Thoughts, and a recipe

I'm applying for two jobs that I found first thing in the morning. I am extremely qualified for both, so cross your fingers for me!

Put a small dent into my to do list today...almost done unpacking and sorting, got some of my paintings out of the way, and on my way to Craigslist now. I also just recorded my Happy New Year VLOG, and will post it next time.

This recipe is a little late, but worth going out and buying turkey for it...I made it the day after Thanksgiving in 07, and will make it again as soon as I can.

Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

1 cup grated carrots
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 14 oz cans chicken broth
1 12 oz can low fat evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups cooked wild rice (you can use a combo of wild with brown or long grain, it's all good)
1 to 1 1/2 cup(s) diced cooked turkey

Melt butter in 3-4 qt saucepan over medium heat and add carrots, mushrooms, celery, and onion; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until veggies are tender.

Stir in flour, and gradually add broth and milk, whisking until blended. Bring to a boil, then stir in rice and turkey. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5-10 minutes.

Serves 4 to 6 people. A 1 1/4 cup serving is 240 calories.

Hi Kelli! Good luck with the job hunt! And thanks for the recipe. I tried the microwave potato au gratin you posted and it was very good!
