You really have no idea how proud I was making that turkey. I popped it in my oven, set at 325, and let it cook for an hour to get golden. During this time I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which was a tradition I've had with my mother since time began. Also, because my mother was having a bit of separation anxiety (they're in Texas and I'm now in Illinois), we spent about a half hour or so on Skype. It was fun...sort of like spending Thanksgiving morning together. After an hour, I pulled this out of the oven for basting.
IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Partner called it 'Incredible' and he never compliments my food. We put it all on the table and ate!
My plate looked like this.
Today is black friday, and I'm resting up for the ridiculous dinner shift I'll be working. It usually takes me 15-20 minutes to get to work, but I'll leave a bit earlier just in case. I hope your Thanksgiving was just as wonderful as mine was. Now, though, I'm about to head into the kitchen and pick at the leftovers.
Love and Lyte,
