Oh, I know where to get a Taser and I don't have to assault a policeman for it...

Well, with Thanksgiving coming up I'm sure there will be a turkey in there.

But that turkey neck always gets to be the wonderful Thanksgiving gravy. Try to get more necks. Those are great for stew/stock. Incredible flavor!!!

+1! I buy a few pounds of turkey necks and roast them with root veggies to use to make about 2-3 quarts of stock. Yum!

Sorry, Jo, I can't help myself. With limited freezer space, I can't help wanting to help you fill yours up. Guess I'm jealous. The first of the month, I fill mine up quickly. If I'm not careful, I break the fan that keeps both freezer and fridge cool. If I do that again, the maintenance guy with have a fit. He didn't like it last time it happened.

I didn't think it was over stuffed, but with the venting in the back of the freezer, it can be finicky.

Same for me!

I always have to think about how much room I have in the freezer when I'm out shopping and find a bargain.

I have been eating out of the freeer inventory to make sure I have room for a turkey.

The turkey wars should be starting soon, I need to be ready to take a prisoner or two!

I'm going to pick up packages of necks when I see them.

Thinking I should get on the phone and call OPM to get the correct word on how to pursue the cancellation of my health insurance. I've made my list of questions, along with the government form numbers that might apply. Gotta love trying to get something done with the feds. Yep, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you."

I'm presuming you're cooking for more people than just yourself, or is it just for your freezer?

Now that's a thought!

Tell me more, AB, please.

I live alone too, and can't imagine why I'd cook a whole turkey.
