What to do with Leftovers from Thanksgiving

So thanksgiving is now over and what do you do with all the leftovers. Well, there are different options. If you had a veggie tray, use that, the turkey and the carcass and make turkey soup. Or you can use the veggies and the turkey to make a casserole, or a pot pie. The thoughts are just endless.

To make the soup, I would first cook the turkey carcass for a bit, and get a nice rich stock. Pop the carcass into a pot, with enough water to cover about an inch over the carcass. Let it sit in there for about 3-4 hours. When that's done, I strain the liquid, so no bones end up in the soup. Put the stock back into the pot, or the slow cooker. Add the turkey and the veggies, and let it cook and there you have a nice soup. I would season with salt, pepper, garlic. And for the veggies, carrots, celery onion, brocoli, any of that would be good in there.
