I bought my turkey yesterday - will cook it Tuesday once it's thawed

They were already on sale for 49 cents a pound so I went ahead and got it.

My operation is next Friday so I will not be attending the family Turkey Day. Usually I buy a turkey while they are on sale for the holiday and cook it a week or so after Turkey Day so my husband and I can have turkey for the year. This year, because I won't be able to do it close to Thanksgiving, I can get it done ahead of time and have my turkey dinner on T-Day on my own. My husband will drive the two hours to his family gathering and then two hours back so he can spend time with his family.

So the turkey is in the fridge, thawing out (they recommend 3-4 days). Heck I may wait until Wednesday to cook it, then we can cool it, carve it up, package batches for the freezer, and put the skin and carcass into the stock pot overnight for turkey stock to use to make dressing.

Yeah! Turkey!
