Crock Pot Turkey Vegetable Soup with Barley

      

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 64)

We cooked a 17 pound turkey on Thanksgiving for FIVE people, which means we’ve been eating turkey A LOT ever since.

It’s a good thing we like turkey.

I’m finally in the homestretch of using it up.

The carcass is being used to make a crock pot full of turkey stock.

Tonight we will have sliced turkey with gravy and the slow cooker green bean casserole I decided not to make on Thanksgiving that’s cooking away on the counter now.

And I’ve got a yummy sounding casserole planned for tomorrow.
