Or: I still learn something new every day.
Yesterday went as planned, we had a delicious meal, everyone seemed happy to be there and together.
I planned to cook two turkeys and I did. The first one went like clockwork, in the oven at 4:30 am, out a little after 8.
The second one was still frozen solid! Both had been in the fridge since Friday. I guess I should have checked them the night before.
A quick check of the internet said it was OK to cook, just would take a lot longer, which it did. All day. Didn’t come out until after everyone had left!
So, we have leftovers!
But truthfully, it was better than the first, so tender it almost fell off the bones. Maybe next year I will get one large turkey instead of 2 small ones, and cook it from frozen… but maybe not, too.
And the first turkey provided plenty for the meal and some leftovers to send home with the family, too. Just not as much going out the door as we had hoped.
