On Saturday I was deathly sick and I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to enjoy our early Thanksgiving on Sunday. But luckily I woke up yesterday morning vomit-free and feeling fine. The only negative thing about that morning was the hour... we had to get up super early to cook and clean!
Well, early for us... it was like ten o'clock.
Brian did most of the cooking, of course, and I lent a hand whenever possible. Mostly I set to work vacuuming floors, dusting shelves, and scrubbing toilets to get the apartment spic and span for our guests. Gotta' impress those in-laws, ya know.
But much more impressive than my janitorial skills, is Brian's culinary expertise. That's what really had his family blown away. Brian had prepared his famous garlic mashed potatoes, a green bean casserole, Yorkshire pudding, cranberry sauce, Tarte Tatin, and of course, a wonderful Thanksgiving turkey!
Doesn't that just look delicious? But just wait. There's more. When he cut into it his family was amazed to see...
... that the turkey had no bones! And it was completely filled with delicious homemade stuffing. Yep, Brian boned that turkey then stuffed it good!
And it was delicious. So delicious. In fact, I'm eating leftover turkey right now as I'm typing this blog post and I can tell you that it is so moist, so flavorful, and just sheer perfection. You should really try to bone your turkey as well! It's worth it!
