Using the Leftovers

This past week I cooked an 18 lb turkey and a half a ham.  We ate turkey and ham for 5 days and that is all we could take.  We love both things but after 5 days it was time for a change.  I made 2 ham and cheese braids, 2 turkey and cheese braids and froze those for later.  I canned 7 quarts of turkey broth, 5 pints of turkey pieces and 5 pints of ham pieces.  Turkey and ham all used up and nothing went to waste.


  1. Sounds like my kind of savings! Did you know the stores will cut a turkey in half for you? Even when they are frozen.

    1. I did not know that they would do that. If I find some turkey on sale I will have them do that. Thanks
