Yes, it is, and I did the same last night; made soup/stew. Biscuits sound great with it! The frying pan was fantastic to make it in, btw! It works so well!
Does Dh get the same breakfast meal as you do?
I think that's everyone's problem with ice box space before Thanksgiving!
One trick, if you have one somewhere, or want to buy a Styrofoam one at the store, is to put ice in an ice chest, and thaw your turkey in that. That will give you room in the 'fridge.
And, if it doesn't thaw in time, you can do what my mom used to when that happened to her sometimes...fill your sink with cold water, and plop in the turkey.
Okay, since I didn't have times, I went to the USDA site, and they say this about my mom's method:
"For the cold water method, leave the turkey in its original wrapping and submerge it in a sink (or container) full of cold water. It is important that the water be cold so that the turkey stays at a safe temperature. You should change the water every 30 minutes. Empty out the water and replace it with fresh cold water. With this method, allow 30 minutes of defrosting time per pound, so a 16 pound turkey will take 8 hours to thaw using this method (so you might need to start around 4 a.m. if you want to eat in the afternoon!). Once the turkey has thawed, cook it immediately."
