"Several years ago, someone mentioned to me that you can save money on lunches by cooking your own turkey to put in sandwiches. Since we are trying to eat better and save money, and I got sticker shock the last time I bought high quality deli meat, I thought I would try it. It came out great - I think this will become a regular thing. Even though the time from start to finish was a few hours, it doesn't require that much babysitting during the process, so you can do it while you are accomplishing other important things around the house, like catching up on Grey's Anatomy.

"Then I rinsed the turkey off, dried it and smeared some butter and herbs on it (Northwoods seasoning from Penzey's, which also has salt in it), and put it in the oven at 325 F until the little white thing popped up (1 1/2 hours for this particular turkey breast). Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
"It's even better than the fancy Whole Foods deli turkey and it's so much cheaper! Yay! :-)"
