Turkeys are great for singles. A big cheap bird. Lots of meat to store and save.

Or Cornish Hens?? Hmmmmm......


As for turkey, you could always buy a turkey BREAST - and that would leave you some (but not a ton of) leftovers.

I made brownies out of a box once and mixed up the water/milk measurements AND the packages each wet ingredient was supposed to go with.

The brownies came out flat, but so richly infused with chocolate. I have not been able to recreate it for some reason. Those were the best brownies I ever made.

I use mustard to coat a pork butt before putting on the rub. The mustard helps the rub stick, but does not affect the taste. I have not tried it, but I heard mayo does the same (not changing the taste).

probably- just watch carefully to make sure the little birds don't dry out, but I was impressed!

definitely- theres just two of us, 99% of the time, but its great for sandwiches and casseroles (enchiladas and tacos too), for the rest of the week, and I will even boil up the carcass and make a hearty soup!

Makes perfect sense. Mayo is oil, eggs, and spices. Perfect for the outside of a turkey.

I use mayo and some spices on chicken breasts or tenderloins then coat in seasoned (or not) bread crumbs, with a little dab of butter and bake, always turns out moist. Never thought of covering a whole bird, great idea.
