    My favorite part in any baking show is when a contestant says “Of course I know what [immensely complex recipe] is! I buy it at the store like a sensible person.”

    “You could have bought at the store!”

    Yes, but homemade tastes much better, hasn’t been overly processed and doesn’t have any (well, not nearly as many) preservatives and such!

    Of course there’s a turkey salad. Chop up the meat. Add in some finely diced celery and dried cranberries. Make a dressing out of mayo, lemon juice, a little bit of sugar. Pour the dressing over the chopped up stuff and let it marinate for awhile.

    Definitely there is turkey salad— with grapes, celery, and almonds, as I recall.

    There’s this ice cream place called Salt n Straw that does a whole Thanksgiving dinner series of flavors in November, including a flavor with fried, candied turkey skin. I humbly suggest Pucky come visit me so I can feed him some (and snuggle him!).

    John Anders used to write a column (quite often humorous) for The Dallas Morning News ages ago. He loved to tell his readers about his day-after-Thanksgiving sandwich—he layered turkey and ALL the traditional sides AND a slice of cranberry sauce between two slices of bread!

    To everything (tur-, tur-, turkey)

    Time for soup seasoning (tur-, tur-, turkey)

    And no salad for every cat, under heaven

    A time to be bold, a thyme to dice

    A time to rant, "counter"strike for meat

    A time to get your fill, a time to steal

    A time to laugh, and cake, indeed!

    In the spring, if there’s any frozen turkey left by then, my wife makes a “turkey loaf” that’s really yummy in warmer weather. Just dump chopped up bits of turkey into a loaf pan, then add chicken broth with a bit of gelatin added to it. Chill in the fridge till solid. Great with some sort of sauce over it.

    This year, I did a 22 pound turkey and took it to my father-in-law’s because, at 97, he just had his knee replaced for the second time (long story) and can’t do any stairs. We don’t have a ramp. Normally, I do turkey soup, but I just couldn’t deal with one more thing this year so left the carcass for my sister-in-law to deal with. It was still covered in juicy turkey and I imagine she tossed it. I promised hubs I’ll make one before Christmas, a small one and he can still have his turkey soup. There was 9 of us there though and not much turkey leftover. Not sure what that says about us…

    I don’t make turkey salad. However, I make salads with turkey in them. Eventually, we will finish all the leftovers in our house. Growing up, we were taught never to waste food. My parents learned it from their parents, who had to go through the great depression.

    The store can only wish it had soup as good as the stuff I make. I certainly don’t turn my nose up at the canned options, but the time spent making my own soup from scratch is time well spent.

    You absolutely can have a turkey salad, in the sense you just add some bits of turkey to your salad. Likewise for the ham. Both sound quite tasty to me…but then I’ve always been an enjoyer of a good salad, and I suppose all the greens that’d come with it would be a turn off for cats. :P

    I think the Woman is developing shades of the Nana, because I doubt she can see both Puck and Goldie. Or perhaps she just has good enough instincts to know if there’s one cat on the counter, there’s probably more. I confess I have no more turkey options to offer, but I am down for trying turkey cake.

    It makes me wonder how many people throw out the turkey carcass instead of bagging it and tossing it in the freezer. A mirepoix of vegetables, a turkey carcass and some water and the stock for a wonderful soup is born. Tasty, healthy, and so much better than anything you can buy from the store and the cost, pennies on the dollar and a little time.

    I was going to do a crockpot of split pea soup with turkey burger meatballs, but found that one of the residents is a Cincinnati Chili fan and this soup is very bean-heavy. The other just doesn’t like chili. I don’t like making a big pot of something just for me. It just doesn’t feel right. Nuts. Suggestions for what to do with a pound of turkey burger?

    " … and take your visual aids with you."

    I always boil down carcasses into soup, even Cornish game hen. Of course, one of the additives is always chicken broth, so it’s probably all a waste of time.

    You don’t need a recipe for turkey salad. Just turkey. And salad. :)

    My late loving wife used to make carcass soup, very good but it was a very rich soup. This time of the year was her favorite because of the Holidays and she loved making soups and stews. And at the time we had dogs and cats who always wanted the bits of “meats” and vegetables as she was cooking. But all of them are gone now too and I don’t really cook anything.

    I would try a turkey cake! Just make a turkey meatloaf and frost it with mashed potatoes or leftover stuffing. Serve with leftover gravy and cranberry sauce on the side.

    I don’t add beans, but sometimes the spoonful or two of left over corn and/or a potato that didn’t get chosen for mashed potatoes (or if I remembered to save the peels from one of those chosen potatoes). And maybe some left over green beans (not canned ones or ones that became green bean casserole). FWIW: I discard the veggies that were used to make the broth (which might have simmered for 3 to 4 hours). I make a round of “fresh” cooked veggies when I turn the broth into soup. :) The neatest thing about Turkey Soup is everyone has their own “recipe” or “family tradition”. :) All the Turkey Soups are the “best”!

    There is turkey salad, which is a meat salad Puck. It’s the same idea as chicken salad, but uses turkey in place of chicken. And there is using turkey in salads like chef’s salad.

    Thomios: Time to make leftover soup.

    Sue Chef: Is the soup leftover, or is it made from leftovers?

    Thomios: Both, actually. Will you help me with the broth?

    Sue Chef: Glad to. Can we add spice plural yet?

    Thomios: No. But we can work around that. Just add one spice at a time.

    Sue Chef: Do we have enough seasoning for the broth?

    Thomios: I think so. I heard giggling in the pantry this morning.

    Be careful with giving them meat that’s been cooked with garlic and onions!

    My dog’s stomach gets upset if he eats a piece of baked chicken from the grocery deli, or from the Peruvian grill near here. I have to assume they inject their chicken with garlic before grilling it, based on his unfortunate reaction. I’m sure not every animal is that sensitive (my first dog loved onions, and never had a bad effect) – but it never hurts to be careful.
