Wild turkey

Mindy’s Note: I really, really hate turkeys. I don’t condone the eating of most meat, but turkeys? DO IT. Eat two of them! In fact, if you could go out and kill your turkey yourself, I’d be even happier. When I was living in California we had a really nasty problem in my neighborhood with the wild turkey population that led to my burning hatred of turkeys. All day and all night they would sit outside of my window making noise. That is, when they weren’t roosting on top of my car. Seriously, have you ever woken up at 5AM to chase a flock of 45lb wild turkeys off your car? It’s not right!!! Anyway, enjoy your Thanksgiving feast and have an extra cold turkey sandwich for me.
