Oh, you thought hunting season was over?
Well.... it's turkey season, now.
No, I don't go out hunting these.
This is more my speed :D
Of course, it's not without its risks...
But we've avoided disaster so far :D
The biggest trick is fitting them into the freezer. "Them" you may be asking? Yes, THEM. I get four or five (or six) each year. Why not? They're easy to cook, delicious, and who says they're just for Thanksgiving? I'll bake a turkey, serve it for dinner, and freeze the left-overs to use in recipes that call for chicken.
And they're on sale!
I don't know about where you are, but here? If you're local, run right down to Cost Cutter or Food Pavilion. If you don't have a coupon, ask at customer service and they'll give you one :D Spend twenty-five dollars on other groceries (in the blink of an eye, in this house) and you'll get:
A box of stuffing mix
A can of chicken broth
A can of green beans
A can of cream of mushroom soup
A can of cranberry sauce
A packet of turkey gravy mix
A dozen fresh rolls
A five-pound bag of potatoes
A turkey, up to twenty pounds
for twenty bucks.
I'm dreaming of
a white Christmas Baked Turkey Taquitos, turkey pot pie, turkey-salad sandwiches, turkey enchiladas...
What do you do with your leftovers?
