If you buy $25 worth of other stuff at one of my local stores, the turkeys are 78 cents a pound. I bought three loaves of Schar bread to make stuffing with, a container of chicken broth to add to the drippings for gravy, some potatoes, and a TWENTY-FIVE pound turkey!!!
Nope, I'm not having people over. It's all for me. I'll cook it, debone it, put packets in the freezer, and I won't have to cook for a LONG time.
I haven't been able to eat turkey for years because of the stuff they inject them with. A lot of them have corn. Now that I have gotten corn back I am going to pig out. Because my diet was so restricted I got used to eating the same thing day after day so it'll be a while before I get sick of it. When I do I can make a gluten-free lasagna for variety. Or I can get out some of that delicious sauerbraten that I put in the freezer. Or I can just have a bacon egg an cheese sandwich like I did this morning.
It is a whole new world for me. I never thought food could make a person so happy but I've been doing the happy dance all day. You know, I used to tell newbies (especially those with lots of other intolerances like I USED TO have, that it was easier if you just look at eating as a necessary bodily function. That made it easier than remembering and mourning the things I couldn't have anymore. But it got better. And my prayer for all of my multi-intolerant friends is that soon you too will all be better and be able to get it down to just gluten.
But right now I'm giddy with joy over a stupid turkey. And I'm not even ashamed of it. A great big stupid TWENTY-FIVE pound turkey!!
Nothing wrong with that I felt the same way when i got spinach back.
