This is going to sound kind of dumb, but I have a problem concerning a turkey that was supposed to be cooked for Easter dinner. I answered a question about the Easter meal and got to thinking I could pose this question here.
About a month ago, I gave a friend of mine a frozen turkey I had. The deal was that we would collaborate on an Easter meal, and since she's a more eager cook than I am and has an electric roasting pan that doesn't heat up her whole house, she said she'd fix the turkey and the rest of the dinner, and that along with contributing the meat which is the main expense, I could bring a dessert. Win-win for everybody.
Only now, she's decided she doesn't want to do theEaster meal. Her eyes have been bothering her a lot lately, and she doesn't feel up to it. I understand that. But when I suggested she could drop off the still frozen turkey at my house, she said no, maybe she'd cook it for our church potluck next week or for her birthday, which is coming up soon. She said I gave her the turkey, and even if we didn't eat it on Easter, my family andI would be having some at the potluck or get invited over for her birthday anyway. But I was kind of planning on keeping the leftovers, or splitting them with just her, because they would go a long way in making week night dinners. If the turkey goes to the potluck, it'll be picked clean, so we'll get what we eat that day, but probably nothing else.
So I've got a lot of feelings going on. My boyfriend says it isn't worth squabbling over a stupid turkey, and just to let it go. Maybe he's right. But I feel taken advantage of, like it's kind of not just about the turkey now. Plus, I have nothing particularly special for Easter. He says that doesn't matter and that it's a petty thing to worry about.
What would you do?
