If you have never touch a turkey, it's well.... gross. I found you can't really work with a turkey with out getting in there and touching it all over. I have decided that Steve can forever be in charge of the turkey. I don't like touching it.
However.... I did a do a pretty good job. I put it in a brine over night. And made a huge mess getting it out and getting it ready and stuff. I put onions, oranges, green peppers, garlic and lemon juice. Weird I know, but it was good.
Look how pretty.....
I thought I was doing so good ready to give myself a huge pat on the back when it was pointed out to me that I left the bag of giblets in. I pulled the neck out, and I knew there was suppose to be a heart and liver and stuff, I looked and looked but I didn't really know what I was looking for and totally missed it. I guess that's why they make the bag bake proof.
Along with the turkey I made some green beans. Just fresh green beans, I think green bean casserole is gross. (sorry to all who like it) And I made some mashed cauliflower. It was really good. I should have blended it to make it smoother, but other than that, it fooled all the kids who ate it like mashed potatoes. I also made a pumpkin pie. My neighbor made all the other fixings that come with Thanksgiving.
(I hope you can see it.)
