What is it?

(If your first thought was the word "Clarice," you are twisted. You know who you are.)

Do you ever buy something at the grocery store that just seemed like a good idea? A Butterball "turkey roast" caught my eye a few months ago and made its way to my deep freeze. This morning I said to myself: "Self, today is the day to deal with that little turkey roast in the freezer." It seemed so easy. Toss it in a baking stone, throw it in the oven and set the oven to come on at 2:30 (that is the BEST feature of my kitchen!).

Fast forward to 5:21pm. As I tried to hack cut this alleged turkey roast apart, a strange deja vu feeling came across me. I've bought this thing before. Once when Hubby and I were starving college students. For under $5, it seemed like a lot of meat. We didn't like it. Now that we are no longer starving college students, why am I still trying to eat for under $5?

If you're the kind who can't help but look at accidents, here is the accompanying "gravy." Looks inviting, no?

The dogs are going to have a FEAST tomorrow! (No, they won't get it all; just the grisly dark stuff. I will salvage the white meat and make turkey taco soup.)

Meanwhile I think Subway has footlong subs on sale. For under $5. 5:30pm and we're outta here!

Blessings (and avoid the turkey roast),

Hmm, must be user error - I just did a web-search and people RAVE about the turkey roast! :) That said, I don't plan to head to the store for one of those morsels...
