Sorry to hear it.

I didn't mean it in any disrespectful way.

I hope your week gets better.

So now that this little group hug is over, I will tell you all about my turkey soup that is simmering on the stove.

After Christmas dinner was all over and done with, I tossed the turkey carcass and the neck and gizzards in the freezer.

Last night before going to bed I dumped that frozen carcass in a pot. I added a big quartered onion, three carrots cut into maybe 4 inch pieces, a bunch of celery and celery hearts, some parsnips, some bay leaves, sea salt, marjoram and a pile of peppercorns. Filled that pot with water, brought it to a boil and let it simmer overnight. This morning the broth was ready. Nice to wake up to the smell of turkey.



So I proceeded to strain the stock into another pot. I was left with a bunch of soggy vegetables and a lot of meat falling off the carcass. I removed all the bones and chopped/mushed the vegetables and ended up with a lot of sweet turkey meat and vegetable goodness.







The pictures don't really do it justice. There was "a lot" of meat and vegetables. I dumped all the good stuff back in the pot with the broth, and added some diced sweet potato, more celery and a pile of chopped parsley, as well as the rest of the turkey leftovers.







Added some Knorr chicken powder and more sea salt and pepper and brought to a steady simmer to cook the sweet potato. About 20 minuted ago I added a pile of orzo, which is now cooking and should give the soup just the right consistency.



We have nice bread and unsalted butter.



Should be tasty. I'm starving!

That sounds delicious but it looks like you are using my brew pot.
I have a carcass and leftovers.
Maybe I'll try a turkey chili concoction.
Your bread looks amazing.

I used to make my own bread when I was young and full of piss and vinegar, but there's so many places to buy almost any kind of great bread you can dream of all around me that I caved in and decided it was more trouble than it was worth .

We do have great bread in Montreal, that's for sure!

And it's everywhere. Cheers mlkco!

Turkey chili you say? Tell me more.

Thank you all for your concern, The Jeep is repairable, he lost it on ice, and over steered into the guardrails. There was enough snow to soften the impact, otherwise, I would be Jeep shopping right now..
