The only turkey on our table this year were our candlesticks.
I've had turkey-less Thanksgivings before, but this is the first time I prepared for turkey and didn't have it. I bought a fresh turkey yesterday. The "buy by" date was 11/26. But I opened the package this morning and PEEEEEEE-YEW!
Back to the store it went and corned beef then became our Thanksgiving meat. The one concession I made to the corned beef was to serve it with carrots and not turnips and butternut squash.
Maybe on St. Paddy's Day, I should cook turkey and cabbage?
