Leftovers!

Turkey Day (I mean Thanksgiving LOL) is almost here and that means one thing. Ok, two things-wonderful family time and LEFTOVERS! Here is a recipe that everyone in my family loves.


Turkey Noodle Soup
A delicious comfort food!

Ingredients:
6 cups chicken (or turkey) broth
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped celery
1/8 tsp ground pepper
½ tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp minced garlic (I actually used dehydrated garlic)
2 cups chopped cooked turkey or chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup (I used the lowfat variety)
2-3 cups dried egg noodles

Directions:
1. In a large soup pot, add the broth, veggies and seasonings. Bring to a boil then turn down the heat and simmer for about 20-30 minutes.
2. Add the meat and dried noodles and simmer for about 10 minutes.
3. Add the soup and simmer for another 10 minutes or until the noodles are soft and the soup is done.
4. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I didn’t use any salt because I used some chicken bouillon granules for the broth which are already salty.)

And here are some websites with lots of ideas for using up that leftover turkey:
