Turkey Soup!

My mom and I made the annual turkey soup today. First we boil the turkey bones, aka carcass. Then the rest is a big family secret! It basically involves turkey, alphabet noodles, tons of veggies, baked beans, potatoes (white and sweet) and one rutabaga and one parsnip! I have no idea how the last two things affect the huge pot of soup, but my Grandmom always put them in, so we do too! Then the secret part is to add stuffing and coleslaw and other Thanksgiving leftovers! It really winds up being more of a stew than a soup, but it is one of my favorite things to eat! I cannot wait to make this with my daughter some day!
