Turkey US 38 Cents a Pound

Ok, so getting close to the US Thanksgiving Holiday ... I know all my Canadian friends already celebrated theirs ... so this is old news to them ... but I love turkey!

In fact, I usually purchase 5 or 6 of the big birds, when they are cheap around Thanksfgiving, and we cook them every other month or so.

We then cut up the turkey meat and freeze them into little sandwich bag sized portions ... which are perfect size to take in the trailer. And we usually travel down the road with two or more bags.

Thaw the little bag of turkey out in the refrigerator to help keep things cool ... then throw the meat into a small crock pot with a can of cream of chicken soup ... and you have a meal, with a loaf of french bread, some carrots and celery.

Yum yum.

Since turkey's on sale, now's the time to fill your freezer.

Lowest price here is 38 US cents ... but I had to spend US$ 25 to get that price.

Pam made me a shopping list today ... and when the total reached $25, I quit shopping and checked out, with the largest turkey I could find ... 22.1 pounds (10 kg ).

Later in the week, I'll go back for another.

So what's turkey selling for in your neck of the woods?

Hi Ches

>> 90 cents cdn

Is that per kilo ... or per pound?

And Ches, most people overcook turkey, so the white meat is dry.

I've kept a log of all the turkeys I've cooked (my job to cook the turkey) over the past 15 years or so ... weight/brand/time cooked/results.

I guarantee if you have a thick slice of my moist white meat, over smashed potatoes and stuffing (externally cooked), smothered in gravy ... you'd like it!

And the little bags of frozen turkey meat (which you could probably store outside in Fernie!) make for an easy camping meal.

Thats 0.90 Per pound according to my wife and I don't argue with her about what things cost:) I think my delemia with turkey stems back from my army days. You probably know what I mean. I like stuffing, gravey. cranberry sauce. Damm you ,you got me hungry:hap2

PS where I work we give 1.40 Cdn for 1.00 us, Bank is about 1.51.

turkey

$.69 /lb two week ago here in OK. haven't looked lately, and don't take the paper. But as my Turkeyday family gathering just grew in number, I'll have to go find another one. Had 27 live ones go across the 'backyard' a while back, but I'd have to pluck one of those if, and I repeat, if I could catch one.

Not bad

City Market. Butterball. Flat $9 for 16-24 lbs., with C.M. card, no other purchase required although we stocked up for the week. That's about 39 cents/lb. for the big one we got. (Jenni-O brand was also available for $5, or about .25 for a 20 lb. bird.)

B.t.w., when traveling this summer, we used Charles' idea to pick up "value cards" at the supermarkets and keep them in the rig. We found that various chains are owned by the same holding company, for instance City Market, Krogers and Ralphs. Sometimes the value cards are interchangeable. Then, it was interesting that Ralphs won't honor a City Market card, but City Market will honor a Ralphs card--go figure. I hate to carry the cards, but sometimes (locally at least) the savings are substantial.

Hey Ches, I know that Canada's Thanksgiving is earlier in the season. Is there a the traditional meal for that holiday?

Turkey enchiladas

And by the end of the week, we'll finish off the turkey with enchiladas. My they're good, and easy to make.

Pam and I

We'll have everyone here for Thanksgiving too ... and will consume most of the turkey ... which is why I buy 5 or 6 turkeys when they are cheap.

Pam and I will often cook a 20 pound turkey for just the two of us.

House smells just as good as it does at Thanksgiving ... but we have a lot more leftovers.

After she and I eat our fill, we'll make a little assembly line ... cutting all the leftover meat into little bite sized chunks ... and Pam putting a couple of handfuls (because her hands are always clean) into zip lock sandwich bags for the freezer.

George ... you've given me a great idea .... A can of enchilada sauce and a frozen bag of cut-up turkey, warmed up in the trailer .... a southwestern twist on my turkey and can of chicken soup meal.

Buy those turkeys while they are cheap folks ... store that leftover meat in the freezer. Think of all the quick, easy, one pot camping meals you're making!

Turkey, 9 cents! (US)

Austin, Texas-- With minimum purchase of $25, turkey price plummets to $0.09 per pound. That's $1.98 for a 22 lb. bird.

(Since I said Austin, Texas, do I have to do the money and weight exchanges?)
