Thanksgiving Day: 1:21 PM

And the turkey is in the oven!

(and the camera batteries are in the charger!)

We’re really hoping we’re doing all of this right. I mean, there isn’t any complete tutorial that I’ve found (with photos!) of how to prepare a turkey for roasting… I’m reading stuff about tucking the wings somehow under somewhere and wha? Oh well. Tie them with a string and hope it all comes out for the best.

Liquid in the pan? No liquid? What temperature? Foil tent? How long? I sure hope our meat thermometer is accurate…

You never really appreciate the value of a quality roasted turkey until you try to do it yourself!

  1. Atleast you did not cook your first ever turkey with the bag of giblets inside like I did many years ago only to discover the bag while carving! PS: no one got sick!
