Money saving tip at the grocery store:

In this day and age of really expensive cold cuts, I have decided that the sliced turkey one gets at the deli counter for $6.99 a pound, just isn't worth it. Instead, I try to get a fresh turkey breast in the meat section of the deli, doctor it up with fresh herbs and spices, whatever you like, and then roast it in the morning before lunch. We get a good three days worth of meat out of it and then I can use the carcass to make broth from. Its a much more economical way to serve lunch. I just bought a 6 lb turkey brest for $1.49 a pound and it isn't processed, doesn't have as much water injected into it as the pressed turkey you get at the deli counter and it is much healthier for you.
