Or in keeping with the thread's theme, get back over to the little table.

Kind of sorry I started this thread, things got out of whack!
It was meant to help people with any cooking questions pre-Thanksgiving.
Since the busiest day on this site is Thanksgiving or leading up to it.

It wasn't a bad idea. I think people just aren't ready to get into it yet. I know I'm not.

I looked at all the on-line local restaurant menus I could think of that serve Turkey dinners off season/ on their regular menus. Scratched 'em all off the list for a preview night out. Ersatz/ canned gravy, too salty, watery turkey held in steam pans too long, dried out meat held under grow lights too long, gluey stuffing and worst of all-- no cranberries.

I guess I am too picky. I guess I am not thankful enough they even offer turkey on menus. I should shut up and be happy we even have thanksgiving to look forward to.

My daughter buys turkeys throughout the year when they are on sale. I have one of her small ones in my freezer. Whenever the mood strikes her, she cooks up a turkey dinner with all the fixings. You might get one in the middle of the summer.

I cooked up a big turkey with all the fixings this summer. Helps clean out the freezer, and nothing wrong with Thanksgiving in July (or was it August?)

We get a free turkey or two every year through DH's work. We are usually invited to relatives for T'giving, at least for the last 8 years, and they do the turkey.

Right on Dawg. The turkeys are prices so inexpensively at Thanksgiving we always buy 5. We have one at Thanksgiving then every 3 months we have another - with all the trimmings. We allow 1 extra for when company comes and stays more than a day. It's cheap but delicious eats.

By the time Thanksgiving rolls around again we are ready for another load of them.

In my area you can normally buy a whole turkey, ham or roast for about the same price as one pound of premium deli cuts.

It makes good cents to periodically have a feast.

I freeze the leftovers in small packages for sandwiches and casseroles.

I also simmer the bones for a pot of soup!
