My house is filled with the smell of a roasting turkey. Yep … I’m cooking the first turkey of the new year.
Yeah … I’m cooking again! I cooked a turkey just before Christmas – on December 23rd – I called it my Festivus Turkey and now I guess this is my “after” New Year turkey.
The truth is … we actually enjoy eating turkey (I brined this one so it should be extremely moist) and I bought the turkey at a good price (15 pounder for about 12 bucks) and since my husband was on temporary lay off from work for the last two weeks of December we’re on a tight budget. Eating two turkeys for three or four weeks is fine with us if it saves us money … and hey … turkey is good for you, isn’t it?
Now if that darn new internal thermometer alarm would stop going off early I could get some work done. I’m trying to install an update for my scanner software but the thermometer that I put in the turkey leg keeps going off … even though the turkey hasn’t been in the oven long enough (well it probably has now, but when it was only in the oven for 30 minutes I new that was too soon!).
Do you ever eat turkey when it’s not a holiday meal? I mean like us – in January?
