How long can you safely keep a thawed turkey in the fridge before you have to cook it?

I was going to cook my turkey today when I was asked to wait till next week.
My turkey is almost completely thawed so I know I can not refreeze it. So I need to know how long I can wait. Any of you moms know?

  • cook it tomorrow, slice the meat off, freeze the meat and the basting juices seperately, and the day before you need it, put it in the fridge, and a few hours before the meal throw the meat & juices in a crock pot or electric roaster to reheat.
