We're off to visit the mummy-in-law for this long weekend. Monday is Canadian Thanksgiving.

And Alix and everyone too. Happy Thanksgiving.

I am hoping to grill a turkey breast to help celebrate with our Northern friends. We are out of town this weekend, so may actually do this on the real day!! Cranberries and dressing casserole. Oh, and gravy.

Thanksgiving 2015 - Planning Time

Must have gravy. There needs to be a law.

I actually defrosted a 20 pounder that will be cooked shortly to free freezer space, perfect since I'm half Canadian. Didn't realize it was Canada's Thanksgiving till I saw this post!

Well, since I last wrote this, she has had to cancel her Thanksgiving dinner. Sooo, I am having people over that day. There will be just 8 of us and I am planning a traditional dinner. How large a Turkey should I buy?

I think the rule of thumb is 1.5 pounds per person, so 12 pounds should do it. That's the size I always buy for just the two of us, but I really like Thanksgiving leftovers

Thursday I bought the sacrificial Thanksgiving turkey. It is an 11 pound store brand turkey I paid $0.69/Lb for. I found it's much cheaper than buying packages of wings and such for the stock.

Today I will practice my butchering skills and deconstruct that bird. I will separate two boneless breast halves, two boneless thighs for future meals. Then the rest of the turkey and giblets will be roasted and used for stock. I'll probably do the roasting and stock tomorrow.

SO wants a turkey dinner tonight so I'll probably do one of the breasts.
