Zhizara, your post reminded me that I need to pick up some turkey necks at the market for Thanksgiving - it sure does make for some wonderful gravy.

We had asperagus soup and a dynamite lasagna with homemade yeast rolls. Won't be doing much cooking for the next two weeks. It will be fast food until the weekend.

I'm glad I reminded you Cheryl. I'm hoping to inspire people to use this wonderful stuff.

Turkey necks make the most incredible broth/stock. It doesn't really taste particularly like turkey, it has it's own bold flavor. I make my stock with nothing but water. I keep back 2 cups of broth and add two packets of gravy mix to that for the turkey neck stew. The meat from the neck is always really tender and makes a really yummy stew. The rest of the broth is stored in the freezer and makes an incredible liquid for making rice. Bold flavor.

I'm lucky that I have turkey necks easily available here in New Orleans.

We made the 45 minute trip to Costco. So dinner was sampler gummy vitamins, snack mix with the yummy pumpernickel things, a couple of sausages, and a couple bites of the turkey cheese melt sandwich that goes for $3.99 at the food court. Oh, and a Lindor Truffle and 5 Kirkland brand Ancient Grains crackers. Which are really good, BTW.

I'm stuffed. If DH wants anything else, he can help himself to the leftover potato soup.

I'm making burgers. It's been a while since we've had them. I picked up some macaroni salad and some redskin potato salad to go with them. I'll fry up some bacon strips to fancy up the burgers.

I love the little goodie offerings at Costco, can make a meal of those. The closest one to me is about an hour and a half so I don't get there often. I love the Kirkland Ancient Grains crackers, too!

Same with Trader Joe's, they always have samples so it helps to know what to buy. Again though, about an hour and a half away. Aaargh...lol

Yes, they do, and thanks for your tips. I also usually try to have pork necks on hand in the freezer for bean soups....necks are awesome, they have so much flavor and the meat is so tender.
