A Whole Turkey?
We made a trip to Walmart soon after our return from our honeymoon, returned some things including a roaster that I decided I could replace by a decent roasting pan and just use the oven and have one less gadget in our already too small kitchen. So after looking at several nice department stores and Target we finally found the roasting pan I wanted at Walmart, I almost hate that. Anyway, I got excited about the pan so in the poultry section I found a nice little small turkey (12 lbs), and took it home.
Jacob was quite skeptical about my so-called turkey skills, especially after I failed at defrosting. But we cooked it in about 3 1/2 hours and now, a week later, Jacob is still munching on the bits of turkey. Man, he loves the stuff. He had turkey sandwiches all week for lunch, I made him turkey pot pie mid-week and for dessert, after dinner, he reaches for it. I’m quite sick of the stuff after a week to be honest, but I’ve mixed up dinner enough a sandwich here and there isn’t too much.
So maybe 12 pounds of meat is too much for a pair of people but it was fun, cheaper than other meat and a fun adventure for us! Plus turkey pot pie was to die for and used up those expired biscuits, ha.
