So yesterday the plan was for me to cut the meat off the turkey carcass and freeze it, make turkey broth, clean the oven and make turkey pot pies. The first two tasks I accomplished. I did not want to use the Flex Clean on the oven as last time I used it, it fried the electronics. Plus I was worried that I would create a fireball. So Tom braved the storm and purchased oven cleaner but some ingredients for the pies. I worked on cleaning the oven while he got a fire going in the hot tub. I had to use my N95 mask and rubber gloves and I cleaned the oven. But when I went to warm it smoke came billowing out. It was late enough I scratched the idea of pies and went looking for a stovetop leftover turkey recipe which was dissimilar from pie filling. I let the oven cool and recleaned it. This time when I warmed it only a small amount of smoke came out. This persisted for 1/2 hour then stopped. By now the hot tub was ready so we hopped in. I was hoping for snowflakes in the hot tub but it stopped snowing briefly then. But I thought our rubber duck looked picturesque.
Then I made the Southwest Turkey Soup recipe I had found. And it was so good!
I had wanted to make a predinner cocktail from my new cocktail book but ran out of time. So I made a postdinner one.
It was a nice dessert and paired well with Glow. So today the plan is to make turkey pies. Wish me luck.
Donna, I’m sorry you had such a difficult time with your oven! But. It’s good you could enjoy your hot tub. I got a chuckle out of your rubber duck!
I want to check out that soup recipe, since it looks so yummy.
Thanks Jeanne. It was a struggle but we finally have a functional oven and large amount of cooked turkey meat. The hot tub has been fun in the snow. I am not sure the rubber duck would agree though. You definitely should try that soup. It is delicious and easy.
