Your sandwich looks great. There is a Mennonite grocery store in Crossville, TN that will make sandwiches for you on homemade bread that are so delicious. How neat that you have a butcher now, that sausage looks great. You'll have to let us know how it tastes.

Butchers' meats are the wonder of the ages compared to wrapped grocery store meats. The taste difference is night to day.

How is that ground turkey in a tube from aldi?

We like it just fine, been using it for years. It is extrudeded into the tube bwfore frozen, so it comes out as a chub of meat vs the long, fat spaghetti strings when ground meat is sold as fresh. I use it for meatballs, meatloaf, tacos, casseroles. I turned to ground poultry a few years back as either a 100% substitute or to use 50-50 with beef, which has gotten very expensive.I used to commonly find grnd poultry @ $1.49/lb-those days are gone. If I recall correctly, this costs $1.88/lb.
