Turkey Noodle Soup


We are in between the Canadian and the American Thanksgiving and so it seemed like a good time to make Turkey Soup. 

We never throw out turkey or chicken bones, these go into a soup pot this celery, onions, carrots and enough water to cover everything.  This then sits on the back of the stove simmer for between 8 to 12 hours.  Then drain the turkey broth.  

The amounts of vegetables vary dependent on what is in the fridge. 

If we are not making soup the broth is poured into quart jars and frozen.

When you go to use the broth you adjust the favour.

Ingredients:
  • 1-quart turkey broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 large onion quartered
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 3 cups of cooked turkey cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 cups slices mushrooms
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 4 cups cooked pasta




Directions:
  1. In a soup pot bring to a slow simmer the turkey broth, to this add the garlic, bay leaves and onion and simmer for 3 hours. 
  2. Remove the garlic, onions and bay leaves
  3. To the broth add turkey, mushrooms, peas and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add cooked paste, continue to boil for 2 minutes and serve.

Learn to Do Good


When we do good out of fear of personal punishment or a desire for personal reward are we leaving any room for the spirit of the living Christ to be glorified in us?

When we meet Christ in our daily prayers, in the person of the homeless woman sitting on the sidewalk or in the children of your church community do we rival his gift of love? 

Do we do good to see justice done or do we do good because it is good for us?

There is a difference.

A difference that Zacchaeus understood in that moment of elimination, in the presence of Christ’s love for him.

This week watch your children and grandchildren do good because it is the just and right thing to do.  Like Zacchaeus born anew in Christ’s love, our children hold no status, no power they know only our love for them and from this love their good deeds flow. 

We are also like Zacchaeus prior to his climbing that tree we hold power and status it is our motives for doing good that has come into question.

Like our children and Zacchaeus, do our good deeds flow from the love our Heavenly Father for us?

 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus maybe glorified in you, and you in him. 2 Thessalonians 1:12
