I was looking for a good base recipe that I could customize to what crazy leftovers we had from last night's Thanksgiving Feast & this was THE place to start. I had 1/2 box of pre made pie crust in the fridge,so I didn't have to mess with a recipe for crust & just did a latice on top. I used 1 carrot & 1 parsnip & then threw in a handful of green beans & mushrooms & a shallot along with the chopped onion just because I wasn't sure what else to do with them. I threw in 1/2 a white sweet potato. All the other measurements, liquid, ratios, spices etc remained the same. I did have some water that I had boiled my turkey parts in & threw that in there along with the bouillon. I have no imagination when it comes to cooking "off the cuff"...I just wanted to use what I had. All the measurements were right on. I think this was pretty Fool Proof which makes it 5 stars in my house.
