Buying a turkey in Mexico

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

So I picked up a 24 pound turkey yesterday that was imported from North Carolina. Who wants to guess how much it cost??? It was over the top....around $70 US dollars. Just wondering.....what does a turkey cost in the states these days? Oh well, we are just so happy that we could order one and the casa will be warm and smelling good on turkey day. I will have to soak it in water tomorrow to get it thawed. We are having 8 people over and everyone is contributing something so it will be nice.

It was so nice yesterday eating at home and eating light after eating out 3 days in a row. I managed to get a pound off so I am right at goal weight of 110. So I have today and tomorrow to also eat light and see if I can get a little under weight so that I can enjoy a splurge on Thanksgiving.

Hope all my sparks buddies are doing great.
Have a terrific day.

    I'm not a big sweet eater wither but I love pumpkin pie. Costco makes a huge really good one for about $5.00. I may get one before Chritmas and take most of it to work. I've never had corn pudding, sounds good.

    Wow! Most grocery stores have great deals in the US, if you buy $50 worth of groceries you get a free turkey!

  In FL, turkeys are going for about 59 cents a lb for "generic" brands and Butterball is running from .99-1.39 a lb for frozen. Fresh turkeys seem to be a lot higher this year around 2.39 a lb.

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving with friends. Our local store Publix had a turkey for .39 a pound. I did not check them out as we are going to his Moms and by the time we are through with Christmas I will not want to see another turkey. WE usually cook one here for us about late May or June and smoke it on the grill. This is our favorite way.

  I'm glad you could get a turkey. It's a lot for a bird, but in my book it's money well spent. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Here in Brazil, I paid $6.00 (US dollars) per pound! That means your 24 lb. turkey would have cost $144.00 if you had bought it here! you have something else to be thankful for!

    Turkey cost 69 cents in Sacramento, Ca and a butterball is about $1.25. I just bought a turkey breast as it is only me and hubby eating. We talked it over and even a small turkey would just be to much.
I am like you eating light until turkey day. I am making for dinner tonight home made soup and salad.

    That's going to be a really special turkey! Enjoy every bite :)
I've seen frozen turkey at the Sams in Guaymas but didn't look at the price. We don't celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, so no need to get a turkey.
Have a wonderful time preparing and celebrating!

    You enjoy every bite of your turkey. The price is well worth it for all the enjoyment it will bring.
Turkeys are going for .70 to .99 cents a pound in Sacramento, Calif.
