Turkey Soup Recipe?

I'm googling, but P&E ladies have awesome recipes. I don't feel good today and I want to make some turkey soup from scratch with lots of veggies and cook it slow all day. Any recipes you want to share? :D Thanks!

    Grandma's Chicken (Or Turkey) Noodle Soup:Boil 1 chicken breast, drumstick, and thigh, along w/ 1/2 C celery, 1/2 C carrots, and 1/2 C onions until tender. Debone and chop chicken.Add the above plus 1 cup egg noodles to Bear Creek or Wyler's Chicken noodle soup mix (prepared per package directions. Add some of all of the water from the boiled chicken to obtain consistency you desire. Season with black pepper to taste.This one looks good too:http://tinyurl.com/ykaq5jj[Open in new window]

    I have no idea what the recipe is, but my dad used to make turkey soup after Thanksgiving with the leftovers. We wouldn't even have time to have leftover sandwiches or time to get sick of the turkey, since he would throw it in the stock pot and boil it the next day! I really think that was the key - just using the turkey and letting it cook slow. I know he put onions, celery and carrots in it. Salt and pepper. And usually rice, though sometimes noodles. Not sure what else.

    I don't ever use a recipe for most soups, but I would use a couple of chopped onions, a stalk of celery or 2, some chopped carrots. Saute/sweat that in some butter over medium to med-low heat until the onions are translucent. Add some chopped garlic (maybe a clove or so) and saute. Add a bit of white wine or cognac, then some chicken broth, your turkey, a bay leaf or 2, a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme, a couple of sprigs of fresh sage, and a couple of sprigs of fresh parsley. If you've got some cheesecloth, put the fresh herbs in that along with a few whole black peppercorns. Simmer that until the turkey is cooked through, then remove it and take the meat off the bone. Reserve it and put the bone back in the soup pot. About 25 minutes before serving, add some uncooked rice and extra broth of necessary. Or throw in some egg noodles about 10 minutes before the end of cooking instead of the rice. Add the meat back in to rewarm.

    These are all really awesome ideas. I just decided to run to the store and get a bunch of veggies and wing it and it sounds like I'm doing all of the above. :) I got some onions, carrots, celery, fresh parsley, a rotisserie chicken from the Publix deli (I pulled all the skin off of it and threw it in the stock pot) and some peas and other stuff. It smells so good already... mmmm... :)
