Remember that turkey in my freezer? The one that’s been frozen for almost a year. Finally, I made up my mind to try and roast it next week. NO, I’m not hosting any Thanksgiving dinner. At least not yet. I’m roasting it for just hubby and me and it won’t be roasted on Thanksgiving Day. I’m planning to make it on Monday.
I’m so ready to experiment. My meat thermometer is ready. I just couldn’t see myself taking a chance not to have this gadget and make a whole 12 lbs. turkey.
Now, what am I gonna do with that 12 lbs? Recipes for left-overs are also in place. Which means, we will be ingesting this turkey for the next 3 dinners after Monday’s dinner next week. Yahooo I’m all for this adventure. It’s my very first time to try to make one and for some reason I’m excited. Should this adventure be a success, I tell you, I will be ready to host that Thanksgiving Dinner in two years. I repeat IN TWO YEARS! And, I’m not disclosing for now the reasons behind the timing.
One thing’s for sure though, by then I will be ready to dish out made from scratch, turkey stuffing, sweet potatoes, turkey gravy and all the recipes that are part of the Thanksgiving fare. It’s that one day of the year, don’t you think your guests deserve to be served a dinner made in your kitchen because you love to have them around? And take out that fine china and silverware you’ve been keeping in the credenza. Aren’t your guests worth the effort? Oh, you might think I’m just old fashioned, but that’s just the way I am.
