I realize that it’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything, but thanks to Thanksgiving leftovers, I’m able to have something to post about. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I bought one of the little turkeys that Safeway had on sale for $.99/lb. I cooked it up, and got several meals out of it, and of course boiled up the bones to make some turkey broth. It was quite good and strong, because I didn’t end up using any of the turkey drippings to make gravy, so I could just add them to the stock.
So after letting it sit in the freezer of my fridge for a couple of weeks, I pulled it out, and took most of it to make a pot of soup. I’ve get about 2 or 3 cups worth to use in a later soup of some sort.
Making the Turkey Soup
I like my soups good and chunky, with a bit of a kick to them. So, I start out by adding 4 small yellow onions and 4 cloves of garlic.
While all this was going on I also had time to roast a chicken that had been gifted to me by other friends last week. It’s wonderful having thoughtful and giving friends. The Thanksgiving holiday may be over, but I still have so much to be thankful for.
