Kroger has turkeys for 57 cents per lb, with a $25 food purchase; and they were at 79 cents before that with no required purchase; so it would appear that (at least here) they are the same price as last year. Sweet potatoes are 39 cents a lb, which is a good buy, the are usually close to $1 per lb. Since we have the cold spell coming in either tonight or tomorrow, I am going to get the frozen turkey on Sunday, and then we will just leave it in the car where it will slowly thaw out, and should be ready to prepare by Wednesday night. We are not going anywhere, and will just have a casual meal here at home. Bobby usually likes to watch the parades on television, or whatever special entertainment that they have for the holiday. As long as we have turkey, stuffing, and lots of cranberry sauce, then I am content without anything else, although we will probably have sweet potatoes and maybe even pie for dessert, since it is a festive day. PS @Ruby Begonia , that sounds like an awesome feast. If you post directions to your house, (and the weather is good) we might just all show up there for Thanksgiving !
