Curried Turkey Carcass Soup

OMG! Have you ever wished for something for a long time and it finally happens? That for me is the house being finished. Well, I am finishing my last task this week before the final cleaning at the end of the week. I installed the final floor this past weekend and Tony is finishing up the trim and a few other things. It’s been a long time coming. I’m so excited!

The final recipe for the Thanksgiving turkey is for the leftover carcass. I again decided to make my own recipe. I still have some leftover wine that I will add. I will also be adding a ton of veggies to round out the dish and provide many vitamins and minerals. Finally, I am doing an Indian inspired soup by adding in some curry powder and chili. Bone in poultry is so economical. I love getting three meals out of one whole bird.

Here are the stats:

Here is the recipe:
