2012 YIR: November

I think for most people November is about holiday prep, football and ultimately turkey day. Since Margie wasn't going home for this holiday, I decided to make our own turkey. After all the googles, I found a recipe from the always fabulous Ina Garten. I choose her "Perfect Roast Turkey" recipe then modified it because I was lazy and I didn't want to do more shopping. You can find the original here.

The biggest change I made was using oranges instead lemons. The orange zest made this way yummiest tasting. I love lemons in all their tart glory but I'm kinda alone in this. Here is the turkey in all it's yummy glory.

Since it's Thanksgiving, it also means having all the sides because tradition. I made a cranberry sage dressing, sweet potato casserole and green bean casserole. Oh and mashed potatoes. All the bellies were happy for many days. The end. (Thank God! Goldilocks & the three bears is a myth.)
