My very first turkey!
So, I cooked my very first turkey on Sunday. My very first. I'm thirty forty some odd years old, and I have NEVER cooked a turkey before. Kinda crazy, huh? We always go to my mom's house for Thanksgiving, and she is superwoman, and cooks every year. She always cooks a fabulous spread and does it all herself. Hard to live up to that!
Carl got a turkey Christmas bonus this year, and with college boy home for the holidays on Friday night, I decided to have my whole family up for dinner on Sunday and cook my very first turkey. What? Invite the fam over for my first try at a turkey? Yup, crazy. BUT, it was fine. Really easier than I expected. I'm not sure how it tasted, but hey…..I cooked it right?!?!?!? And with all the drama of the flood and the house being torn up…..it was a nice diversion. I think I may cook one again soon…..well, maybe next year when Carl gets his turkey bonus ;)
