Turkey & Noodles Using Thanksgiving Leftovers

Yep, it's that time already. That time where everyone is tired of eating Thanksgiving Day leftovers! All of the yummiest of the yummy is already gone, so time to move on. When we hit this point, I take the turkey bones (we try not to waste anything!) and create something new! I make Turkey and Noodles!

Leftover Turkey Bones
Celery, Chopped
Onion, Chopped
Egg Noodles
Salt & Pepper

Boil the turkey bones in just enough water to cover most but not all of the bones until the remaining meat is falling off. Strain the bones into something where you are reserving the liquid you boiled them in. Put the liquid back in the same pot you used to boil the bones in. Add your uncooked egg noodles, celery and onion to this pot and slow boil while you de-bone the turkey. When the noodles are soft enough, add the turkey back to the pot, add a little salt and pepper and voila, you have a new yummy meal using those same leftovers everyone is now tired of looking at let alone eating!

This is a big hit at my house! I serve with dinner rolls. Last night I also served with some leftover sweet peas and potato salad.
