Since it's the "holiday season", consider this my anti-turkey manifesto. Not the country of Ottomans and old Constantinople, but the bird regularly slaughtered around these times for out of the ordinary consumption.
This is an animal who produces a very tough, dry meat. It is not easy to carve, carry or distribute and at the end of the day tastes far less savory than her cousin the good ol' chicken.
Even the next day sandwiches are more delicious with the chicken instead of turkey (my favorite would include a bit of Mayo and pickles).
So, why do we insist on eating the inferior meat? nobody has been able to present a rationale argument to me yet.Posted by Pedram at December 7, 2004 12:06 AM
