pre turkey turkey

The small young bird that I am preparing this year (9 pounds) is now 'resting' with a liberal dose of rosemary butter massaged under the skin and a generous coating of spices and salts to 'tighten' up the skin before cooking. The butter nut squash is already roasted and waiting to be mixed with cream for soup tomorrow. The homemade fresh sausage for the stuffing is waiting in the fridge. The green beans are still in the package but they will get handled later. Mashed potatoes always happen in the last 20 minutes anyway and the pie came from the store. Gone are the days when I experiment, like that year I did a goose...whew what a bad idea.


more as it happens.

I have made goose before, and no one could have convinced me that much grease could be rendered out of any creature! Soup sounds good! Happy Thanksgiving!
