Cream of Turkey Soup with Wild Rice

January 28, 2011

Just a few more weeks of lovely winter soups for us, the residents of South Florida.  But this one is not only a great soup, but a great meal.  If you make turkey stock make something special just because it does deserve some extra love.  This would also be delicious with chicken.
