Halve a Turkey for Later

I realize that prices in everything have gone through the roof but if you can buy an additional turkey while prices are relatively reduced for the upcoming Thanksgiving, it will be to your advantage later on. Have the butcher cut your turkey in half (lengthwise) and when you get it home wrap each half in freezer paper and you will have the beginnings of two meals in case the weather gets bad and you can't get out to shop. Mix up your favorite stuffing, pop it in the oven and enjoy another feast. Happy eating!

Quite often we used to take the frozen turkey to the butcher section of the supermarket to be cut in half with their power saw. Several years ago we asked the butcher to do this and he said no. Store policy had changed because of cross contamination to other foods because of it being poultry. The cleaning process for the saw would be too intensive. Fresh turkeys are easy to do by yourself with a good sharp knife.
