Would it still be safe to make a soup today from Christmas turkey leftovers? (The meat has been stored in the fridge since Tuesday- the carcass was tossed out.)

I'm looking for a recipe for rolled / stuffed turkey breast that was published in (a Christmas edition of?) Australian Better Homes and Gardens magazine some time in the last few years (which I've since lost). Please hope me! [more inside]

I could have sworn that I read something by Jeffrey Steingarten in which he encourages his readers to cook a turkey roast made of turkey breast, herbs, and possibly other meats tied together with twine, instead of fussing with a full sized bird. It's not in The Man Who Ate Everything
, however. Does anyone remember this?
Or, could someone recommend an easy to make, impressive main dish for our Christmas dinner?

How can I get from Turkey to Israel via boat given the current open border crossings? Does anyone know of specific companies that make this trip? If it is not possible to go direct, can I go through Cyprus or Egypt?

I purchased a brightly-colored, embroidered tapestry from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. It is certainly not an antique, but it is hand-made, delicate and somewhat old. My well-intentioned (but perhaps lacking in common sense) roomate threw it into the washing machine and, needless to say, the colors ran. Is there any way I can restore the tapestry to its former state or at least to some approximation of such? Would a dry cleaner be able to help?

I cannot find a fresh Butterball Turkey - even called them, but this time of the year they only have frozen.
How can I make a regular turkey into a Butterball type turkey? I have heard that one can put butter under the skin, inject it, baste it etc.
Any proven method suggestions out there?

Turkish food filter: I believe it was called "muharama" or something close. It was spread on pita and had a lot of garlic and possible walnuts. I've tried many spelling combinations in google and found nothing. What is it and what's the recipe?

So I decided to be extremely corny and bring my American sister to Turkey for Thanksgiving (har har). We leave for Istanbul tonight and stay for about 3 days in Sultanahmet near the Blue Mosque. Any fantastic suggestions or must-sees? Thanks!

TurkeyFilter: Last night I tested this year's turkey recipe, and it was a failure. I usually make a maple syrup/butter/broth reduction and use that and cheesecloth to make a wonderful bird - 4 years running. This year, though, I have to make a kosher bird as the meal will be held at a kosher family member's residence. The olive oil-based recipe I tried left the skin dry and soggy at the same time - not an easy feat - and the bird was OK but not special. We've deep-fried before to great results, and I assume peanut oil is kosher; should I adjust for another type of non-butter fat (would margarine work? olive oil certainly didn't) or just bite the bullet and deep-fry?

Somewhere I saw advertised a metal rod that you stick into the cavity of a turkey to conduct heat into the stuffing to eliminate the bird/stuffing safe temperature conflict. Google fails me. Anyone know about this? Does it work? Where can I get one before Thursday? [more inside]

BBQFilter: I'm going to make some burgers tonight to throw on the BBQ, but every time I have done it in the past it has been a failure (either fall-apart burgers, or less than satisfactory in the taste department). I have googled, and tried many recipes, so that is where you wonderful people come in. What are your tried and tested burger recipes and tips? I have some ground beef for me and some ground turkey for the missus thawing as we speak... make my mouth water!
