    Angel,

    Drag out a big pot or a crock pot that is big enough to hold the turkey carcass.

    Cut up two onions and put them on the bottom of the pot, then set the turkey carcass and any other parts you have left that have some meat
    or turkey fat on them. Chop up a couple of stalks of celery and throw
    them in the pot. Chop up a couple of carrots and do the same. Add about
    a teaspoon of "seasoning salt" some pepper and a clove of crushed garlic
    or a half teaspoon of garlic salt.

    Turn on the heat to medium if on the stove or high in the crock pot. When
    the meat comes off the bone, you are done. It usually takes about about an hour on the stove or an hour and a half on high in the crock pot.

    It's called Turkey Soup.

    Fish out the carcass and any bones ... add some cooked noodles or rice
    and pig out. If you had a BIG turkey, you can make enough soup to last
    three or four meals. Wait until it cools some and then put some in a freezer
    bag or container and freeze it. Your good to go, until it's gone.

    If you have a bunch of left over turkey meat & gravy - chop some up into bite sized pieces ... mixes them into the gravey. Then, toast some bread in
    the oven until it is VERY lightly toasted. Put a slice on a plate and ladle
    some of the turkey meat and gravy on top of it ... gobble, gobble.

    If you have mashed potaotes left over too, on a baking pan, make little mounds about the diameter of a coffe cup. Bake them in the oven until the
    outsides are crispy ... put one or two on a plate and pour a ladle of the chopped turkey and gravy on top of each crispy mashed potatoe mound ...
    scarf away.

    One or all three of these tricks can get rid of your left over turkey fast and not waste any of it.

    Have fun.

    He, he. I wondered how you were making that soup without water. I am doing almost the same recipe except that I am cooking the carcass first, covered in the drippings and water, then will remove the bones and add the onion, carrots, and celery along with some parsley, thyme, garlic and other seasonings and cook some more.
