Free Turkey

by Bethany Maines

Over Thanksgiving, my grocery store was giving away free turkeys for those who spent over $100. Thinking that it would be a small turkey, my husband who was shopping at the time, said, "Sure! Who doesn’t want a free turkey!"

And really, who wouldn’t?

And then he came home with a 23-pound turkey. That didn't fit in our freezer.

We tried shoving it in six different ways from Sunday and then called up my mom and said, "Guess what? We're providing the turkey!" And she said, "Guess what? I'm cooking a roast!" So we agreed to try it again for Christmas and I called around and found a friend with spare freezer space. Only Christmas arrived and mom declared that Christmas dinner was going to be small and simple. As in... no turkey. But I had sworn to my friend that her freezer would be hers again after Christmas. So now I'm looking up how to cook turkey and inviting my in-laws over.

They say that New Years is a time for trying new things and I guess I’ll be starting early with turkey cooking. Wish me luck as I enter the world of large scale cooking.

  1. I hope that all worked out. If not, you could donate to a shelter or to a church that feeds people.
