I am going to do a pre-Thanksgiving dinner on the Tuesday before T-day. I am working long days thru that Saturday, so I need to buy a fresh turkey, preferably brined, on Sunday. Any suggestions where to go? Draegars, Whole Foods, Safeway....does it really matter? All are convenient to me. Does Costco sell fresh turkeys? Do I have to order ahead of time?
I don't need a huge one, will probably have no more than 7 pp total including myself. My guests are all going to (or hosting) their own dinner on T-day and I don't need alot of left-overs. I'll be an empty-nester T-day morning when my son leaves for 8 months (hence the desire to have a turkey dinner for him).
I should add that I haven't cooked a turkey in at least 15 years or so, but think I can pull it off. I'll probably make everything except the pie. I hear Costco sells a good one.
