I've put a half pound in so far with the breads and dressing. Usually another half pound gets used up with the mashed potatatoe, vegies, basting the turkey and so on. So 1 pound for my family. Well, more, because I'm not counting the pie crust that my wife takes care of. It might be closer to two pounds now that I think about it. I'm kind of afraid of how much Ed will mention after the last run down he gave for the Thanksgiving Day cooking he does at his job.
