Do you cook whole turkeys...

Posted by   + Show Post

other than for holidays?

I think I'm going to cook a turkey so I can freeze parts of it for soup and other dishes.

Yes, we just had one.  Though of course it was because our middle son was home from the Army for leave, and we had a family gathering.  DS won't be able to be home for the holidays, so we thought we'd have a holiday dinner now while he is here.

Yes.  I get a free turkey every November from an aunt.   Her family gets several free turkeys from the places they work, and they keep one and give away the extras to family.  I just cook it up, portion it, and use it for various meals.  We usually have some turkey left in the freezer well into the next year.  Also, we go to the same aunt's house for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so we don't have to cook our own turkey.  We just get the benefit of the meals, plus leftovers!
