Requires more steps than when making a sandwich, but can be fun. Essentially, making a leftover turkey stew needs the bones and skins of the turkey to make stock. Meat must first be stripped from the bones and can be used for sandwiches or made part of the stew. Include carrots, celery, potatoes, and any other veggies to your liking and you'll have a great few days of delicious, hearty cold weather stew.
