Well no, I did that spatchcock thing and roasted the Turkey, then made stock with the carcass.
But I did have two necks and two carcass, Plus the one Turkey was very large.

The stock was great.
Made Turkey soup and Turkey and dumplings.

Making stock is the best.
Soup bases are hard to find at least a good one that is.

The Better than bouillon brand is not better than bouillon, man it's all salt.
Used to get superior brand but can't because that's only for restaurants.

Iron skillet nice.
Looks good.

I used Iron skillets at my restaurant for many years, they did an article in the paper about our restaurant and mentioned the Iron skillets, well I got people wanting to give and or sell me the Iron skillets they had.

Was able to buy some really big Iron skillets from Woolworth's when they went out of Biz here in town many years ago.

A well seasoned iron skillet is the original nonstick cookware. I have a skillet that was my grandma's and has been well seasoned with love and over 75 years of cooking. This simple pan is a prized possession.

You can say That again, some of our Iron skillets have been used at our restaurant to this day since 1942.

Don't count the one Mittie dropped off the stove.
We cooked hash browns in them fried Chicken and liver, Swiss steak, Salmon patties and more.

Just spray them out and wipe to keep the oils in them.
When buying a Iron Skillet be sure to ring them first.
Do this by hitting the skillet with something metal while holding by the handle there should be a clear ring tone if there is not it may have a crack you can't even see starting.

This may be where the term "ring true" came from....

ring true
"Fig. to sound or seem true or likely. (From testing the quality of metal or glass by striking it and evaluating the sound made.) The student's excuse for being late doesn't ring true. Do you think that Mary's explanation for her absence rang true?"

Special request tonight for lettuce wraps. I guess they are OK but why would you wrap something in lettuce when you have tortillas in the fridge?

I wasn't going to waste good leftover meat and veggies by wrapping it in lettuce again So I wrapped it in wonton wrappers and made Wonton Soup

I have a midsize one with the ridges on the inside bottom. I use it for Ribeye’s when it’s too cold out to fire up the Weber , Also works for a good sized “Dutch Baby”.
Cheers
Btw, mine rings true even after several drops.

"Btw, mine rings true even after several drops."

Lots of the stuff in the restaurant was really old, it opened in 1942 and they say some of the stuff they got in 42 was used.

Sooo when stuff dropped on the floor most of the time the item dropped would blow up, it was so ready to end it's life of work.

Water glasses would explode when dropped.

Good day to make cookies, my husband loves ginger cookies so I made some today. I know not everyone likes these cookies but they go perfectly with vanilla ice cream. I like to chop them up and pour on top of the ice cream with a little cinnamon on top for extra flavor.

Is that molasses? I love molasses in my cookies!

I was going through the liquor cabinet and saw the Angostura Bitters. I thought "I wonder if you can cook with this?" So I found a recipe for squash soup with Angostura. 2 tablespoons in a crock pot full of soup, it was subtle but detectable and good. Kabocha and butternut squashes, garnished with crème fraîche and a little more Angostura.
