Working my way through leftovers

I'm going to make that soup today. Srsly.

Aside from the turkey soup I'm going to make today, we've had turkey sandwiches, turkey quesadillas, and some turkey rice casserole thing I made with rice cooked in turkey broth, a can of cream of mushroom soup, and lots of freshly grated parmesan.

I think I'm going to make a turkey pot pie, too, but I can't decide if I want to try to make my own pie crusts or just go buy a roll of dough from HEB. I don't think I have a rolling pin, but I'm pretty sure I can do the rest of it.

I read a neat trick online for making your own flakey crusts, too. They suggested using a cheese grater to grate the butter in, that way you get the butter in very small peices without creaming it into the flour. Rolling pin aside, I have butter, flour, and salt, so I have everything I'd need to make my own. I just don't have the pin.. or a two liter bottle of coke.. or anything like that. I guess I could take a hairspray can and wrap it in saran wrap?

Anyway.. a freind suggested the turkey pot pie, and it seemed to be a great way to get rid of a bunch of the dark meat that Matt won't normally pick out and eat, as well as the leftover gravy, and the leftover celery from the stuffing. I'm going to take half the leftover celery and use it in soup, with some carrots I bought. I can use the other half and the rest of the carrots for pot pie, and it'll be great. I have some potatoes, too! The soup and the pot pie will have the same ingredients, but a different consistancy! Sounds great!

In other news.. I need to renew the paper-wings.org domain again. I usually renew it for two years at a time, but everytime I think about renewing it.. Ugh. Maybe I'm just not that SRS BSNS cosplayer anymore, but yeah XP


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
