Happy Turkey Day everyone!
Christine here – as suggested by Judy, let’s try this “live-blogging” thing! Here’s a run down of some of the prep, cooking, and fun that’s going on in our houses today…
(Forgive the less-than-perfect photos, we’re going for quickness here!)
7:47 am- C: Woke up early and went down to the garage to flip the bird (haha). This year we were lucky to have an extra fridge (thanks Judy!) in the garage that we could use for the turkey and brine (all alone…). I like how this picture looks a bit omnious, hehehe.
9:07am- D: Wish I had a renovated kitchen!! My counter is under there somewhere… Not enough space!
10:04 am- C: Made some curry chicken salad for lunch, seems funny to be cooking something that won’t be used for Thanksgiving dinner whatsoever.
10:52 am- C: Started the cranberry sauce so that it has time to cool and gel before dinner tonight. Love how festive and bright cranberries look 🙂
11:00 am- C: Snapped a shot of Diana’s guava chiffon mini cupcakes fresh out of the oven, so cute!
12:15ish pm- C: Finished up the turkey stock for the gravy (ugh, blurry cell-phone pic!). In case you’re wondering, yes, that is a turkey neck!
12:51am- D: Christine is oiling down the bird and giving it a massage. Guess it runs in the family!
12:54am- D: Stopped for a lunch break. It’s nice having lil sis around. 🙂
12:58am- D: Aromatics getting stuffed into the bird.
1:06pm- D: Caped crusader? Breast plate of armor? Burn guard? Maybe all of the above? 🙂
1:07 pm- D: Note to selves: 25.68lbs is the capacity of this oven.
1:41pm- D: Bird is already browning… gotta put the cape on!!
