The Day After Today

Like me, most of you are about to eat the feast of the month – Thanksgiving dinner.

Turkey, dressing, macaroni and cheese, cranberry sauce, cornbread, collard greens, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, pound cake…….whew, let me stop now, I am making myself hungry ūüôā and we aren’t eating til 6p.

Anywho…….some people have food left over, we don’t but I hear it happens. In any case, there are only so many turkey sandwiches you can eat. So what else can you do? Well, the team over at Amana shared these recipes, and now I am sharing them with you.

about 6 minutes. Season as you go. Add the picked turkey and the flour and stir until
incorporated. Add the turkey stock stirring while you pour it in. Bring to a simmer, adjust the

Cook your favorite noodle separately until tender. Don’t mix the noodle into the soup or they
will get mushy. Pour the turkey soup over the noodles in your bowl.
