Talking Turkey #familymeal #versatile #Frugal

For those of you that celebrated, I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s day. I missed my daughter and youngest granddaughter.

For Mother’s Day this year we smoked a turkey. We always buy a couple at the holidays for less than a dollar a pound and freeze them. I usually cut up one or two as well.

Today I smoked half the turkey, made potato and macaroni salad and hubby wanted stuffing. I know, sounds like a carb fest. I was happy with the turkey and sliced tomato.

I saved out the thighs to fry one night. I love a good fried thigh. I went ahead a smoked the legs. If no one eats them I will freeze and one night I can simply thaw and heat in the oven. The breast can be used for many things.

I will slice off some for sandwiches for lunches and make some turkey salad too. the other half of the breast I will cut up and use for stir fry,

And there is always good old roasted sliced breast with potatoes and gravy.

Did you have a good Mother’s day? Was you treated to a special meal? do you have a turkey recipe you like to share?

  1. I treated myself to carryout Chinese food. One of my boys lives on the East Coast and the other on the West Coast. I’m stuck in the middle missing them. The only thing I do with turkey is roast it. In the past, I’ve made chili, my mom’s recipe for goulash, and sloppy joes with ground turkey.

    1. I love turkey and try to buy on the winter holidays cut up a couple so I have it year round. But I do occasionally buy the ground or a small breast when I am out. Smoked turkey is amazing. (so is fried…)
