Soup's On...

I heard on the news the other night that a "cold front" was coming thru Florida and our temps would drop "considerably". (music to my ears!)

I slept with my window open and my small fan on.. when I got up it was 68 degrees in my apartment!!!  (I was ecstatic!).. this is the perfect day to make my Turkey Vegetable Soup!

Boo found a "warm spot" to rest while I cooked.

..and so I began...

In the beginning there are the veggies..  (garlic/ onions/ celery/carrots/ cabbage/ squash/ broccoli/ potatoes/ rutabaga/ white turnips/ peas/ & lima beans)

... and the turkey bones and legs to cook...

I diced some garlic and onions and celery and carrots to be cooked with the bones..

(da bones!)


After 3 hours I poured the broth out into a strainer and new pot to catch the bones and meat...


Added all the diced veggies and picked the meat off the bones and bingo!.... turkey vegetable soup!


Nothing to it!

kelly: it is good! the broth jelled overnight which means it wasn't too watery! this soup and all the veggies!

chris: I don't know why you look forward to it either LOL..wish you were here to eat some! I have soup up the A-- !!!! (and I don't like to freeze it as the carrots and potatoes change consistancy and I don't like them then)

You know, I really could eat some of that right now. Hardly anything in the way of food appeals much at the moment... but that does.

I'm glad the weather finally got cold enough for you to be inspired to make your soup! I always love the pictures of your turkey soup. I need to cook a turkey before Christmas so I can have leftovers for soup and sandwiches!
