We have a week left and then Thanksgiving will be upon us. As the holidays start rolling by, I continue to miss the opportunity of having family over for dinner, but I think each year it helps us focus even more on what to be thankful for. As everyone is busy putting Christmas decorations, (ALREADY!), we are working daily to keep a balanced schedule for our family. One of the things we decided this year is to keep Thanksgiving simple and to share the joy of the holidays with another family with no relatives in the area. We really look forward to it and what better way to do it than to share a spread?
When I started thinking of cooking and prepping food for this holiday, I was already thinking of choosing a turkey from a local farm. The next thing on my list was just choosing the RIGHT one! With so many choices I was growing a little overwhelmed with my choices and then found out that Whole Foods has a whole list of turkey options that made is a simpler choice. When I chatted with the folks at Whole Foods Devon, I was told that all their turkeys would be coming from Koch Turkey Farm, a local third-generation family farm and that they will be offering a variety of free-range turkeys. How exciting, because, all I was interested in was buying a turkey from a local place anyway!
Another great fact is that their organic turkeys are the cheapest around, coming in at $3.99 / lb. What a steal!
Does everyone know about the different types of turkeys available this season? I for sure had only recently heard of heritage turkeys but it baffled me knowing the options I had available to me. Check out the variety:
Are you convinced yet? Sounds like it is a perfect deal and there is sure to be a turkey for those with specific interests. Go online and order your turkey now and be surprised!
Not sure you are going to do a turkey this year? Well, I am on the fence as well. I might just hold off until family comes into town in December, (SO EXCITED!) and stick to making pies and ordering from Whole Foods. How about entering a nice giveaway?
