    Grandma and Grandad came for Thanksgiving dinner,years and years ago,I threw the boney ole' carcasses out to the dog... when I saw the disappointment in her eyes,it crushed me,and I learned my lesson.
    Now...I boil it down,and savor what is left.
    Thank-you for reminding me of the two people that will always stand tall in their boots,in my books.
    Kindest of Regards

    Don't think a holiday has ever gone by without making carcass soup. Now that I spend the "turkey holidays" at my daughter's and she does most of the cooking, I still get to bring home the carcass for my soup pot. I leave the noodles out..... because I live alone and this makes a LOT of soup, I vacuum seal most of it (once cooled) in single-serving portions. Then, when I reheat it at a later date, I add the noodles; that way they're not over-cooked.
