A Turkey Tale 2012

For a couple of weeks, I went back and forth on if we were going to actually buy a turkey this year. At $6 per pound, it seemed like an unreasonable amount of money to spend on meat.

I went around the house making proclamations that we were going to eat a succulent chicken! (Clearly, I was just trying to convince myself.) During the week of Thanksgiving, I finally gave in. I just couldn’t do it.

I asked Hubs to call the export store in Kunming to see if they happened to have an extra turkey. They did. They gave us their bank account number and said they would put the turkey on the bus.

Huh?

Yep. They sent the bird four hours west via the bus.

We received the turkey the next day – before we even had a chance to deposit payment into their bank account.

Hubs rode his scooter to the bus station to pick it up.

The turkey came wrapped in… magazines.

Selah thought it was interesting.

There it was – in all its turkey wonder.

We’ve learned that a little turkey not only fits in our fridge, but also our oven. A small bird is a win/win situation.

Hub still has that turkey twinkle.

I’m so glad we could give our local friends a taste of an authentic American Thanksgiving.
