Economical Natural Meat

Here’s a great way to buy natural meat for less; shop for natural holiday meats the day after the holiday. Yes, while others are camping out to snag electronic door busters, I secretly plot my haul of naturally raised, cage free turkeys. Oh the excitement.

Actually, my mom scouted out and bought the turkeys for me on Black Friday, as I was in bed with a new baby (lucky me) and mom was visiting to take care of my other sweeties so I could stay in bed (lucky everyone else). I have to confess that I don’t exactly remember what she paid per pound (baby amnesia) but I’m thinking it was $.79 per pound for Albertsons wild brand. This fantastic price almost has me liking Albertsons. Almost.

At any rate, my little boys loved the crispy, salt and herb crusted skin. You can see them here peeking over the turkey… Mmm, finger liking good!

Turkeys have a LOT of meat. I just roasted this one, then boned the meat and froze it again to become soups or casseroles.
