Music to My Ears

Just got this email from my awesome new sister-in-law, who'll be visiting us over Thanksgiving break. Is she a sweetheart or what?! And yay, to real T-day feasting! Last year we hit up Kansas for their version, which wasn't bad considering, but still, it ain't no Nannette cooking! Tryptophan heaven, yo vengo...
Well I was just thinking about Thanksgiving dinner and I have a few questions. First, will we be able to get a nice fresh turkey? Second, do they have Stouffers stuffing? Third, do you have a pan to bake a turkey in? Just wondering. I would love to stay home that day and the night before and make some of my favorite foods. Pumpkin pie with whipped cream, egg noodle with turkey gravy stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, all that good stuff. Do you think I will have a problem finding some of the things I would need? If so, I will bring what I can on the plane.

thanks ms. tango! i've heard you can't get a fresh turkey only frozen, is that correct?

I don´t know about the turkeys, but you can find them...post a question on BA Newcomers group on Yahoo. There is a turkey question every year, or search the archives.

Mr. T, just informed me the brand to look for is SADIA pavita, pavita being the name for small turkey. Look for them at Coto or Disco. Frozen meat section I guess. Maybe you can order one at the local supermercado.

Also check into getting one done, we did this a few years ago, it is very good, not warm...but cooked by someone else and room temp. was good enough for us! Let me know and I can track down the place.
