Leftover Turkey Soup.

I made turkey soup with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Yum Soup!

I didn't follow an exact recipe but it went a little something like this.

Boil the turkey carcass (sounds gross... carcass) in a big pot of water for about 30-45 mins.
Remove from water, separate the meat from the bones, return the meat to the pot of water/stock.
Chop up some onion, carrot and celery. Sweat them in a separate pan with some EVOO for about 7 mins.
Add the veggies to the water and turkey along with 1 1/2 cups dry pearl barley.
Season to taste and simmer for 30-45 mins.
I seasoned with:
Garlic Powder
Bay Leaf

I hope I'm not forgetting anything.
