Waste Not, Want Not

Despite the fact that we did not cook a Thanksgiving feast this year, we were the recipient of many bits of turkey. In fact, after dinner at The House on Thursday, our fairy godmother (the young woman who enlisted her caterer mother and a dozen family and friends to come cook dinner) sent home with us a bird that had not been entirely served because it was not done all the way through. It was a 27 pound bird when it started out.

There was some discussion today when The Spouse pulled it out of the fridge.

"We need to roast that off," I said.

"No, we don't," he said, picking off a piece of very pink meat.

"It's way too pink," I said.

"It's medium rare," he replied.

"You don't eat poultry medium rare!"

"Good point".

So he boned it out and roasted the pink meat and then took all the rest of the bird to make stock. He likes to use turkey stock for his enchilada sauce.

Not sure if we're going to have enough, though.

Yup, you need a bigger pot that's for sure!

Actually, Sling, that is the pot in which Himself makes beer. Except he doesn't really make beer anymore so, hey, use it for stock. Or elk.

Yeppers, Buck. (BTW, I totally knew you of all Blogtopians would say something about that).

Rosie, right?
