Another Turkey?

November 28th, 2017 at 04:16 am

Our next-door neighbor came over this afternoon with a bird in the hand. She'd bought a frozen turkey breast and thawed it for Thanksgiving, but ended up going to her daughter's house to take care of her grandkids. And now she's headed out of town for a week, and didn't want to roast another turkey breast. Well, you can't really look a gift turkey in the mouth, can you? But this make seven turkeys/breasts I've roasted in the past three weeks--two for the congregate dining site, one for us, and three for our Thanksgiving with friends. I've made bone broth from all of them; indeed the freezer is fully stocked (get it?) with broth. And yet. So I roasted yet another bird this afternoon and besides the turkey sandwiches, it looks like turkey tikka, turkey fried rice, and a turkey pie is coming up soon. If you hear us gobbling.. . .

In minor other news, I had an emissions check on the car today, bought coffee cream and salad, and graded endless papers. More poultry adventures on the horizon. Three more weeks in the semester.

    If the family is flexible, most chicken recipes work just as well. You could also create something unexpected from the list based on ingredients at hand. Possibly choose either soup, dinner entree or lunch every other week.

    Nothing fowl about a free turkey! OK, I could not resist that poultry joke. I can understand is either feast or famine, but free is always good and it sounds like you are making good use of the freebie.

    Yep--it was turkey fried rice last night, my fellow punsters.
