There were enough Thanksgiving Dinner leftovers so that I had two more turkey dinners and a couple of sandwiches. A 14 lb. turkey goes a long way for two people. Duane kept what he wanted and brought me the bones and some leftover meat.
Monday I cooked the bones for a couple of hours, strained off the broth, picked the remaining meat from the bones, and added more leftover meat to the broth. Later I added diced potatoes, carrots, onions and corn, all from my stash of dehydrated vegetables. Tossed in a few chicken bouillon cubes for flavor along with dried thyme and parsley and let that simmer the rest of the afternoon.
Duane took home a bucket of soup, added some seasonings of his own and declared it to be pretty darned good soup. He was right. I have been eating off of my half the past couple of days. Tonite I will add dumplings for supper.
And then I believe I have gotten as much mileage from that turkey as I can. I will be officially turkeyed out. :)
