Obvi, I’m already thinking about YOU and your turkey leftovers. You are SO very welcome!

HALLO HALLO! How are you? What are you doing? Having a great Sunday, I hope! I’m skipping Church – the snow is above my knees and my driveway is waiting for its owner to clean it up. Yes, that would be me, but The Breakfast Club is on TV and I ain’t movin’.

So I know we have this thing in like, three, four days… the day where we eat a ton of food and then we end up in a food coma for a week, but the thing is? I can’t stop thinking about the leftovers!

I know you’re busy making lists and running to the grocery store and figuring out just where to store that giant Butterball… and maybe doing things like making an apple pie, a pumpkin pie, and a pecan pie for your family, or maybe just for yourself! – BUT I’m confident that you are also thinking about those turkey leftovers and need all the help you can get.

I mean, maybe you aren’t thinking about that, but we sort of have this mutual relationship of sorts and because of that, I don’t know, I feel like we get each other? You and I. It’s like ESP for food.

NO? It’s just me!? I’m the only one thinking about leftovers?? meh.

Regardless, in due time, I know you will thank me. Like, on Friday. Just watch.
Sidenote: Don’t you hate it/love it when people say irregardless? I cringe. And laugh.

Oh and guess what? I’m such a hypocrite. I generally do not like canned cream style corn. Nope siree bob. But, it makes a lot of sense here, in this corn chowder recipe. It makes sense in the way that I don’t want you to spend too much time in the kitchen on Friday because you’ll be too busy nursing that food hangover, you know? Therefore, to save us all some time, we’re going to reach for the creamy corn.

Also? This Turkey Corn Chowder is basically a dump and cook soup. As in, you just dump it all in the pot and let it go to town for around 30 minutes. Easy, right? Told you! A thick and hearty chowder that comes together in a matter of minutes? HECK YEAH!

One other awesome factor? You don’t have to make it with just turkey! You can also use some leftover chicken, baked ham, shrimp! Whatever floats that soup boat.

If this isn’t your thing, I highly suggest some Turkey Tetrazzini with Fetuccine or this Leftover Turkey Frittata. Which can also be breakfast. Or lunch. Or everything because it’s SO GOOD!

Uh, yeah. Do it.

ENJOY!

    I can’t believe I made a homemade soup that taste really freaking good. Of course I made slight changes … used celery salt instead of just salt… added way more pepper and I used McCormick’s Montreal Steak seasoning (bc I use it in everything) Thank our thank you for putting this together and making it so easy… even my picky 8 year old liked it!!! #bonus

  2. I’m thinking about the leftovers too. I picked up our turkey tonight (it’s just my husband and I and 3 teenagers this year) and my husband was wondering why I got as big of a bird as I did. It’s all about the leftovers! And turkey stock! I’ve got it all planned out. LOL Anyway, your soup looks delicious…we might be using some of our leftovers up making it!

  3. First – have to tell you it is 80 last two days and 78 until Thursday. Phoenix, Az. We’ve had 11 days of 80 from beginning of November..

    Now down to business…I am definately doing the carrots forThanksgiving. If I don’t quit reading your blog I’ll never get my menu
    finished.
    Have a wonderful family Thanksgiving…
