I didn't know what to expect with the musical, "The Toxic Avenger", but I was pleasantly surprised! I laughed so much my belly hurt, it was silly and fun, but yet a good story.

I didn't know that this was a movie back in the 80's, and I heard after, not a good one, but the play looked like something I thought Rob would enjoy when I heard about it a couple months ago. I was able to get good seats for the Saturday preview show at a very decent price so we checked it out last night with a couple of friends and I'm so glad we did! I highly recommend it and wouldn't be surprised if we go see it again! The whole cast was incredible, the score was catchy and laughable, in a good way, and you'll be routing for "Toxie" the whole time.

Don't know what to do with all that leftover turkey? Here is my Turkey Barley Soup recipe.

6 Cups Chicken Broth (or homemade stock)
1-2 Cups diced Turkey (or chicken)
1/3 Cup Pearl Barley
1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
2 Celery Stalks, sliced
3 Carrots, sliced
1-2 Bay Leaves
1 tsp Thyme
2 tsp dried Parsley
Salt & Pepper to taste.

Cook in slow cooker on low for 6 hours. I love my slow cooker!!

NOTES: When I made mine on Monday, I also added a whole turkey leg, all the meat fell off when the soup was done. Just remove the bones and skin, but I believe doing this added some extra flavor, and I will do this for now on.
