    Since Kwanfan is asking about cooking a turkey, I think it's time for a recipes thread.

    Here's an easy turkey soup using the leftover carcass:

    1 turkey carcass
    2 carrots, diced
    1 onion, chopped
    2 celery stalks, chopped
    1 cup canned tomatoes
    2 tbs. minced fresh parsley
    1 bay leaf
    1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
    1/8 tsp. cloves
    salt to taste
    ground black pepper to taste

    chicken or turkey broth or stock to cover

    1 cup chopped cooked turkey

    Break turkey carcass into sections and place in large pan. Add vegetables, herbs, seasonings and broth to cover. Bring to boil, simmer covered for 2 hours. Cool slightly and skim the surface of the liquid. Add turkey meat, cook over gentle heat for 20 minutes. Serve hot with crusty bread.
