No more leftovers
This year, our Thanksgiving leftovers were consumed in record time. For the past four years the holiday turkey leftovers would languish, undesired, in the fridge until I tossed them out.
I couldn't figure out why my family suddenly had no taste for turkey - that had never happened before. This year I found a free-range, hormone-free, antibiotic-free 20-lb. turkey, and once again, the family loves turkey. Then I remembered that for over a decade all I bought for our family was organic or free-range poultry. But when we moved here four years ago, we had no source for that anymore, and had to get what the grocery stores offered. Ugh.
There's a huge taste difference in a free-range turkey and a conventional grocery store turkey. Everything made with it - the dressing, the gravy, turkey sandwiches, turkey noodle soup - tastes different according to the bird used.
So the tasty bird and its carcass have been eaten up - every delicious morsel.
