A funny thing happened on the way to the turkey.

Funny how things change.

So, I just posted a big ol’ thing on this special turkey I was planning on serving for Thanksgiving. A turkey that’s currently in my freezer. A turkey I am suddenly thankful I haven’t started to thaw yet…

You see, right after posting that, my guest list doubled. Which isn’t hard to do. Originally my guest list was two people. Then one of them asked if she could bring two more who weren’t yet in a Thanksgiving celebration. I said yes, then contemplated how 8.43 lbs of turkey seems too little for 6 people.

I mean, it’s really not. It just means minimal leftovers, which is also okay, if not ideal.

Then, on Twitter, a Twitter-only (so far) friend who had agreed to be a delivery point for a local farm said someone backed out on three turkeys, and she needed someone to take them off her hands.

Problem (or “problem”) solved. So we’ll have a local farm-raised Broad Breasted White turkey for Thanksgiving. We’ll certainly be doing some sort of “Thanksgiving in X” later, as we now have a spare turkey. Well, two, as I had already planned to do “Thanksgiving in X” and ordered a larger bird from Caveny Farms to be picked up before Christmas.

Maybe I’ll just make turkey sometime. For the heck of it.

ETA: I don’t actually know that this is a Broad Breasted White, I realized. I just assumed. I’m going to go e-mail the farm and ask, because I’m curious. It is the most common, so I expect it is.
