Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

Have you found ways to use up your Thanksgiving Turkey yet?  I had about 2 cups in my fridge, so I decided to make some Turkey & Wild Rice Soup tonight.  Avery proclaimed it to be the BEST SOUP EVAH.    {She has a cute accent!}  We all thought it was really flavorful and good. The original recipe for this soup, can be found in the December/January 2013 Taste of Home Magazine, page 85.
