I know, I know, I have been absent for the last couple of months.I've been doing some soul searching on my next professional move, physically moving to a house down south of Boston and now moving heaven and earth to unpack with 3 kids under 6, under foot and prepare for the holidays! Lucky to have such problems though :)
We are traveling about an hour and 45 minutes north on Thanksgiving and I'm responsible for the turkey, gravy and stuffing. Luckily I have found my roasting pan and bought a large bucket to brine the turkey in. My husband's new company has a very nice perk. They give free farm fresh turkeys to each employee! When I get that turkey tomorrow I will butcher it and throw it in the brine overnight. Still haven't figured out if I should cook it at home and bring it up or cook it at the house we are going to. Nothing like the last minute. I am going to base my turkey preparation on Kate's Turkey recipe from Our Best Bites. The women over at Our Best Bites have amazing recipes. I have never made one I didn't like. Check it out. Here are a couple of my favorites that may help your thanksgiving meal:
