Turkey Pot Pie Soup

The last hurrah for the
Christmas Turkey!!
The bones were frozen and
today was the day for making

I added enough water to almost cover the bones,
seasoned with salt and pepper,
threw in a Bay leaf and simmered
for approx. 1 hour.

With slotted spoon scoop out the bones
and sieve the broth into a bowl.
Pick off any meat from the bones to add to 
the soup.

In a large pot,
brown some butter and add 
a diced onion, 
a Cup each of diced carrots and celery.
I also added some mushrooms

Cook and stir till onion is transparent.
Add 5-6 diced potatoes and 6 to 8 Cups of broth
Simmer till vegetables are tender.
Check for seasoning and add a dash or two of Cinnamon.

While soup is simmering make
the pot pie noodles:
1 Cup flour plus 1 tsp. salt mixed together
1 Large Egg whisked with 
1/2 egg shell full of water (approx. 2 Tbsp.)
Make a well in middle of flour and
add egg mixture - stir together until
you have a stiff dough.
Roll out the dough as thin as possible and 
cut into 1" squares.

Drop noodles into boiling chicken soup.
Cook for 10-15 minutes or until noodles are tender.

Enjoy .... hopefully there will be left-overs
because this soup tastes even better the 
next day!!

Till next time ...... watching Hockey Night in Canada?!


  1. So glad those hockey games are finally happening! That soup is calling to me... It looks delicious!

  2. Yummo. I don't know why I can't make noodles, but I can't. They are so delicious, too. I just stick with dumplings. Well now, you just wouldn't be Canadian without being a hockey lover!

  3. I'm impressed! I think homemade noodles in that soup would be unbeatable.
    Having said, that ... I don't make my own noodles. Not yet.

  4. Yummy Rosella! that just looks so good. Our hockey night in Canada was not a great game...but hey, the season is only beginning..right?

  5. Your soup....oh so delish looking!! Those noodles must have been so good. I love hockey.....we are not off to a great start but I'll keep cheering them on.


Summer in Full Swing!

It's official! Summer has arrived in SW Ontario. It has been sweltering hot, the Spring flowers have bloomed and are long gone. ...
