Turkey Leftovers

My sweet friend, Rachel, sent me home with the leftover turkey on Thanksgiving.  She honestly explained that they wouldn't eat it or use the leftovers and she'd rather give it to me and know it would get used.  

We had turkey pot pie and quesadilla with turkey  that weekend.  Early the next week we had turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy.  Then I put the rest in the freezer with all the turkey stock from boiling the bones.  The turkey made a lot of stock!  I was really pleased to put so much in the freezer, especially as I love soup this time of year.  

Almost 2 gallons of stock and 4 cups of turkey.

I ran out of masking tape and then the painter's tape I had been using in it's place.  So I dug this out of my desk.  I found it during the big office clean-up and knew I probably wouldn't be using it to "cover 5 lines of type" so I put it to use labeling the freezer containers.  Yay for a new use of this obsolete product!

  1. We smoked our turkey. Smoked turkey bones make smokey stock which Is not very versatile. Only downside of the smoker...


So, what do you think?
