Free Turkey

As I am sure many Americans have done since moving to CH, I bought at 10.5 Kilo Turkey for Thanksgiving only to discover that it does not fit in my oven. I have made room in my freezer but I hate to think of it going to waste. (I am a vegetarian and none of my guests would take the extra turkey.) Would anyone be interested in it? Pick up in Zurich Kreis 1. Thanks!

Hmm... I think we can probably excuse you this time for not actively searching the english forum for free turkeys at 00:30 at night.

But don't do it again!

I suppose the turkey might fit in our oven, but we learned recently that our trusty old roasting pan does not (about 1cm too wide).

Well probably not the first member to have gone online looking for a fat bird to stuff at midnight so they're probably not alone.

Re: Free Turkey

Can't you just cut it down the middle and freeze half?

(genuine question)

Re: Free Turkey

I feel for you though I don't fully understand why you, as a vegetarian, bought a turkey in the first place

The biggest turkey I ever had to fit into my (Swiss size) oven weighed 11kg... I had to kick that bird to get it in It turned out yummy all the same.

I think M. Ploymi's idea is pretty good

Re: Free Turkey

It's exactly what I was thinking: a vegetarian buying a turkey??!!
We were invited to a friend's house for dinner, they are muslim, they don't drink wine, and they didn't have any which I respect although with the very good meal she cooked a glass of wine would have been welcomed!

For traditional occasions, some principles have to temporarily go out the window (unless one is a vegan).

A Thanksgiving nut roast doesn't quite cut it.

Re: Free Turkey

Okay, I get that. Especially as I think that the turkey is the only animal that is so freaking ugly that it actually deserves to be eaten

No, but the OP's post was, hence the reply to yours, that you would be forgiven for not looking for a turkey at midnight....as in its not normal practice to look for a bird at midnight.........never mind

This is the first time I have seen people compete on who's bird is bigger than the others.

OP does not eat meat. I presume, not even if it's divided up into smaller meals...
