Leftover Turkey Soup

Thanksgiving is in two days. I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by and somehow we are already approaching the holidays.  Things have been especially crazy around these parts with selling a house, moving and trying to buy a house. It has definitely been a stressful and not so fun process but I am trying to stay positive and look to the end result.

Needless to say I am looking forward to Thanksgiving so I can put my feet up and relax with family.  I plan to do a little cooking with my Mom and then enjoy a good turkey dinner. Today’s recipe for Leftover Turkey Soup is perfect for all of that leftover turkey you might have.  Some people like to make a stock out of the bones from the turkey which works great or you can use whatever broth you have on hand.

I like to make Leftover Turkey Soup the day after Thanksgiving because it gives me something light to eat after such a huge, filling meal.
