Feed Me: Turkey and Orzo Soup

I love leftovers, especially Thanksgiving leftovers. We were lucky to celebrate several Thanksgivings over the holiday weekend, and brought home lots of goodies. My dad let me keep the turkey carcass so I could make soup. It was so delicious and a perfect dinner after eating ridiculous amounts. I did go a little overboard with the orzo, so next time I will use half. What do you make with your leftovers?
