What are they putting in turkeys these days. My local grocery store was practically giving away Brand Name turkeys to it's regular customers this year. So, I decided to get into the holiday spirit this Thanksgiving by baking a turkey. I am actually a pretty descent cook when I want to be. After all I was trained to be a cook in the army, but never took it very serious.
I was expecting to have my kids over that week but then there mother got confused, they didn't make it over. I ended up making turkey for myself.
It turned out perfect, Juicy, flavorfull, with a slightly crispy skin. Just the way I like it.
I had my fill and was thinking of how I would go about freezing it for later.
However, I kept thinking there's been a strange but familiar smell, or taste or something. It was just slight enough that I couldn't put a finger on it.
I went to work and had my usual work lunch. When I got back home I had some turkey. Now there's that smell again except it seems to permeate my whole being. I realized it's that same taste I get when I rarely get an antibiotic. I don't know it this is really what I was smelling/tasting but I am sure it was. I can't imagine what else it could have been. The thought of it grossed me out enough that I had to throw away the whole bird. After about three days, I couldn't smell/taste it anymore. That is the last time I make turkey.
