AH! something I have a lot of experience in, talkin’ turkey! here we are again, headed towards Thanksgiving, many of you are probably starting to worry about your turkeys and the dried out blahness that could occur. I was actually lucky enough to be chosen to ask a question to the Butterball turkey team last year which was a lot of fun to record and of course get the answer.
Cooking a turkey is a lot like roasting a chicken but in a BIGger way. I’m actually confident on my turkey baking skills so I have no horror stories to relay, face it that’s what most people want to hear.
One year I did leave some innerds stuff in the turkey (eww gross) but my worst turkey story has got to be my first married Thanksgiving. I must also warn you that it’s pretty tame.
My hubby and I had spent two previous Thanksgivings together but it wasn’t until we were married, and living in our own home in Japan that I became responsible for actual cooking.
I’d seen my mother roast fowl a million times before so the cooking wasn’t a problem. I did learn, however, to be more discerning on the turkey I buy. By accident I bought a ‘young turkey’ breast instead of a whole turkey… no drumsticks! how could I serve my new husband a turkey without legs?!
Luckily he’s a breast man… My first turkey of the season is coming up Sunday!
