Happy Thanksgiving!

Just kidding. I obviously know it's not at all November.

But it didn't feel like it this morning as I stood for an hour and cleaned a 20 lb. turkey I had cooked through the night.

Why in the world was I doing this if it isn't anywhere near Thanksgiving?

Good question!

Last year, there was a bin of turkeys on sale at the grocery store for $6.99 flat. I thought, that's amazing! I picked out the biggest one I could find with the intention of freezing it until Thanksgiving this year.

I was right on track until...Todd and I went to my place to get a load of stuff a couple nights ago and we accidentally left the turkey on the kitchen table. Needless to say, it was thawing quite nicely when I went over the next day.

I was afraid it would be ruined if I tried to refreeze it, so I decided to just cook it. I threw it in the oven overnight and at 6 a.m. this morning I was standing in the dark cleaning my bird.

Happy Thanksgiving!
