What a full Thanksgiving weekend we had. A going away party on Friday, a small group Thanksgiving Saturday (picture above), and another Thanksgiving dinner at Dave’s coworkers home on Sunday. Thank goodness we had Monday off!
I thought I would share some of the food I cooked this weekend, including the 19lb turkey below. It was oiled on the outside, with rosemary tucked under the skin of the breasts and thighs. Inside was a homemade herb stuffing that was delicious. The recipe was from Canadian Living. It was pretty extensive (I made a chicken stock for the gravy which took 4hrs to simmer down), but it was worth the effort.
I also made an rum soaked apple rosemary pie from the Beekman 1802 cookbook. And I really nailed the crust this time. Another delicious dish.
I hope your Thanksgiving was just as good as ours, filled with people you love, and that you also squeezed in some rest. Time to start thinking about Christmas planning now…
