We had the Turkey Enchiladas last night (and pretty good they were too - you could hardly tell it was turkey) and Dij the Cat finished off the last of the meat with his lunch1

So a question: in the UK, pretty much the only time you see turkey on the menu is Christmas. Why? If it's that good - and it isn't, it's a fairly dull meat IMO - why don't we eat it every month?

And more importantly, why do people buy a bird so large they need a also buy a new cooker to fit it into, and end up seemingly eating the damn thing until Easter?2





1) With gusto, and every sign of real enjoyment. Mind you, this is a cat that eats mice, rats, dragonflies, and spiders ...

2) I buy a single smallish turkey breast and cook that in the sous vide - more than enough for two people.
