Up until last Thanksgiving, I had never cooked a turkey. Up until last year, I had never even cooked a Thanksgiving meal. I had so many reasons why- it’s too hard, it takes too much time, I don’t like touching raw poultry- my mom always does it for me…. you get the idea.
But last year, I decided to tackle the task of cooking my own Thanksgiving turkey. I had decided that I would plan for a trial run before Thanksgiving, so I started the process at the beginning of November.
Cooking a Thanksgiving Turkey For The First Time
I got online and picked out a huge turkey. I figured if I was going to cook a turkey for the first time, I was going to go big or go home.
A few days later, I had a 25 lb bird, frozen solid, delivered to my house via Fed Ex. I opened it- and it came with instructions on how to prepare and cook the turkey. Easy peasy.
Instruction #1 read “thaw the turkey for up to one week before cooking.”
What? It didn’t even fit in my refrigerator! There was no way I was going to give up already, so I dutifully cleared out space in my fridge for the turkey and waited.
Once the turkey had defrosted, I googled “how to cook a turkey.” By this time, I had clearly already forgotten about the instructions that came with the bird, and I went down a rabbit hole to turkey cooking research.
Turns out, everyone and their mother has a very strong opinion on how to cook a turkey, and no one agrees.
I finally remembered the instructions that came with the turkey, dug them out, and cooked the turkey accordingly.
The turkey turned out amazingly well- it was delicious, juicy, with a nice brown breast (my friends told me so!)- and I hadn’t even thought about all the sides that had to go along with the Thanksgiving meal.
What To Do With Turkey Leftovers?
Plus- after one round of turkey, no one in my house wanted to eat it again. I tried hiding turkey in a myriad of recipes- turkey chili, turkey enchiladas, turkey sandwiches, turkey mac and cheese… no one was fooled. Needless to say, before Thanksgiving 2017 even started, everyone at Casa Pura Vida was sick of turkey.
So this year, I decided there has to be a better way. I want to have a delicious Thanksgiving meal that also allows me a reasonable number of leftovers, and a lot less work. Because let’s face it- I want to enjoy Thanksgiving with my kids this year.

Plus- guess what? It only cost $119! That’s only about $12.50 a person and there were leftovers!
Everything came frozen, so I just defrosted in my fridge for about 48 hours before I heated everything up and served it. The whole process after defrosting only took about 2.5 hours.
And the meal was delicious! I especially loved the spinach artichoke dip, and my kids went crazy over the pumpkin pie and dinner rolls. My husband loved the mashed potatoes, and the leftovers reheated really well. I’d order it again for sure- just make sure you order before November 18th.
