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?
