Stretching a turkey breast

Okay, turkey breasts were on mega sale lately, so we picked one up and am stretching meals from it as best we can. Here are the meals we have come up with so far (they have been spaced out a bit so we aren't eating turkey every night)

Day One: Turkey breast with green beans and homemade rolls (from the recipe "5 minutes a day to artisan breads" off of the Mother Earth News website.

Day Two: Boiled snot out of carcass with onions and garlic. Made turkey noodle soup.

Day Three: Turkey and cheddar quesadillas with salsa.

Day Four: I don't know yet, but I have enough for a lunch or small meal. Maybe a small turkey pot pie?

Hey four meals are not too bad for a family of four (one of which is a 12 year old that is approaching 6 feet tall!).
