Oh, dear, and it is headed our way!

Thanks Pacman You're gonna laugh but I don't think I've actually eaten turkey before. Perhaps but I don't know what it tastes like. Turkey isn't very popular in SA. Is it nice?

Ground turkey is kind of plain. That's why I mix seasoning salt with it and stuff the burgers with sauce and onions. It's pretty much like chicken though, just a much larger bird.

Snip, your curry sounds so yummy - and a surprise with the banana! yummm

Turkey is one of my favorites, and I roast many throughout the year. The ones I do are generally 22-24 pounds each time. They are much more flavorful than a chicken, I think, and make a wonderful stock after they're roasted. The best part is how much cooked meat you have for leftovers afterward :)

I agree with Pacanis, as the ground isn't all that fab... but if you make a mince out of it yourself, it's much better, because you can add in whatever you'd like in the mince.

As for my dinner tonight, I am so lucky! One of my co-workers makes tamales each Christmas, and I've just gotten some - yay! These are chicken filled and she uses just a small amount of masa compared to the meat.

I'll make a fresh tomatillo/green onion/cilantro/lemon juice sauce to top them, and will be serving them alongside a mixed greens salad, zucchini sauteed with garlic oil, and fresh navel oranges.

A "manly" meal of roast beast, gravy, mashed taters, buttered baby lima beans, iced tea, and caramel-butterscotch bars.

I knew I wasn't going to feel like cooking, so I bought a rotisserie chicken at Costco.

Well my ground turkey was NOT good so that plan was nixed in a hurry. But I made a huge pot of onion soup. TB had a bison smokie with his and I had a tsatsiki covered rice cake. The soup was great for a throw-together and without french bread croutons and cheese!

By the way, I put relish, fine chopped red onion, red chili flakes, salt, pepper and any fresh herbs I have going with my ground turkey. It makes great meatballs, burgers, you name it!

Taxlady - isn't it nice to have those rotisseries available when you're out of time?!
I usually use just part of the meat with dinner, and then save the good meat and boil the carcass with a few carrots, green onions, garlic and spices for a couple hours. Then I pass it through cheesecloth and freeze the stock for the next time I need to make soup.
