Turkey 2013 5.0

4 hours 45 minutes to go…….

The turkey just went up to my MIL house to roast.  Our oven is acting up and I really don’t want turkey problems.  I rinsed off the buttermilk brine, dryer her well, stuffed in a few lemons, oranges, onions and celery,  trussed the legs, rubbed a bit of leftover bacon grease from breakfast on her, added a little stock and butter to the roasting pan and sent her up over the hill with DH.

The apple pie is in the oven at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.  After that, I’ll lower the temperature to 350 degrees for another hour or until done.

  • 6 Granny Smith apples
  • 3/4 cup castor sugar
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 t chai tea spice

The kitchen is cleaned up and dishes done.  Time for a half hour rest.  After that I need to prep green beans, peel potatoes, make chocolate ganache with DS-14…..

……more soon
