What Happened to the Turkey?

Sunday, November 25, 2012

I went out yesterday and bought items for a turkey pot pie since I figured we'd be stuck with lots of turkey after Thanksgiving, but I'm not sure if I will have any or if I do, it will be very little.

That is definitely a first with an almost 13 pound turkey! emoticon

I went by Aldi's to get some milk and found 2 deep dish Anchor Hocking pie dishes for $5 total, so grabbed those as I plan to make apple pie with the marked down apple slices I got from Lowe's recently (was going to make turkey pot pie in them, LOL).

If I have time, I might get adventurous and make my own pie crusts as I don't think I've ever done that either. I guess I want this upcoming year to be a year of firsts with my cooking and want to take the time to make things from scratch when I can (well at least around the holidays too).

    I wish I could say that I boiled the carcass, but I didn't. emoticon I was busy doing other things and my husband is the one who deboned it (while I was out shopping, LOL). I will admit that I wouldn't have thought of doing that though even had I been here.

So how long do you boil it?

    Pie crust is not hard to make. It just makes a huge mess. emoticon I should know. After shopping all day yesterday, the hubby practically begged me to make him apple pie and I did...only because I felt kinda guilty about getting a new phone. emoticon

Also, did you boil the carcass and get all the extra meat? This sometimes yields another 2 cups and it makes great stock. I used to do this before I kinda migrated away from meat.

Enjoy your day!
