Thanks - tried the turkey, too...
Thanks for all the comments. Two things: I tried the turkey, having bought a turkey breast and slow roasted it. Sliced it up, froze some, some for sandwiches. It was lovely. Well worth the effort, which, by the way, wasn't all that much. Again, I just stuck it in the oven (pepper/sage/thyme and - I cheated (again) - experimenting with sprinkling some chicken boullion powder (Goya) over all). The girls have lunch bags that are insulated plus we have those freezable ice packs (they're soft packets when not frozen).
