No idea...I suspect I'm going to try to clean out the fridge to day. I have a huge casserole filled with mac 'n cheese with cheeses melted on top that we can't chew, trying to think of a way to salvage that.

When do you want me to publish your cookbook? I almost have enough of your recipes and ideas to do so!

Looks good. How did you thicken? Did you start with a rouxe? Bacon grease and flour? Do you cook the rice right in the soup or add the cooked rice to the soup.

Fusilli with tomato sauce and meatballs. The hubster made supper. He made the tomato sauce a few days ago and the meatballs a week ago. I am lucky to have a husband who can cook.

Thank you RL!! I used the bacon grease and flour to make a roux then added the turkey gravy & 1/2 & 1/2. Then added it to the soup with a bit more 1/2 & 1/2 till it looked right.

I brought the chicken cooking stock and homemade turkey stock to a boil then added the rice, lowered to a simmer and cooked for 20 minutes. Then I added the other ingredients and simmered till rice was tender.
