I am such a cooking geek

I'm already prepping for Thanksgiving. For dinner tonight I roasted 6 turkey legs (they came 3 per package, and I wasn't sure how much meat the kids would eat, so I got 2. Pretty cheap too, for turkey parts).  I scraped the drippings in the roasting pan into a container and stuck it in the fridge so I can make gravy Thanksgiving afternoon. The kids and I ate about 2 legs. I deboned the other 4 legs and roasted all the leg bones and various leftover non-meat bits in the oven for about 45 minutes. Right now they are sitting in my smallest stockpot and I'm making turkey stock for soup and gravy.

Am I a geek or what?

I always make stock with leftover meat scraps but I never thought of roasting them first. That sounds really, really good!

It smells really, really good too. Roasting the bones is one of those restaurant tricks I picked up by reading...something or other. =)

Works really well with beef bones too. I made beef stock over the summer with the bones left from a prime rib roast...the leftover meat bits fell off the bone and tasted really, really good =)
