Here’s yesterday’s turkey a la Good Eats, a little while after coming out of the oven:
As in past years, we brined it overnight. Unlike past years, we didn’t have any of the plastic roasting bags, so instead we took advantage of the spiffy new roasting pan (a Christmas gift after the liquid turkey incident) and the convection roast setting on our oven. A 21-lb turkey cooked in 2hrs, and came out pretty darn tasty.
The rest of the menu: funeral potatoes (recipe here), steamed broccoli and green beans, and stuffing. The stuffing is probably my favorite part. How much do I like stuffing? I made a whole extra dish of it, that I didn’t even put out, so I would be sure to have plenty of leftovers.

And now, I need to go wrestle with video editing software, which should help me work up an appetite for turkey sandwiches. Mmmmm…. turkey….
