The turkey we served on Christmas Day weighed in at 9.76 kilos or 21.5 pounds..
It served ten and then I sent home two care packages, one for my sister and her husband and one for my parents.
We had hot turkey sandwiches on Boxing Day and then Carlie had some left overs one night this week..and there is still enough for one more sandwich. Not bad for a 21 pound turkey..for just over $20….18 servings…
That is the biggest advantage to being the host and hostess for Christmas Dinner..the left overs!!!
Now what to do with that Turkey carcass?..Turkey soup gets my vote..
..as the carcass simmers away the smell of turkey once again fills the condo..
..more chopping and dicing this morning..
..and then through the magic of ‘blogging’
the finished product..
..this pot of soup is going on a car ride with Carlie....lunch for her boyfriend, Aaron..don’t forget the cheese biscuits, fresh from the oven..
..sure hope they enjoy it..
Good thing there is enough to make a big pot for us too, with more than enough for yet another meal or two..
A turkey that ‘keeps on giving’…or rather ‘feeding’..
Dinner time..better go..the soup’s on!!
