My family insists on turkey for Thanksgiving. I always change it up for Christmas, prime rib roast, shrimp fondue, ham, steak, lasagna.

Nancy G---

we only eat breast here also------------but when they went up so high -------i started buying the ---24cent per lb whole turkeys and cutting them in half--------i stew the dark meat the day before for broth for my dressing ------and my cleaning lady takes all the dark meat for soups and salads later----------a big savings-----plus the dressing is much better since i've had the turkey broth than it was with chicken broth--------------------and you also get the giblet package-----a big plus over the bone-in breasts of the past-------------we also have cornbread dressing yum-yum i can hardly wait

it doesn't take nerve------------i just cut down between the thighs and side of breast and use scissors when possible and a carving knife to start it----------when i get that cut through to backbone i pick it up and break it off-------you may have to cut the skin then ---but not always-------all parts i've found this year are necks and they were over 2.00 per pound-------i cook the breast with the wings on it--------------and then you can freeze the dark meat and use in a recipe for a church dinner or some other use if you don't eat it yourself----------i only had a 10 lb turkey so it was 2.40 ------------the bone in breast was 2.99 -------almost 20.00 for 6 lbs-----------try it next  year

When my boys were still at home, I would buy the biggest turkey I could find.  Remove neck and giblets for broth. Cooked the liver separately and made pate.  After the feast, divied up the leftovers.  Made more broth from the bones and scrappy parts(wingtips etc) - good soup or turk& noodles.  Packaged up the meaty parts and froze for future meals.  A bit of work but we had several good meals from one bargain bird.
Now that those hungry teen-age boys are on their own, a turkey lasts way too long even though we like all the goodies one can make with it.

Thanks Nellie ----- I went to Walmart tonight planning on buying some cheap turkey parts.  They didn't have any - just ground turkey and sliced turkey breast.  (sliced raw??)   Maybe my next trip ........

Always have to have turkey and a pork roast or a ham besides.  That way there are always leftovers to divide up for family to take home.

If the whole turkeys are a good price I will buy them, otherwise I just buy the turkey breast.  I always have dark turkey meat in the freezer to make on the side for those who don't like white meat lol(my Mom's friend thinks white meat is too dry).

There sure is a big range on turkey prices this year.  One store wants you to spend $100 to get the turkey at 49 cents a pound.  But most of them have a $25 to $50 range.  Since I already have almost everything at home, seems kind of pointless to spend that kind of money  just to get a cheap turkey.

Not sure you would like goose, Gale.  But you never know.  I found them to be very greasy.

We are having T-Bone steaks on the grill.  Since it is just my husband and myself, that is our big splurge.  Christmas we will have turkey as you son will be with us.

We will have turkey. Since everyone likes white meat we will probably roast a turkey breast.
