    No "on" on any of those the way you wrote them - on vacation, but not "on last summer vacation."
    Unless you at the entire bird, you "had turkey" not "ate a turkey."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
