Turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, turkey gravy, turkey hash, turkey a la king, and gallons of turkey soup!

Plant it in my turkey garden. Someday I am going to have a spring turkey harvest. Eat a little and plant the rest.

Home winterization... filling all those little cracks and gaps exposed by the cold autumn wind.

BTW, Multi, I see you've already claimed post of the day with your christening contribution.

RI-Why do you think mountain lions have increased in Kansas? It has coincided nicely with the rise of wild turkeys.

multi - I was actually paraphrasing a movie quote. I've never had turkey soup myself. Anyone know from which movie that quote is?

I wonder if you can eat those things.... That would take care of our leftovers...

Turkey sandwhiches with lots of mayo and Turkey and Noodles. Not soup but the thick stuff.

Leftover skulls, leftover turkey, the coincidences of life.Some times those skulls just scream to be stuffed with turkey... or maybe they just scream

Turkey and noodles over a heaping pile of mashed potatoes. Pure comfort.

Lunch on Friday will be Turkey soup and a turkey sandwich with lots of cranberry sauce in the sandwich and lots of veg in the soup. Also have a good recipe for turkey/noodle/broccoli casserole with a topping of grated mozza. Too bad we aren't celebrating Thanksgiving here today.we do that in October. I am now scouting up a goose, a big goose for Christmas. we love our goose at Christmas. I will brine it. Have any of you gals ever brined a turkey? the result is the best, BEST tasting turkey or goose you will ever have, I will never roast a plain turkey ever again.

I'm going to put the carcass in a plastic bag, then a paper bag, then a garbage bag, and put it all in the trash can. It will be called turplaspapergarcan.

Keith, I just spit half of my leftover turkey sammich onto my monitor when I read your comment. Classic!You get 110% for that one!!!!!!!!

Sorry, multi. Wasn't meaining to mess with your head. It's just everytime I hear of leftover turkey all I can think of is the end of one of my favorite movies, "A Christmas Story", where the Bumpas dogs eat it and adult Ralphie says:"The heavenly aroma still hung in the house. But it was gone, all gone! No turkey! No turkey sandwiches! No turkey salad! No turkey gravy! Turkey Hash! Turkey a la King! Or gallons of turkey soup! Gone, ALL GONE!"

I'm putting the bones out in my gopher holes. maybe I can choke a few out so the neighbor kids will stop screaming at the pile of rodent corpses next to the roll-off. If not, at least I can plug the holes. I always try to use everything.
