Can't Get Any Fresher or Cheaper Than This

November 18th, 2007 at 02:49 pm

DH went to his friend's property and shot two wild turkeys. The neighbors were hoping he'd kill more because they are completely overrun with them. The turkeys poop all over their homes, chase their little dogs and eat all the dog food, and make an early morning racket, not allowing people to sleep. So I guess we'll be having our fill of turkey meals for a while.

Our income has been steady lately and above what we made year-to-date last year. We have no medical bills due and finally got all our needed dental work done, costing about $2,000. Now I am finally going to make an appointment for our 17yo to get the braces he's needed.

I just finished reading Lou's On First, a biography of Lou Costello written by his daughter. I've always loved the Abbott & Costello movies, so this was very interesting reading for me. A big part of the book was about how he went from no money, to being rich, and then losing all or most of it. Same thing happened to Bud Abbott. The book is a good manual for demonstrating what NOT to do with money.

    You'll have to let us know how it tastes-- I've heard wild turkey tastes quite different.

    I didn't have any, but the rest of the family thought it tasted good and didn't think it tasted very different. DH deep fried the whole turkey in peanut oil, which I thought was very strange, but his friend (a chef) recommended cooking the wild turkey that way and loaned us his deep fryer. The large bottle of peanut oil was pricy, so it wasn't exactly the free meal I thought we were going to get. Oh well.

    I didn't know this before, but DH had also injected the turkey with a solution of melted butter and garlic.

    He gave some of the meat to the neighbor, and he gobbled (oooh, a pun) it right up.
