Plan for your turkey ahead of time
Spotted this mound of raw pork shaped into a pig at Whole Foods and captured it on the camera phone. Didn’t do it justice. I always talk to the butcher about a week before Thanksgiving and get information on the best day to pick up the bird, what my different choices will be, and what size I should get. This way, when I belly up to the counter a few days before turkey day I have done my homework before slogging through the crowd. I go to Whole Foods so I can get a fresh organic turkey. There really is no substitute! Those frozen beasts from Krogers and Randalls are like plastic compared to a fresh organic bird.
