My Mother found this recipe many many years ago in a local newspaper. The original clipping is long gone now, but it remains a family favorite year after year. You can add mashed potatoes, gravy, leftover veggies...it's all good!"

- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 carrots, thinly sliced

- 1 1⁄2 quarts turkey stock (leftover gravy mixed with water works great!) or 1 1⁄2 quarts beef stock (leftover gravy mixed with water works great!)
