Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

This simple soup is great for dinner after a long day of Thanksgiving shopping, or putting up your tree as so many of us do on this long weekend! Remember to stir clockwise!!!

Rice is a prosperity food so adding it to this soup will bring good money energy! Something we could all use during this holiday season. Of course you can also make this with left over chicken at any time of year.
