never judge dinner by it's picture.

We were very excited for dinner last night. Perfectly roasted slices of turkey breast in gravy, mashed potatoes with chives, sweet corn... mmmmm. The mashed potatoes were divine, the corn, perfection. We thought the turkey would be this:

What we got was this:


Ta-Da, faux-turkey! No individual slices of turkey breast in this package, no siree! This is what you get when you bake Grade Q-mushed-up-and-then-blended- to-make-sure-there-is-no-resemblance-whatsoever-in-consistency-to-meat "white turkey containing up to 23% of a solution of turkey broth, salt, sugar, sodium phosphates, and flavoring". Turkey flavoring, I'm sure. The gelatinous goo oozing across the *turkey* is the gravy. Yum and yum. Next time we'll shoot our own bird to make sure it's actually meat!
