Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away! While we are busy planning our menu, shopping for our groceries and preparing those delicious feasts for family and friends, Butterball can help. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is Turkey and Dressing. My husband and I cooked a turkey last year for our family and it took a little research for what type of turkey to buy, how many pounds, cooking times, etc. We're planning on doing the same this year and will be purchasing a big Butterball Turkey.
