Thanksgiving, The Day After: Leftovers! in Cooking Posted December 1, 2010 I've been on my own for the past few days with a fridge full of turkey but no sides. So I've been keeping it simple. I got to keep the turkey carcass since I hosted and I made the turkey (in fact, I had to fight off my dad who wanted to bring it home to make congee!), so threw that into a pot and made stock with it. For meals, I've been heating up some of that stock and cooking rice noodles and chopped greens with diced turkey meat thrown in at the end for a comfortingly simple noodle soup.Turkey gumbo or jambalaya sounds like an incredible idea! Maybe I'll make that with the remains of my turkey stock.
