Truth to tell, does anyone really like roast turkey?


I mean turkey breast/white meat is well enough for a sandwich and or in salad, but have never been keen on eating it on its own.


Even as a kid always mushed my turkey together with cranberry sauce, dressing, gravy or something in order to get it down. That way it isn't so bad...


Now leftovers the next few days aren't so bad. Mom would make things like "turkey chow mien", turkey pot pies, turkey sandwiches (great along with some nice hot soup...), those sort of things. The carcass would be boiled down for stock to make turkey noodle and veggie soup.

Yes. But I agree it's best eaten with cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes and gravy.

Dunno what "Sprout's" is, but that sounds good!

This year, we'll be in the Galapagos, so no idea what the fare will be there!
Tortoise soup!

Our "new" tradition is to all go to Cracker Barrel. Nice atmosphere, they cook and clean, what's not to like? I do like "leftovers" so I typically buy a prepared dinner to have at home, and also make some family favorites at home. We consider Thanksgiving to be a week-long feast, not just one meal! We like grazing that whole long weekend!

For over 30 years, my two sons and I go away for Thanksgiving week, so no one is home to cook. We try to find a restaurant where we are to have turkey, etc. so it feels like Thanksgiving.

Since I don't like the gravy that is usually served with these meals, I have usually used salsa to help eat the white meat turkey.

Grocery store somewhat akin to Whole Foods.

I go out of town for the weekend every Thanksgiving and eat at a nice buffet. I have no desire to cook the meal anymore.
