    My family usually requires at least a 15-20 lb turkey. Is that considered big? My mother likes the PC butter basted turkey. You should be able to get one at Loblaws or no frills. If you need a free range turkey you should proably order one from a butcher now.

      I find big turkeys (20 +) are easier to find then small turkeys. That said I'd still pre-order just to be sure. I've always gotten them from Whitehouse.

      Good cornbread rolls have got to be from a Portuguesse bakery in the west end. This is not American cornbread, but so good. I think it would almost make a better stuffing than traditional American cornbread. Hmmm, got me thinking.

          You can order a turkey at any butcher store. Most butcher stores take orders for fresh turkeys. Or you can order one from Longo's. I ordered a fresh turkey from Longo's last year for a group of twenty people and cooked it myself with homemade stuffing.
