Can you believe it is two weeks from Thanksgiving?! I love Thanksgiving, it is one of my favorite times of year. Now when I married my husband, Thanksgiving took on a whole new meaning. When you are the third generation of a family owned and operated butcher shop, the holiday season is a bit busy (a bit busy is code for pure craziness). He and his family will be working 12-15 hours days until the end of December. But we will take pure craziness over slow business any day. My mother-in-law often tells the story of how they had enchiladas one year for Thanksgiving because her turkey had been sold to a customer. I have always panicked a bit that the same would happen at our house. The closer it gets to the big day the more I start asking my husband if our turkey is well hidden in the back. You think I am joking...:)
Anyway, last year I wrote two blog posts regarding turkey tips. I managed to get my husband to answer a few turkey related questions. I thought I would post the links in case you missed it last year. Click the link below the image to read each blog post.
If you think of any other questions let me know and I will try to get an answer for you. :)
