Oven Roasted Turkey - What's for Dinner Moms

No, my calendar has not lost a few days.  We decided to celebrate with our traditional Thanksgiving dinner a bit ahead of time this year so that when Thanksgiving day rolls around we can spend the day together doing all the things we really are thankful for on that day.  We plan on reading, listening to music, playing games and having fun together as a family.  I will probably make 2-3 appetizers and maybe a casserole but nothing too fancy or time-consuming.  We want to truly enjoy our time together.

Do you have something that just signifies special meals to your family?  Maybe cherished heirloom dishes or a certain child’s craft that sits on the table, even though your child is now 35?  This is ours.  It is my mother’s relish plate.  This plate is older than I am.  They got it as a wedding gift 50 years ago.  It…

    Hello,koolaidmoms ! The turkey looks yummy. I hope we can cook something like that this year’s Thanksgiving. Our turkey has always been a FAIl, so much so that we’re opting out of turkey, and go for a big chiscken . I hope also that you can give us tips on how to make the turkey very juicy. Thanks.

      Two biggest tips are don’t over cook it. Get a meat thermometer and when it is within 5-10 degrees of the correct temperature remove it from the oven and cover it with foil. It will continue to cook even after you remove it from the oven. Also, baste your turkey several times while cooking. It will make the skin crispy and if it starts to get too brown cover with a lid on your roasting pan or aluminum foil. Hope it works!

        Thanks ! ! Baste it with butter, just like your roast chicken recipe ? We used your recipe the other way, and it was delicious. The skin was indeed crispy and savory.

          Exactly. Salt, pepper and butter baste about every 1/2 or so if a large turkey. Smaller maybe every 20 minutes.


  2. I like your idea it is very nice! Lovely Turkey!
