One thing I love about blogging is looking back at my older posts and reflecting.
Being able to share what this day means with my Korea friends (and one Brit) was amazing.
This year I was able to spend the day with family and friends in my hometown.
The first stop was at my mothers job where she planned a dinner for all the nurses at her hospital.
She also gave me the task of cooking TWO turkeys.
1 for the house and the 2nd for her dinner.
I was a little nervous but I knew Chef John from Foodwishes had my back…again 🙂
The second stop was at my sisters’ friends house. We were super late for dinner and everyone was finished eating when we arrived. So this puts “C.P./Island time” to rest in my book 🙂
A picture story follows!
And so it begins with turkey number one!
|My weapons of mass destruction lol|
|Thyme, onions, celery and carrots !|
|Butter, sage, thyme, rosemary and 1 piece of lemon grass. That was my secret ingredient aside from Chef Johns suggestions. This was brushed on top of the turkey and the herbs were placed in the cavity.|
|Butter, chopped herbs with salt/pepper/paprika. This is the butter rub that went under the skin on top of the breast.|
