    twissis's Note:

    This recipe from the New Covent Garden Food Co new book "Soup for all Seasons" is a twist on traditional turkey leftovers. It stars your leftovers in a lightly creamed soup that I modified to be a bit more hearty than the original by increasing the amt of stuffing & turkey. It also features the stuffing as meatballs for another twist. I saw it in the IcelandAir magazine on the plane as we were flying home from the US a few dys ago & was impatient to share it w/you. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
