I know, I know it’s been a long time. . .sorry for my absence I really will try and be good about blogging on a regular basis again. . .I know you’ve been missing hearing what I’ve been reading and what I’ve been drinking. . .rather than try and get you all caught up I’m just going to start here and move forward. . .
I successfully survived my first attempt at roasting a turkey. I have never been so nervous. I mentioned to my mom that I wanted to try roasting a turkey but not on Thanksgiving. I get an email from her a few minutes later that I am hosting Thanksgiving and I’m responsible for the turkey. . .what the. . .?????
As we got closer and closer to the big day, the number of people coming to my house kept growing and next thing I knew I was responsible for feeding turkey to 11 people. . .no pressure right? On Monday I went to the store and bought a 20 pound turkey at the suggestion of mom, yeap 20 pounds, it was one freakin’ huge bird!
Attempting to brine that monstrous sucker was no easy task. Let’s just say I’m not sure there is enough antibacterial cleanser in the world to rid my kitchen of all the ecoli growing in there thanks to all the brine and turkey juice that went all over. Anyone want to come over for dinner?
Luckily the turkey went off without a hitch and apparently I have a new job every Thanksgiving, lucky me!
Instead of getting right to the Christmas decorating on Friday I waited until today, but the tree is now up. Sparkling and glistening!
