It’s that time of the year again, Thanksgiving, heralding in the winter holidays. Here in the Hill Country of Central Texas, signs of the season are all around us, like an abundance of handsome wild turkeys.
Thanksgiving is a holiday that’s all about being with friends and family and enjoying one of the most delicious of traditional meals: Turkey and the trimmings. Fall and winter holidays are the only time we can find fresh turkey in our local grocery stores.
Did you know that a roast turkey breast has the most nutrition of any other part of the bird and that turkey has fewer calories than most all other meats? Turkey meat is very good for you, especially when it’s slow roasted in the oven or over one of our area’s traditional mesquite pits. A deep fried turkey, on the other hand, can be delicious but it definitely loses some health points.
There are numerous things you can do with leftover turkey meat. One of the easiest and most tasty reminder of the whole meal is a sandwich simply made from wholesome whole wheat bread, mayo, slices of turkey meat topped with cranberry sauce and fresh green leaf lettuce.
From all of us here at City Drug, we’re especially thankful for your continued business and good friendship. May your Thanksgiving be full of hugs and well-wishes from friends and family. Have a safe and happy holiday!
