Hey Pie, speaking of using things up from the challenge, I found about two cups of turkey stock in the freezer, yep sitting right next to a turkey, hope it's the last. Not enough for two soup servings when all is said and done, but I supplemented it with my homemade vegetable and chicken stocks plus used up my roasted chicken from the night before. I cooked the pasta and carrots together in the broth until both were done then added the chicken, a little tomato finishing with the lemon and zest, parsley and cheese, pepper to taste. Very good bowl of soup.
This was very nice with the ciabatta that I made.
