A small Thanksgiving turkey.
Where can I get a 6-8 lb. turkey?
The smallest I have seen is 9.5 lbs at the Village Market in Roslindale.
I am going out looking today, but if anyone knows a good place to start...
If you don't find a whole small turkey, you might try a turkey breast which would be more readily available in a supermarket. Some of them may average the 6lb range, but of course then there would be no thighs, legs or wings if that's what your after!
Either way - have a good holiday - enjoy!
You could buy a small turkey breast and the legs seperately, that is if you want both white and dark meats.
Or you could do a plump roasting chicken...tends to be moister but it might be sacreligous on T-day. My very small family (mom, dad, me) used to do that when we were not hosting family from out of town.
Get a fresh capon at Mayflower Poultry in East Cambridge. Far better than a large chicken or small turkey. Closed Sundays.
