Turkey Stock Soup

The turkey carcass simmered in my big stainless steel pot all day! Then, I strained the skin, scraps and bones through our wire mesh strainer and cooled the liquid in the fridge. After it was cool I skimmed the fat off the stock and heated it up adding freshly steamed kale and frozen corn and salt and pepper and ground coriander voila! The best soup in the world!

Loving Leftovers

I love leftovers even more than the original meal! 'Tis the season of leftover pie for breakfast; pumpkin, mincemeat, apple, and blueberry! And for lunch and supper leftover turkey, corn, mashed potatoes, collard greens, and stuffing. This year the turkey disappeared too fast! Maybe I will roast another turkey (outdoors) in May. Today I am dreaming of baked ham and lamb. And I'm dreaming of making a chocolate almond biscotti. But maybe first I'll make spaghetti and meatballs or meatloaf for a change of pace. Share your meals with hungry friends. Teach a young person the joys of cooking and sharing a meal together at the table.

Onion Delight

Take a huge white onion and chop it up and saute in a bit of olive oil until translucent or even slightly browned. Then, scramble two or three beaten eggs, add some diced tomatoes (canned is fine) and a splash of soy sauce! Stir until the eggs are done. In this dish the cooked onions are playing the role similar to cellophane noodles in Asian dishes. It's a fast and delicious meal!
