It weighs 13.55 pounds...smaller than I usually buy. I always send a good amount home with the boys and have enough for a day or two of leftovers for us. Then I put the rest in the freezer to use in soups.
I was considering buying a couple of extra legs to cook with it, but really, this will be enough (unless I just see some turkey legs that are a good bargain).
Also on Sunday, I cubed up some bread to be drying out for the dressing.
Monday night I took my Thanksgiving plates out of the closet. My thoughtful husband surprised me with this set one Thanksgiving a few years ago.
Eating off these nice dishes makes the day seem more special. They are so pretty I hate to box them up again afterwards.
So, Tuesday, I will go buy the rest of the stuff I need for the meal. Then Wednesday night I will bake the pies.
Since we are talking turkey, these pictures are from 2010. We had the largest flock of wild turkeys pass through our yard that I have ever seen here.
You are safe with us, turkeys! We only eat the ones from the freezer section!
