Fast forward to when we brought everything home and actually looked at the turkey, to find that it was actually a free range turkey and not the heritage turkey that I had been planning for months. This made the price and the unexpected plumpness of the turkey make sense. I called Central Market right away to find out how to swap it out and they graciously offered to bring the heritage turkey to my house since it was their mistake. I expected them to charge me the difference between the two birds and then take back the free range bird because, you see, the heritage bird actually *is* $6/lb.
So the dude came, handed me the bird, and was about to leave and said that we could keep the turkey because they had a bunch extra. So instead of charging us $62.30 for our 10.4 lb heritage turkey, they charged us $24.32 for both and now I have 22.62 lbs of amazing turkey in my fridge for the price of one large Butterball.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! :)
