    1. Fundamentally this is a great soup!

      My carcass was from a 14lb Turkey. Most of the major parts were eaten, but there was still a considerable amount of meat on the bone.

      Per other comments,

      added two capfuls of Apple Cider Vinegar during the boiling phase 50% Chicken stock to water Primary ingredients:

      Double carrots Double celery Double barley Add 4-8 cloves of garlic Skipped tomatoes (might reconsider) Seasoning:

      Double Worcestersshire Double to triple salt and pepper (to taste) Double parsley Double Basil Double to triple paprika Double to triple poultry seasoning. Double thyme Add red pepper Add a couple good squirts of Sriracha sauce And I found myself adding a fair amount more water, to handle the additional barley and also to make the soup a bit thinner. Particularly as the water evaporates over the course of the day.

      I can attest that these modifications result in a properly hearty soup!

      Oh, I also learned how to properly dice an onion today:

    1. Donald Trump said he was most thankful for himself on Thanksgiving as he spent the holiday weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

      These articles read like an Onion article or a SNL newscast story...

    1. religious occasions, intended to invoke God’s help to cope with hardships, or to offer God thanks for positive developments.

      thanksgiving was more of a religious experience; one where the relationship between God and the people was reflected upon and strengthened.

    2. But it was not until the 19th century that it became enshrined as the progenitor of the modern event.

      interesting and important point: we often think thanksgiving was a concrete holiday in 1692, but Paul argues it was spearheaded more by Lincoln

    1. Thanksgiving, was born and grew out of hard times. The first Thanksgiving took place after nearly half the pilgrims died from a rough winter and year. It became a national holiday in 1863 in the middle of the Civil War and was moved to its current date in the 1930s following the Depression. Why? Well, when times are good, people take prosperity for granted and begin to believe that they are invulnerable. In times of uncertainty, though, people realize how powerless they are to control their own destiny. If you begin to see that everything you have, everything you have counted on, may be taken away, it becomes much harder to take it for granted.
