Welcome to Thanksgiving week!
Turkey farmers everywhere celebrate this very American holiday, of course, but this year in Minnesota – after dealing with a devastating outbreak of avian flu last spring – our farmers are especially thankful for all of the support and outpouring of concern they have received from the general public.
It’s been over four months since the last case of highly-pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) hit Minnesota’s poultry farmers.
I'm excited to say that this week, the Women in Ag Fall Recipe Roundup features turkey, which is for a whole lot more than Thanksgiving! (Although we love our centerpiece of the holiday table, too.)
It's almost October, and my palate is suddenly craving hardy recipes and comfort food. My mom's Turkey a la King recipe fits this bill just about perfectly. I learned how to make this recipe in Mom's kitchen when I was a little girl, and I still love making it for my own family.
