slow cooker lemon-y chicken noodle soup

**UPDATE: Now you can also find this recipe here!**

I found a forgotten turkey in my freezer last week, so we decided to
go all out with a turkey dinner this past weekend. It was SO good,
but now there's the issue of leftovers... or more specifically:

What should we do with them to make them new and exciting?

This recipe is a great, simple and comforting way to use up your
leftover turkey or chicken!

Let's face it... Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!

Slow Cooker Lemon-y Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

8 cups chicken stock
3 carrots, peeled & chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 cups chopped cooked turkey or chicken
Juice of 2 lemons
1 parmesan cheese rind*
1/2 package noodles - short or long and broken
salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon oregano

Throw everything into your crockpot, stir to combine,
and cook on low for at least 4-6 hours (the longer the better!),
until soup is hot, rind is melted, and noodles are soft.

*If you don't already save your leftover parmesan cheese rinds...
PLEASE do! Toss them in the freezer and add them to your soups.
They add such a great layer of flavor to your soups!
