Trying to take advantage of some "free" time, we are removing the blue and dreary wallpaper from our kitchen so we can brighten up the room with happy, bright paint. (The paint we picked is called "Spiced Butternut", may have been paleo inspired, haha!) But anyone who owns a home, or has every done any sort of house renovations - NOTHING is easy. Taking down wallpaper seemed like such an easy task! Nope. 4 layers of wallpaper have been accumulated on the walls through the years. 4 LAYERS!!! It will be a huge sense of accomplishment when we are done! I can't wait to brighten up these kitchen walls. After all, we do spend a decent about of time in there...
So now into the recipe! In an effort to try and keep Joe warm in-between snow blowing, I thought turkey soup would be great. Its super easy and freezes well so it can be made in a big batch and kept for left overs.
- About 4.5 Cups of Turkey/Chicken Broth (You can use cans, but I used my homemade stuff!)
- 1-2 Carrots
- 1-2 Onions
- 1-2 Celery Stalks
- 2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped fine
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 2-3 pounds of cooked turkey or chicken
- Bring the broth to a boil, then turn down to keep a simmer
- While its coming to a boil, cut up all veggies and throw them into the pot
- You can also be cooking the meat if its not from leftovers. (I baked some chicken because I didn't have any)
- Once the carrots and onions are soft, throw in the meat and simmer for a little longer.
- Serve and enjoy!!
