I was going to post my day in Tweets, but last night I found out that I won Pioneer Woman’s giveaway for a turkey set!
I have never made a turkey before, let alone been in charge of the Thanksgiving turkey. Now I don’t have any excuses because I have this:
The fact that Jonathan’s family is Chinese works greatly in my favor because they don’t quite know what to expect with a Thanksgiving bird. Their taste buds aren’t biased and expectant of an herb-buttered golden moist bird.
Which brings me to the point of how to make the Thanksgiving turkey. The internet is SO divided on this topic. Some are briners, some are basters, some use fresh fowl, some use frozen, some use herbs, some use citrus…there is just no way of knowing what is the best.
Here are some recipes I found that intrigued me (click on the photo for the original recipe and photo source):
Needless to say, my mind is spinning with ideas.
What recipe do you use for your turkey? Are you a traditional bird person or do you like funky twists on an old fave?
