The One that Got Away

My fresh Amish turkey has been deconstructed and my gravy has been made.  My house already smells like Thanksgiving.

I was discussing the holiday with my friends at yoga and someone mentioned wild turkeys.  I mentioned that I had blogged about them roaming my neighborhood this summer.  I wonder if Tom is still out there searching for Tess?

Here she is:


One of my friends was going out for dinner, but was buying a turkey to cook so they would have leftovers.  I don't get it.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, tomorrow.

  1. Oh I do Denise. I love cold turkey leftovers. One thing I don't like about going out on Christmas Day. I have never eaten wild turkey but as I prefer domestic to wild goose, I suspect the same would apply with turkeys.

    Have a wonderful day and don't eat too much!! Happy Thanksgiving

    1. My point was why wouldn't you just cook the turkey any other time. And why go to a restaurant and then cook a turkey at home. I actually bought a larger turkey this year so that I could have leftovers. My sons usually take off with what's left.

    2. Maybe because for some of us turkey is synonymous with Thanksgiving and Christmas and they never cook it at any other time. I know I don't.

    1. There is an interesting article in the Detroit News today about wild turkeys harassing workers in the next community over from mine. Seems they've taken over the parking lot and won't even let folks out of their cars. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Because turkey leftovers are the most amazing things ever!

    Sorry for freaking you out today. The other posts aren't as grisly, I promise. :)

    1. Yes, they are good. My family came back on Friday. But if I am going to cook a turkey, I just as soon do it at home for the holiday instead of going out for dinner in a restaurant and then cooking one anyway.
