Creamy Turkey and Rice Soup

I think I look forward to turkey leftovers more than the big bird itself on Thanksgiving day. Although you can't beat a turkey sandwich with mayonnaise, salt, and pepper this soup may be my new favorite way to use up turkey leftovers. Not only is it incredibly delicious but it's healthy and filling as well. My husband, who loves soup and eats it often, declared this as one of his favorites.
