I thought it would only be fitting that I start off the Countdown to Thanksgiving with a turkey recipe.
On Sundays, we have a family dinner with my mother-in-law. Last week, I found turkey breast on sale for 99 cents a pound so I picked up a 7 pound turkey breast. I then cooked it up for our family dinner. My family loved the turkey. In fact, a week later, my mother-in-law was still raving about the juiciness and tenderness of the turkey.
Do you want to know a little secret? I’m 40 years and had never roasted or baked a turkey before. My grandma would bake the turkey when I lived at home. Then when I got married, my father-in-law would bake the turkey. He’s been gone almost two years so my mother-in-law has taken over the turkey baking. I decided to try to “roast” one now.
As I share the Countdown to Thanksgiving, I’m going to share memories from Thanksgivings past.
20 years ago, I was participating in the Disney College Program. I lucked out that I was not scheduled to work during Thanksgiving weekend so I opted to make a Thanksgiving dinner. I made it on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Instead of turkey, I roasted/baked a chicken instead.
More on that Thanksgiving in later posts.
Somehow my pictures of the turkey breast were erased. Argh! Continue reading Makes It’s Own Gravy Turkey Breast and Easy Gravy
