Just bought a 16 lb Jennio turkey from Winco Foods for $0.48/ #. I would have preferred a Norbest turkey BUT they only had 20-24# in that brand.

I love turkey and cook it every Thanksgiving. No stuffing or dressing, since I don't care for that. I got a Honeysuckle for .49lb, but am keeping my eyes open for any more sales, so I can pick up another for the future.

I cook it in the morning, always the traditional way with medium seasoning. Thanksgiving dinner is at high noon, usually.

I use all the parts of the turkey afterwards for sandwiches and soup. My dog gets some, too, of course, plus she gets the gizzard & such.

I get regular country ham and cook both turkey and ham on Thanksgivings. Kids love both and there’s lots of leftovers.

Ok, so we just found out we’ll be home, just the two of us for Thanksgiving. Unless we decide to drive north to MO, I’ll cook all the usual suspects in small scale.

We always have family tradition oyster dressing cooked separately in an electric roaster (sauted onions & celery in butter with sage & salt & pepper & chopped fresh oysters after celery softened & chicken stock mixed into assorted breads dry cubed from bakery...turkey juices added as available from turkey.) It ends up with crunchy on sides & soft in middle consistency. I shove dressing over in pan once mashed potatoes are ready & keep them warm next to dressing in roaster.

The cavity of turkey is filled with halved lemons & rosemary and skin salt & peppered before putting in oven on convection roast setting.

I like to pan steam sweet potatoes and then treat them like "Bananas Foster". Peel and cut into 1" chunks. Over med-high heat, bring about an inch of water to boil in a skillet (be sure the skillet has a lid), add unsalted butter, potatoes and a large pinch of kosher salt, cover and steam until the water evaporates while butter remains and potatoes are almost done. Add brown sugar, mixing well with butter adding more butter if needed. Add booze of choice (I prefer dark rum) and reduce until most of the liquid has evaporated, leaving a nice glaze. You could add chopped, toasted pecans. Serve immediately or keep warm. Works great with carrots as well. I don't use a recipe.

This sounds wonderful.

Hubby will be slow smoking two turkey roasts out on the BBQ again this year. It is now our favorite way to eat turkey because it is so flavorful and juicy. We will also be having the typical sides dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, strawberry pretzel salad, and hawaain rolls. Oreo pie, and pecan pie for dessert.

I can't wait!!!
