Turkey, treats and Prosecco

Hi Folks-

So we have the holiday feel going on outside!! Yay! I’m definitely getting in the mood, which is helpful, because I have a store to run and shopping to do!!

I also have, amazingly enough, 1 Turkey up for grabs. Vermont Stonewood Farm turkey, 22.4 pounds, fresh and available for $4.99 a pound. Call the store or shoot me an email if you are interested. Calling is a slightly better idea but I will do my best to check email but definitely first come first served.

We of course have all kinds of great treats (salumi dried sausage, smoked gouda dip, artisan cheeses, fun wine and beer) to make a well loved meal spectacular.

We brought in a great new Prosecco, La Luca to start the holidays with a little bubbly. At $13.59 a bottle it drinks at more like $17 to $20. Very good, Chelsea and I tried some tonight and she ordered a case. Beautiful on its own but also perfect for those champagne cocktails or mimosas.

You might wonder why I have extra turkey (you might not wonder). Our son Alec informed me that he had our turkey about a week ago, his friend had raised it and he was helping butcher. So of course I’m all like “I’m in, sounds great, but I’m going to hang on to my ordered turkey in the 19 to 24 pound range because what if you have tiny little turkeys…”

Hah, I’m still in but he just upped my cooking game quite a bit, 37.5 pounds of homegrown turkey will be gracing our table this Thanksgiving. I’m thinking about brining it in the bathtub :-). We will serve moist, tender, delicious, well cooked turkey this year as always but I believe our techniques may need to be altered just a touch.

Dinner got the short straw or in this case, the large turkey. We had ordered as well as we could but turkeys are animals after all and they don’t follow precise sizing and so after we made everybody at the store as happy as we could we had a 38 pound bird for Chelsea. I believe there were six of us for dinner. Chelsea’s pro tip: Absolutely skip anything that tells you to flip it half way through cooking. Right on Chels! Not flipping it!

If turkey isn’t your thing, check out the Halibut we brought in!
