I am baking a turkey for dinner. Its a lot of work. Do you think that. accounting for the amount of work and the weight of the bones and stuff, that it is a better deal to buy a turkey at a dollar a pound than to buy, say, boneless skinless meats that are more expensive? some of them, on sale, can be less then three dollars a pound. Is it more responsible to buy the whole turkey, considering that there is a lot of waste that goes into packaging the prepared meats? There is less packaging, too.Maybe I should spend a little more and buy fair trade, local farm raised meats and produce. We try to do that some, but its expensive. It may seem trivial, but I think about it all when I am shopping and trying to decide where to put our money.
