My Turkey Deal!

I forgot to mention in my Thanksgiving post how the Lord provided a BUNCH of meat for us for hardly anything. One of the two grocery stores in town has a promotional where you spend a certain amount you get reduced price or free turkeys. They punch your card throughout the month of Nov. You need to spend $400 to get a free turkey. That seems unreal for me because of the fact that I only shop sales at that store since it's more expensive than driving to another town to shop cheaper stores. But, the good news is my mom spent a ton on holiday groceries and gave me her card to combine with mine. I took them in and instead of getting one free one and paying some on the other one, I took both at the reduced prices and was able to use a $1 off coupon on each that was in the weekly sale flyer. So, I got a grand total of 20# of turkey (2 turkeys) for $2.64! I gave my mom one, of course, in thanks for her card. I'm so excited that I can freeze all that meat for turkey enchiladas/turkey soup, etc. Need a great recipe for getting rid of turkey?

My Mom's Turkey Enchiladas:

10-20 small corn tortillas
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups chopped turkey (or 2 cans chunk chicken or diced, cooked chicken breasts)
1 can of mild chilis (use hot if you like)
1 8 oz. carton of sour cream
Onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper
Cheddar cheese

Dip corn shells in hot oil for 3 or 4 seconds until soft. Drain on paper towels. Mix the remaining ingredients together in a bowl, seasoning to preference. Spoon filling into each tortilla and roll up and stick in a 9X13 pan. Spoon any extra filling over the top of the enchiladas and top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Yummy!

This has nothing to do with a Turkey:) but I had a question for you. I noticed your comment on moneysavingmom about the walgreens pictures. What do you mean you used photo impression to put your name on the pics? How do I do that? I think that was a great idea and would love to copy you:)

Also, I didn't even go into Target when I was black friday shopping or I would have gotten you the watch, I'm glad you still got it!

Photoimpression is a little program that came with our computer when we bought it a few years ago. If you open your pics with Photo Impression you can enhance them or change them to black and white, add text, etc. If you don't have a similar program you might be able to download one for free. If you have a digital cam, odds are the discs that came with it contain SOMETHING you could use to do a similar thing. I'll e-mail you the Christmas photo so you can see it if you send me your e-mail address.

this is just too funny to me; leftover turkey in the freezer.

By Friday night, every bit of our TWENTY-TWO pound turkey was gone (along with the rest of the leftovers!) with the exception of 3 servings of homemade turkey-noodle soup saved out for lunches for my husband & 2 college kids.
Incidently, it was just us, no guests.
Golly, we're pigs!!!

Congrats on such a great deal! and I really am glad you have those nice leftovers. Really. Jealous, but glad :-)
