So, I’m a little late on this, but I just got the pictures from my little brother and I wanted to post them. This is the second time of done the turkey and I have to say that I think it looks pretty good. You have to love the Food Network and all of the helpful hints you can get from both the shows and the website: how long to cook the turkey, what kind of herbs to season it with, little tricks like putting butter under the skin (no low-fat holidays at our house). And, even better is that it tasted as good as it looked. Delicious…
There were just five us (and one was a baby) and we had more food than we ever could have eaten in one sitting (well, unless you include purging as an option, but bulimia just doesn’t sound like a very fun addition to Thanksgiving), but it sure was fun to see such a pretty table and enjoy such a good meal.
And just so none of you think that I am totally full of myself, the gravy was not my best work and I didn’t make quite enough of it, but the rest was great.
And after spending Christmas with my entire immediate family, I have a new appreciation for just a few of us getting together…which is another story for another day. But this little guy makes any holiday worth the price of family drama. I know I might be a little biased, but really you have to admit that he is adorable.
