I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year, as I have for the last half-dozen. Usually I recruit my mother and sister to help make the meal, but due to health problems it doesn’t look like it this time. Which means it’s up to me and the kids.
When faced with a daunting task – make a list.
First on the list is a trip to the grocery store. I almost forgot I had to get the turkey with enough time for it to thaw so I could pull out such wonderful things as all the internal organs they put in the little paper bag then stuff up the bird’s back side. Yeah, ‘eww’ is right.
My local Super 1 supermarket has a great sale. If you buy $25 worth of food, and my T-day list requires more than that, you can get the turkey for 24 cents a pound. My turkey cost me $3.50.
I’m seriously thinking of going back tomorrow to get one for the freezer. Now if only I hadn’t unplugged the darn thing.
