It is 100* outside, so what do I do? Make soup.
Crazy I know but just hear me out. So we had our deep freezer stop working and not know it til after almost 3 days. In 100* weather. The freezer is outside. Needless to say, we lost a lot of food. I didn't know what to do with all the meat and when I asked my mom for advice she said, "Get cooking." In 100* weather. I'm so grateful for central air conditioning.
So... I happen to have some turkey on hand. You could make this with chicken but it is so much better with turkey. I don't know why. You may want to dress up the soup a bit too, add some onion or carrots and celery. DON'T. It will not taste right. Believe me, I've tried.
Let's get going. First you want to put about 4-5 cups of cooked turkey in your pot. It will get eaten up. I make this for 6 of us. Add at least 10 cups of water. I think I used 12. Then I added 6 chicken bouillon cubes. Bring this all to a boil.
As you add them to your soup, you want to make sure that they are floured well. This not only keeps them from sticking together but it is what helps your soup thicken up.
