Christmas Leftovers

Very happy walking on Boxing Day with Turkey and Ham Sandwiches (using up the Spiced Ham ) just us and the sheep again ……

Boxing Day Sandwiches

Boxing Day WalkingMmmm I love Welsh Bogs

But lots of Turkey also means plenty of Turkey Soup , either Laksa which is zingy and spicey or a more Traditional Turkey and Vegetable soup , which make me feel all wholesome

Leftover Turkey Soup

Turkey Soup

Very similar to the Soup for the Wettest Walk in the World but when you have a good thing why mess with it

  1. Add to leoftover turkey roughly chopuped vegetables onions , carrots , leeks , potatoes , garlic , place in pan with your choice of herbs , or you could throw in the stuffing . You could also you the leftover vegetables from Christmas Day
  2. Season with plenty of salt and pepper
  3. Pour over boiling water and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. The soup will be ready but could be even better if you leave it with the lid on for a while to steep.
