Yea the traditional turkey is fine.
They say to stay away from antipasta like deli meats and cheeses. Things like that
No one with a clue says that. You are more likely to get listeria from a melon or lettuce.
And huge ::facepalm:: that someone would not know the difference.
I guess im clueless and youre a genius.
I was thinking about whats served at the thankgiving dinner i eat at my sister in laws house. Melon isnt part of my thankgiving dinner.
The original poster asked if the big real turkey you cook is like eating a cold cut. Its not. You can eat the turkey out of the oven.
If your family is serving deli turkey slices then i guess pop them in the microwave!!
My OB actually told me that I can eat deli meat. Im choosing not to really eat them too much i had one ham sandwich this monday. And for your info i soak my lettuce and other veggies or fruits in a apple cider vinager and water mix before i eat them.
We dont generally have a salad at thanksgiving. We have cold antipasto that consists of a lot of the italian deli meats that i feel are put out way before guests arrive followed by hot appetizers. Im avoiding those meats.
Thankgiving is different for everyone. I based my dumb answer on the thankgiving im use to. Sue me!
