Now that my apartment is all decorated... (see below)

I decided , since it was a cool 56 degrees when I got up this morning that it would be a good day to make the turkey soup!

When I saw this photo of the "bones" cooking I couldn't help humming to myself, "dem bones, dem bones, dem.. turkey bones!" heh.. never mind.

While they cooked I began cutting veggies... I use many of the same veggies every time.. fresh celery, onions, carrots, potatoes, zucchini, rutabaga, broccoli, frozen peas and lima beans, can tomatoes.. this time I also added frozen brussel sprouts!mmmmm, can't wait to eat it!

six hours later I had this....

Ahhhh now I don't have to cook all week!!!!   yiii hawwww!

Phhht! 59° was our -high- for today up here. I consider this (and by this I mean 32°) cold weather to be an insult to my Floridian residency. Bring back the warm weather please... If I wanted to be cold I would move north ;p

Boy! You REALLY put in everything but the kitchen sink! I usually just put in some onion, corn, lima beans, peas, carrots - maybe some potatoe -- unless I'm planning noodles or rice... I did dump some asparagus in last time... that was good. I've never tried broccoli or brussels sprouts in my soups. That does sound good though! Sure looks YUMMY! Enjoy!

Oh! I LOVE your Christmas tree! :)

Christmas tree and homemade turkey soup! Both look wonderful. I especially like your ingenous little tree. I scrolled down your other posts and had to drool over the Karl pics. I am actually starting a drawing of him as McCoy, but don't know how much I will get done over the holidays. Still have a ton of Christmas shopping to do. Having been at the medical meeting all week stole a lot of time from shopping. Did manage to get my tree up before I left. Downsized it this year and I am very happy with it. Will try to post later in the week. Vala3

Hey Mama!!! I've been waiting for this post and now that you've posted it I am salivating like CRAZY!!! I wish I lived closer...I'd so come stop by for a bowl. Have you ever made Turkey Tettrizini? That's another good one to make with the left overs. And once again, I absolutely adore your tree :) I think it's perfect!

Just been watching Jamie Oliver make turkey and leek pie from his leftover turkey, it looked wonderful, but not as wonderful as your soup, Pat. Lay a place for me, I'm on my way...

Dang, your soup always looks so good! And Brussel Sprouts? I've never thought about adding them to soup.

I believe that you could freeze some of this and ship it through the mail to me. I'll be waiting! ;)

Oh it looks really yummy! Now I'm craving my mom's soup which I won't get this year *boo*! It's delcious though. She makes it with V8 juice, chicken breast, and cabbage. It will stain if it gets on you but put some homemade cornbread in it and I could care less!

Nothing says winter like a bowl of fresh home made soup and I love the idea of throwing everything in.

jj:I don't want snow but the cooler weather gives me energy so I like it!

Melli & Vala: emailed you both

Hey son: nope never made Tettrizini this is made with bones and meat on the legs, wings and thighs.. this and chicken soup I make the same loaded with veggies.. it's the only time I get veggies!

cath: lots of things you can make with the meat you cut off to eat.. but soup is good 'cause it's made with what no one eats much of!

Tink: never had that sort of soup but ya know what? It sound good!

hi anime: it's all good.. i love turkey!

book pusher: that's true. Soup and stew good winter meals.. now if It would be winter here in fla this would all make sense!
