Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup Mix

I love crafting up little treats.  Many years ago when my Little Devil was really little, I was in charge of Teacher's Appreciation at her school.  That meant I got to come up with all of the little presents and meals for the teachers.  I loved it.  Though my budget was small, and sometimes it was challenging, I really enjoyed making little gifts for them to show how much they meant to our kids.  For their Thanksgiving treat one year, each teacher got a little bag of Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup Mix in their mailbox.  All the bouillon, herbs and noodles are included to make a yummy soup.  Just add turkey, water and a few veggies and you've got a great Post-Turkey Day meal.  These are so simple your kids can even whip them up.  A perfect little gift for your guests, and definitely and terrific little hostess gift if you're eating away from home.

Save a little turkey for the soup!

Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup Mix

1 cup uncooked fine egg noodles
1 1/2 tablespoons chicken flavored bouillon
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried whole thyme
1/8 teaspoon celery seed
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 bay leaf

Combine these ingredients and place in a jar or bag.

Attach these instructions to the jar:

Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup

1 package leftover turkey noodle soup mix
8 cups water
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 cups cooked diced turkey

Combine soup mix and water in a large pot.  Add the carrots, celery and onion, and bring to a boil.  Cover the soup and reduce heat to a simmer.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  Discard bay leaf.  Stir in turkey and simmer an additional 5 minutes.  This is a great way to use up leftover turkey!

I hope each and everyone of you has a safe and happy holiday season.  Eat lots of food, be grateful for what you have and enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving.
