Truly one of the best comfort foods known to man(besides a glass of wine!)...
Turkey noodle soup
We were given a 14# turkey recently and pretty much re-created our Thanksgiving menu on Tuesday.
Lots of leftovers for those that just want a plate of turkey and fixins'....
A steaming bowl of turkey noodle soup!
I choose soup.
To the turkey carcass (not pictured here for obvious reasons...just plain ugly) add maybe 2 gallons of water.
Let simmer for a couple of hours till meat has fallen off the bone.
Remove carcass and add huge bowl of chopped: onions (2), carrots (8 large), and whole bag of chopped celery.
Simmer maybe 1 hour, or till veggies are tender.
Sometimes I will add a bit of Knorr brand Tomato Boullion, and Chicken Boullion, depending on how flavorful the broth is.
At this point I add a qt container of store bought chicken STOCK... not broth...
Homemade noodles go in next...and when they are homemade, they literally take only about 5 minutes till tender, yet chewy.
Homemade noodles are SO easy! If you have never tried them, give it a shot.
Far easier than homemade bread or rolls.
