Leftover Holiday Turkey to Turkey Vegetable Soup

The last of the turkey is going into the Crock Pot to make a delicious and healthy soup today! I shredded the leftover turkey meat and stuffed a leg and two wings into the pot.  I added zucchini, yellow squash, celery, carrots, green beans and onions. A Can of diced tomatoes, 4 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth, 4 cups water, 1 tbsp Italian seasoning, 2 bay leafs, 1 tsp red pepper flakes,1 tsp nutmeg, salt and pepper. Later, I’ll remove the turkey bones and skin and add a cup of brown rice pasta right towards the end. Then this soup will sit over nite in fridge and be our lunch for the next couple of days at work! 🙂

Very excited to make my lunch for tomorrow..Going to use the Fresh Cranberry and Blackberry Preserve that I made on Sunday with 2 tbsp of goat cheese spread on top of a whole wheat wrap and topped with thinly sliced fat free turkey breast. 🙂 These are the leftovers I actually enjoy eating..I call them “Do-Over” because I have to use the previous ingredients to make something new..That’s just how I am!  🙂

You could even do a wrap post-Thanksgiving , using the cranberries, turkey and stuffing..and a little gravy too! Just wrap it all up and then heat them up in toaster oven at 400 for about 10 min 🙂

Make any meal into something new!

I made Roasted Tomato Soup with Brown Rice and then used some of it as a base for Italian Stuffed Peppers…
