Anywhere to buy Turkey still?

Missed the Easter Turkey

Missed the post Easter Turkey sales

Now I’m dying for a turkey dinner.

I don’t anticipate any sales left, but which stores will regularity carry turkey?

Hit 'n miss. Usually see turkey available all year where I am, just the amount available is low. I'd say you have a better chance at an independent or small chain is better than the large ones. The WM where I am doesn't even have a frozen meat section.

Availability will I suppose depend where you live, how big the store etc

Where we are, the national chains have Frozen Turkey year round now

And Fresh Turkey Parts ... be it Breast, Thighs, or Drumsticks in the Fresh Meat Section

The latter, may be all you need with Social Distancing ... as you cannot really have Guests over to celebrate with you

I was just at my local No Frills a couple hours ago and the big bunker freezer that was full of turkeys last week was still full of them tonight. I didn't check the prices though because the arrow on the floor was sending me the other way lol

I highly recommend the frozen PC Turkey with two stuffings. It's kind of a brown label/wrapping. There are probably still some in the freezer bunkers at RCSS and Independents?Loblaws.

One stuffing is sausage, one is bread. Both nicely seasoned, if you like a little sweeter bread stuffing, throw in a handful of raisins before reheating.

The one we had for Easter was so tender and flavourful!!!

Lol, when we have an occasion to enjoy Turkey
We too will cook the whole bird
Even though more often than not it’s just the 2 of us at Dinner
I call it a habit ... from the days when we had 3 kids
And their grandparents to feed

But truth be told, I don’t mind
Always good to have more than enough on a holiday
IN CASE someone unexpected should stop by ... or get invited

But ya ... the leftovers never go to waste
Cold Turkey Sandwiches with Salt, Pepper & Mayo (maybe a dash of Cranberry Sauce)
Next Night Traditional Hot Turkey Sandwiches sopping with Gravy
And by late on Day Two, we’ve already dragged out the Soup Pot, and begun chopping veggies for a big mess of Turkey Soup

NOTHING ever goes to waste

The Weston group are moving towards the Walmart model of same price between certain stated number of pounds. It looks like it's the only way they can make money on this item, outside of regular prices.
