On Monday, I did my annual pilgrimage to the Maple Lawn Farms, about half way between Washington and Baltimore.  They have a whole lot of turkeys, and the bird I got had been, until Monday morning, running around the barnyard having a good old time.  I think that will make him taste really good t...
