But really answer my burning turkey question.

  1. We had turkey for Thanksgiving but with our big family there wasn't much left over. We still have a turkey in the freezer though. This recipe looks really good.

  3. This is a great recipe! I always freeze my remaining turkey for using in soups but, I never thought to make pot pie soup. This is a great way to use your left over turkey especially since my kids say they get tired of turkey the next day! Maybe I'll bring down some turkey over the weekend and make this.

  4. I like to make up homemade freezer meals. Individual portions of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy and freeze. Then defrost and reheat for yummy tv dinners.

  5. This soup looks delicious...especially on a cold day like today.
    I like to buy turkey breasts when they are on sale. They cook great in the crockpot. We enjoy them throughout the year.

  6. I have to admit I enjoy turkey only on Thanksgiving, by Christmas I'm over the thanksgiving food and ready for something a bit different. In general my family and I like to make other main dishes for the rest of the year. Roast, gumbo, crab, those are more on our menu. Love this recipe though! I can totally see myself incorporting these dishes.
