Sent DH to buy a non-injected turkey. He said he couldn't find one in the 16-18 lb. range that I asked for so we got one that is a little smaller. Today I see on my home page that Millennials are changing the trend by buying smaller turkeys.

Rascally Millennials strike again!
Haha!

Well to be honest, my sister in law is bringing the pumpkin pie. We are going to buy the pecan pie. The buttermilk pie is super easy to make. So the rum cake is the biggest deal and it's really not that hard.

I LOVE turkey and can't think of Thanksgiving without it. Note, I'll have other meats, too, but the bird is a must.

Turkey is something I do not want to cook. Aside from the sheer quantity of meat (retiree household), doing it up right, old-school, means too many components for me to handle. I sure do miss the ubiquitous full roast turkey dinners that were so common year ‘round in New England restaurants. Those kinds of dinners are rare birds in Colorado. Maybe true for many other areas, too. It seems like slow-cooked meals are becoming almost dodo birds.

All-day, made-from-scratch meals have almost flown the coop. I should raise a squawk about it. But I am too chicken.

Oh, 7734. This post started as a serious post but I got carried away by a flight of fancy.

I cooked a turkey in January and just used up the last of the frozen slices plus frozen gravy. It was still delicious. I just made some buttered toast and heated up a few slices in the gravy and dumped it over. Delicious! I think I still have a container of gravy that I need to use. Doubt it'll keep till next fall.

That said, I hate cooking it because it is a mess for days. I simmered up the carcass to make broth which I'm now using in soups, so that extended the messy kitchen by a few days.

I was thinking about just buying a breast to roast but they're so expensive here. I'm keeping an eye on sales.

I've tried that, but it wasn't the same! I think the lack of the other parts coming together (juices and all) via a whole bird changed things.

Brining helps. If I bother to make a turkey I coat it in chipotle powder and cumin and have it for a day or two and then turn it into enchiladas. I stopped making it a couple years ago and started going with duck instead.
