Friday's Fling - Roasting Turkey

So I went for Thanksgiving dinner to Tucker's BFF's house. That of course, meant I was without leftovers, although they offered to send me home with some. Anyway, I decided to check out the grocery stores for turkey sales and got an 11.5 lb. bird for $12.00. It took 3 hours to cook according to the package, though I tend to think it would have been better after only 2.5 hours...not that it was bad...or even dry. It was just a tad not juicy enough. Anyway, I had half a baked potato and half an acorn squash with crazins and brown sugar. Oh, and I had a glass of that Fox Brook Chardonnay with it. Afterwards it was left over pumpkin pie with tons of whipped cream. Yum! Hope ya'll had a good Thanksgiving!

I had a grilled cheese sandwich!

Citizen...it was pretty good. The acorn squash was the best part. The turkey was okay, but being less than juicy means the leftovers are only good for soup and casseroles...lol

Lost...if I had stuck to grilled cheese I wouldn't have moved my upper rack higher and if I hadn't moved the rack up I wouldn't have burned my thumb the next day trying to broil something...sigh...

Ya! I overdid my turkey a tad last year but this did just the minimum prescribed time and it was very good.

Excellent price on a turkey!

Mom said 23 lb-ers were going for $70 in Canada. WHAT??!?!

Jannie...for THAT price I would have had a couple of beef roasts instead!
