Christian and I drove the turkey out to the butcher this morning. He weighed in at 8 pounds. We are not the kind of family that likes left over turkey for weeksa after Thanksgiving, so he was just the right size. We will also be able to cook him up pretty quickly. There were several other turkeys waiting to get butchered and they were HUGE. I don't even know if one of those would fit in my oven. I really wanted to get a picture of the turkey when he was all puffed up, but he did not want to cooperate and the ducks were trying to beat him up when I took this photo.
