Thank Goodness for Turkeys: Healthy Eating

I am quite intimate with turkeys. I walk my dog regularly on Turkey Hill Road, live two doors down from Turkey Hill Lodge, and have an unofficial turkey crossing in the front of my house. Some mornings the turkeys crossing the road get very indigent toward drivers. They gooble and hoot at them, "Slow down, I'll get across eventually... I don't fly very fast either."

One afternoon when my daughter was about 4 she ran outside with a bucket in one hand and a mallet in the other, chasing after the turkeys that had congregated in our yard yelling, "I'm gunna kill me a turkey for dinner tonight." She was not successful. But we regularly enjoy turkey in our household even when it is not Thanksgiving time. It is a lean nutritious meat.

    1. Soup is great to make with the carcass. Lots of little pieces of meat. It is great not to waste it.
