The Saturday Simmer: Soup, stew and chili recipes for leftover turkey

Leftover turkey pinto bean chili, from Kalyn's Kitchen.

By the time next weekend rolls around, we'll be knee deep in leftover turkey (and leftover everything else) from the Thanksgiving feast. For some people, leftovers are the best part of the meal! In our house, we reheat the T-day meal on the next day, but by the day after that, someone will have stripped the turkey carcass, and left a container of turkey meat waiting for creative repurposing. What's more inspiring -- and easier -- than chopping or shredding the turkey and magically transforming it into soup, stew or chili, like this leftover turkey and pinto bean white chili with lime and cilantro, from Kalyn's Kitchen?

And we're back, almost.

Dutch oven.

Thank you all for letting me know that you're still making soup while I've been on a little break.

For many of you, and for me, too, weekends seem to be the time you get out the soup pot. So, here's my plan.

Starting next month, every Saturday morning (just after midnight East Coast time), I'll share links to soups, stews or chili recipes I think you will enjoy. Those of you who liked Seven soups every Saturday will like the format, and you'll have the recipes in time to plan your weekend cooking. (Remember, you can still check those "seven soups" posts by using the recipe index in the right-hand column.)

Some weeks I might share just a few recipes, and some weeks more, but I promise to try hard to keep it interesting, and to present you with some new ideas to feed your inner "soupie." Each week's links will share a common theme, whether seasonal or focused on a specific ingredient. Please feel free to suggest themes or recipes you'd like to see: either leave a comment below, or write to me directly lydia AT ninecooks DOT com and share your ideas.

If this sounds like fun, and I know it will be fun, I'll see you in a few weeks. Happy August!

Soup lovers, I'd love to know...

Hi everyone! Hope you are enjoying your summer.

As I plan for September, I'd love to know which day of the week is most often your soup-making day?

Please leave your answer in the comments below, and I'll see you in September.

PS: I'm a Sunday soup gal.
