Stewed Turkey Wings

Do you have to work on Thanksgiving Day? Will there be hungry faces looking at you after you walk in the door from work asking you where is the turkey? Who has time to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal when you've got to put in 8-12?  What to do?? Well....there are ways around this...there is a way to keep turkey on the table Thanksgiving Day and you off your feet in the kitchen.  How?  Stewed turkey wings!
With stewed turkey wings and rice you are almost halfway Thanksgiving there.  Stewed turkey wings are also a winner because you can throw everything in a crockpot and come home to a delicious treat. Winning!  It may not be the nice turkey served up on a platter, but it tastes good and smells up the house in a Thanksgiving way just the same.
