Did you know that turkeys cost about half as much right after Thanksgiving?
Since we always travel on Thanksgiving, we never end up with any leftovers.
I don’t think I need to tell you how sad this is. I’m sure you understand.
So yesterday when I was out shopping I decided to buy a bird and the rest of what I needed to make a Thanksgiving feast. Today, besides going to play group in the morning, I spent my day cooking up a storm!
Jon gave me a few tips on the turkey, I cut some fresh sage from our ‘garden’ and I nearly killed myself by falling off a stool trying to pick the best looking oranges in our orange tree. Why are the good ones always up so high???
Since Jon has class tonight until 10pm, I’ve truly had all day to get this meal together. I’ll probably freeze some and the rest we will enjoy this week.
I have to admit, I am feeling pretty accomplished today. A couple years ago the thought of cooking almost ANYTHING stressed me out and today I cooked a turkey and a bunch of sides.
Now hurry up Jon and get home from class!
JON’S TURKEY TIPS:
-Make a mixture of butter and chopped up sage to stuff underneath the skin
-Stuff the inside of the bird with apples and oranges cut into halves
