Day After Thanksgiving Doings!

While the rest of the world is out shopping on Black Friday, I am staying home, avoiding the traffic and crowds and cooking! 🙂


Okay, I know…you are asking me why they heck I am posting a picture of a pot lid!  Thanksgiving is a family day to me and that means memories.  This pot lid brings back great family memories.  It used to have a nice black plastic knob on it, but after years of use it broke.  I can remember my mom hollering for my dad to fix the darn thing. lol  This is his fix…a wooden dowel cut to size and screwed in place…it’s survived 25 years!  Today it is covering the makings of one of  Thanksgiving Thursday blessings…turkey stock!

Granted it’s not pretty but, I can guarantee that once it is strained, it will be wonderful!  It’s just the the two of us so we still have plenty of other turkey day goodies to eat for the next few days.  So this OMG, wish you could smell it stock, will go into the freezer for future use…maybe this soup recipe???

Day After Turkey Day Soup!


2 ribs celery, diced

1 medium onion, diced

1 cup carrots, diced small

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 1/2 quarts turkey broth

2 tablespoons Rub’n Season Poultry

4 cups cooked turkey meat, cubed

2 cups frozen corn

1 cup frozen peas

3 cups mashed potatoes


In a 6 quart pot, saute’ celery, onion and carrots in the olive oil, over medium heat, for 5 minutes. Add broth, Rub’n Season Poultry and the turkey. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer with the cover on for 30 minutes. Add corn and peas and return to a simmer and cook for an additional 10 minutes, uncovered. Add the mashed potatoes a little at a time, stirring as you add them to blend into the soup. Continue to simmer until heated through.


This is a great recipe to play with! Dump your leftover green beans, stuffing, etc. You can add just about anything except the pumpkin pie! Lol BTW, we used frozen veggies because we didn’t have any of ours leftover. 🙂


Serve with a crisp salad and a slice of fresh bread or that leftover roll and enjoy the perfect day after Thanksgiving meal!

      We’re doing the actual soup today…the pot is loaded with left overs, or as we more commonly call it…dump soup! 🙂
