Thanksgiving Leftovers – Turkey Noodle Soup

20131203-115023.jpg

Sick for the holidays? Cannot decide what to do with those overstuffed containers of turkey? Did you separate the lean white from fatty dark? No worries- this soup does not matter.
I am sick. I always get sick before Christmas. I plan on it. When I go grocery shopping I throw in a new tub of menthol sab, tea, and flu medicine. I usually always have noodles, frozen vegetables, and broth on hand.
This year my kids and I were infected with the flu a couple days after Thanksgiving. Lots of liquids and rest was what the doctor prescribed. Voila, turkey noodle soup.
I highly recommend this soup is made the instant even a thought pops into your head questioning your health. Just do it. You won’t want to stand in the kitchen making soup for your family sick.
It’s really easy.

Turkey Noodle Soup

1 turkey (for lack of a better word) carcass, bones and all
1 pot 1/2 full of water
1 teaspoon salt (more/less)
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
4 cups turkey meat, cubed
2 cups chicken broth
One bag of whole wheat noodles (truly any noodles you want)
2 cups of each frozen vegetable -of your liking- carrots, peas, corn, onion

Literally throw this all in a pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer for a couple hours. Pull out the bones before dishing bowls out. Serve with left over rolls. Get better!
