Texas

In my opinion:yep
yes you do Mary, because you know Texas is another country and everyting is bigger. so a Texas lb could be two or three lbs in Oklahoma. or that's what the last Texan I met told me :colors he also sold me a very nice bridge out in California but i haven't got to go and see it yet.

Here's a stab at it

Here's a stab at it

$0.14 (CAD) per lb. or $0.06 (CAD) per Kg.

$3.12 (CAD) for a 48.4 Kg. turkey...

:reye2

Turkey prices

I have no idea where you guys and gals get prices like that.

The last couple of birds I bought (Grade A - not Utility!) averaged about 40.00 for a 20 pounder. I could be off by about 25 percent but I can assure you that I have not been able to buy a turkey for 38 cents a pound - ever!

It's a known fact that turkeys are cheaper down south. I always figured it was because you all only eat it at Thanksgiving and Christmas whereas I will also cook one in February or March when my stomach growls for white meat.



P.S. for those of you who have never tried this:

5lbs of spuds + 1 package of philidelphia cream cheese + 1 cup of sour cream + teaspoon of garlic powder + parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. Make your mashed potatoes the night before and reheat on turkey day.

(I whipped up 15 pounds of spuds last month!) :wub

Mary

1 kilogram is 2.21 pounds, therefore 38 cents per pound is 84 cents per kilogram

Rick

The turkey my mother bought was $.09 cents a pound. My math was based on 9 cents for 22 lbs.

I bought a turkey today that was free. They threw it in with the spiral sliced ham. (The ham was expensive, though, at $2.99/lb.)

At Safeway in Washington, small turkeys (under 12 lbs) were 0.39 USD per US lb, and over that were something like 0.25 USD per US lb, so the RatLadies and I enjoyed a 9.75 lber for about 3.80 USD. We shared it with my friend's cats and dog (separate feedings, of course), and fed the organs and bones to the gulls and crabs. I refilled the squirrel feeder, so the squirrels and chipmunks were also feasting.

Pete and Rats
