Coming Up To Christmas [Dec. 21st, 2010|04:21 pm]
Tony Grist
Whilst sweeping the snow off the car I got into a snowball fight with a couple of passing lads. The snow is powdery- and not so good for making snowballs with.  They scored a couple of hits. I scored one. 

Sainsbury's was full of shoppers. The prices they charge for turkey- just because it's Christmas and they can- are shocking. We bought a large chicken instead.  To be honest I think turkey is dull. And dry. Very dry.

There's still a remote chance that we'll be cooking our chicken in our spanking new oven (rather than our old portable one.) We tried the new oven for the first time last night and it blew the circuit twice. I've just had a call from Adnan to say the company that supplied it will be sending someone round on Thursday to see if it can be fixed.

A few years ago, our family decided to buy an organic turkey (meaning raised humanely, free-range, no icky hormones while being raised, no nasty additives after slaughter), and the difference is beyond belief. And luckily, over the years, the price has come down considerably.
We honestly find it is well worth the extra money, as there is more MEAT on them than on the non-organic. Two turkeys of the exact same weight, and the organic will have 2x the actual meat of the non-organic.

I'm all for ethically produced meat.

But given a choice between turkey and almost anything else I'd go for almost anything else every time.

I would have said the same thing until we tried the organic. It's amazing, how not-dry it is, and that there's actual flavor.

That's been my experience too. Unfortunately, we relocated to an area where we can't get organic turkey, and we've all but given up eating turkey anymore; the organic is just that much better. And here, turkey is just plain expensive, so we can get organic chicken for less per pound than non-organic turkey.

Well, I'm tempted. The local supermarket sells organic turkey. Maybe after Christmas...
