooms, and gravy.

What does it take to make Thanksgiving dinner for 1,000 people? About eight volunteers, and about 700 pounds of turkey, and equal portions of mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potato pies and green beans. On Monday evening, a group from the Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia began preparing homemade dinners they'll serve this Thanksgiving holiday. By Tuesday afternoon, they were finishing their prep work, which will be presented Thursday at the Salvation Army's Soups On!

THERE COULD BE a new face on the floor for the 76ers pretty soon, and it's someone who fans have been keeping an eye on for a little bit. Forward Furkan Aldemir, a 6-9, 230-pound rebounder from Turkey, terminated his 3-year contract with his Turkish team, Galatasaray. The Sixers acquired his rights, along with those of Royce White, from the Houston Rockets in 2013. General manager Sam Hinkie did not accept a request to talk about the possible signing. A source said that nothing has been finalized, though something could be announced within the next few days.

Cory Gallant thinks Thanksgiving Eve has become a more important date for nightlife than Halloween, or even New Year's Eve. People coming home for the holiday, reuniting with friends and family, make the evening particularly lively, said Gallant, general manager of Lucky Strike Lounge & Lanes in Center City. "It's about personal relationships, not just drinking," Gallant explained. And if the club and bar scene isn't for you, there are plenty of other places to meet up with the old gang before the bird is carved.
