    It seemed like RI sold out to Sysco to me. Seems disparate.

    How in the world did Soup to Nuts pass any health inspection? Ever?

  6. Jane says:

    I agree with all regarding the filth in the kitchen. I felt like I was watching an episode of Hoarders. I am assuming that being a Health Inspector is a paying job. Do they answer to anyone? And regarding the owner. Does she have any pride at all? Unless she has a genuine problem with her eyesight she has no excuse for the condition of her restaurant. Outdated decor is excusable. Outright filth is not. My condolences to anyone who has had the misfortunate to step foot in that lame excuse for an eatery.

      go see your local butcher and get some turkey bones he will have heaps roast them off and make a stock then reduce to a jus

      Last year I had the same issue. I saw a show on the cooking channel that gave me the idea to go to the grocery and just buy turkey wings, roast them off and use that to make your gravy. You can make it ahead of time and "tweek" it as needed. It came out really delicious!

      Run to the store and pick up a package of neck, wing and back bones…along with a large onion, 4 large carrots, 4 stalks of celery w/ leaves plus a bunch of thyme, 3 toes of garlic and a few bay leaves. Now…run home and grab a very large stock pot filled with a gallon of water. Bring to a boil; add turkey parts plus 2 tea spoons salt, reduce to simmer. Skim the gunk off the top then add 1 table spoon peppercorns. Cover and cook for 2 hours. While the bones are simmering rough chop all the veggies and herbs…add them AFTER the first 2 hours to avoid over cooking the veggies. Continue to simmer, with a tilted lid, for 45 min. to 1 hour. Test for salt to taste. Remove from heat, cool and strain using a heavy colander, smash all the juices out of the veggies. Now…fine strain the broth using cheese cloth or other fine sieve. Store over night in the fridge, skim off the top fat the following day. This broth is thick, rich, and makes a great substitute for drippings. It also freezes great. (idea!)…For the smoked turkey gravy try a drop or two of liquid smoke.

    I just love the Saigon Sub so much! I'm a big Bahn Mi sandwich fan in the first place, Guy's is a great take on that. I just sub out any of the items with gluten (soy sauce, the bun), and I'm in Sandwich Heaven !

    • Justin says:

      A Small turkey will feed three, if you want even smaller go with Chicken or even game hens, the cost will be a bit higher with that but it still works well, Mashed potatoes are a standard but mashed sweet potatoes is a great thanksgiving mix up, Ham can be saved for a time in the freezer and pie is a great desert, just some idea's

    • Tracy Joyner says:

      Turkey and noodles. Use homemade noodles or "Reames" egg noodles (in freezer section) they freeze and reheat well without sacrificing any flavor.

    • jeri says:

      Go for a small turkey. Leftovers are great for sandwiches, both hot and cold.
