Thread: Amputee turkey

    Default Amputee turkey

    Had to get a couple of things at Stop & Shop and while there took a look at
    the big freezer that had the turkeys. In it was a large cut in half hotel
    turkey breast about 7 pounds, fresh, not frozen. Good deal at 69 a pound.
    We don't care for the legs anyway so this is a better deal than the whole
    turkey (same price) we put in the freezer for future use. I probably should
    have taken both halves.

    We had a rib roast tonight so it will be turkey tomorrow.

    I went to both Safeway and Raley's tonight. No specials to speak of,
    other than the unadvertised half-off fresh birds. I wish they were just
    a teeny bit less in price (because the fresh price is still up there).

    However, Raley's did have Honeycrisp apples for $2.47/lb. I grabbed a few.

    We are "going Greek" and making pita-style sandwiches with the leftover
    lamb from Thanksgiving. I'll be roasting a turkey tomorrow. I couldn't
    stand the thought of missing out on the traditional foods after hearing
    all the wonderful meals everyone had -- not that what we did could be
    sneezed at. It was wonderful. Just have a hankerin' for a smidge of
    dressing and a smattering of mashed sweet potatoes with roasted
    marshmallows!

    You just know I would have taken both breasts. I don't think I've
    ever seen half a turkey breast for sale. At 7 pounds it must have
    been one huge tom.

    So why did you freeze it?

    When I read amputee turkey I was reminded that when I opened my turkey
    this year one wing tip was missing, didn't affect anything but it
    looked weird. Tonight we finished off the last of the turkey, I
    picked the bones clean, was just enough. I still have three baked
    sweet potatoes and about a quarter of the kasha varnishkas left, and
    half that small apple pie. I'm turkeyed out.

    Didn't. The frozen one was the one we got before Thanksgiving. We went out
    to a friends that day but took advantage of the sale for future use.
