Turkey Pot Pie

What to do with the turkey after Christmas dinner, here it finds it way into a pot. Cover with water, add some carrots,celery, basil, onion, garlic and let it boil away. Then when the meat is falling off the bones turn it off and let it cool a bit, then strain it , letting all that good broth run into one pot the bones and meat into a bowl.

Then let the meat cool until it cool enough to handle with your hand, sort the meat from the bones add the meat to the broth, add more carrots, potatoes cook until tender, add any leftover veggies from the fridge, and thicken with flour.

Here is were we cheat using pre made pie crusts for the bottom and making the top crust from any cookbook. Fill the crust with the pot pie filling and top with homemade crust bake at 350 until the crust is brown.

This of course makes way more filling then needed at any one meal, so the rest finds it way to the frezzer to later be made into more pot pie later in the month.
