When I was out shopping for supplies to pack in the luggage I purchased can green beans, french-fried onions, cream of mushroom soup, stuffing mix, gravy packets (because I can't make gravy), etc - all the fixings for Thanksgiving dinner that we can't buy in Almaty. But what's Thanksgiving without turkey? So, when I saw that Target had turkey breasts on sale I succumbed once again to an "I will never..." Here's what I have with me for my flight to Almaty:
That's a 6 lb frozen solid turkey breast packed in a soft-sided lunch cooler (I have a frozen ice pack that goes on top.) I had intended it to be in my checked luggage but I packed for business class weight limits and forgot it is less in economy. So, the frozen turkey was a logical thing to move to my carry on. Nobody questioned me going through security about what was packed in there. I keep waiting for someone to track me down and arrest me for transporting frozen turkey over international borders. I only hope that it's frozen solid enough to make it 24 hours to Almaty and back into the freezer until we can enjoy it on Thanksgiving day!
