Leftover Turkey Stew

This delicious warming stew, keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days, or will freeze so you can get it out for a quick dinner after work, with the family. Using left over Christmas dinner ingredients makes it a really frugal dish too, which is perfect for saving a few pennies. I love turkey stew over the Christmas break, and on into the dark winter months. Full of goodness, and really tasty, it makes everything feel great again, and gets rid of any hangover!
