When Turkey Day Becomes Turkey Week!

Rating: 4.9

Every year it's the same old story

Very fun read Lee, I look forward to the turkey sandwiches and my recipe for Turkey a la King but each year I try to remember to buy a smaller turkey as I have to remember it's not my mothers house and I'm not cooking for eighteen. All the best, Diane
