Some people think the big challenge of the Thanksgiving feast is preparing the turkey. But what to do with the leftovers can be an even bigger challenge.

If you're tired of the same old turkey soup we're here to help. For free.

All you have to do is tell us in 150 words or less why you should be one of the 12 readers selected for Wishbone U., our ninth annual Thanksgiving cooking boot camp. This year's class will focus on innovative leftovers.

The hands-on class will be 4 p.m. Oct. 13 at Apron's Cooking School at Publix Supermarket in the Shoppes of Citrus Park in Tampa. Include your name, age, city and daytime phone number and send entries to Wishbone U., c/o Taste, Tampa Bay Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731, or email features@tampabay.com. Put THANKSGIVING in the subject line. Cooks as young as 13 will be considered.

The deadline is Oct. 4, and winners will be notified by Oct. 7.

Participants must be willing to be photographed during the class, because it's not just their skills we want to improve. The experience — and recipes — will be shared in Taste on Nov. 20.

    MOUNT DORA — Hank Scott steps out of his pickup between the long rows and snaps off an ear that grows about bellybutton-high on the forehead-high stalks.

    Should the Karate Kid series have stopped at the original? Probably, but if we didn't have Karate Kid 3 would will still have the lost song Listen To Her Heart by the Little River Band?

  5. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.
