roasted-whole-turkeyOn December 31, I went off to hunt for lunch.  On my way, I asked for a tangible sign, a white feather.  I didn’t exactly get a white feather…

I was walking around for something to snack on, something relatively healthy.  As I was walking around the back of the store, near the meat section, the lady ahead of me said, “oh!,” and grabbed something from the lower shelf in front of me.

I looked down and saw a very interesting sign. “1 free per person.”  So, I did what any foodie and woman would do, faced with free food.  I grabbed a whole roasted turkey. LOL

It was very funny at the checkout, and even the Cashier was very surprised that her store was giving out free turkeys. She wanted to take a break to reserve one for herself!

On the way back, as I lugged the whole heavy turkey back (I had walked to Trader Joe’s), I happened to look down at the grass sidewalk, as I waited to cross the street.  There, on the ground, was a wild turkey feather.

So while I didn’t get my white feather, I did get a whole turkey!  I think somehow someone up there knew I’d rather get this instead!

I brought the turkey to the family holiday party on New Year’s Day, and there was a lot of leftover turkey.  My mom magically made a soup out of part of the turkey that was awesome and delicious (I forgot the soup she packed for me though), and she has set aside some turkey for another dish later.

I am grateful for the free turkey and for my Mom for repurposing the leftovers into delicious dishes.
