Turkey 2013 2.0

5:18 pm
23 hr and 42 minutes to go…..

The turkey seems to have thawed nicely in the two 30 minutes dunks in the sink and is now safely tucked away into the brine in the cooler.  We will be turning it every 30 minutes and covering it with ice pack to make sure the temperature stays safe.
The neck and other ‘bits’ are in a pot on the stove to make stock for tomorrow’s gravy.

The pumpkins are out of the over and cooling on the stove top – I think I’ll scoop them out when they cool enough to handle and beat in the cream cheese – it helps if the pumpkin melts it a little.

The pie crusts are on hold until DH returns with the white vinegar – who runs out of white vinegar (disaster #3 – hopefully all crappy things come in 3’s and we’re done).

…….. more later
