The main dish! Never, have I ever cooked a turkey… until Thanksgiving 2018. Check that off the list thanks to Sara.
I was informed enough to read through the recipe information a couple of weeks in advance, so no frozen turkey on Thanksgiving morning for me. I let the bird thaw in the fridge for days.
Here it is covered in salt, wrapped in plastic, and ready to wait a few hours more.
Finally, cooking away in the oven.
And the finished product!
Not too bad. In fact, pretty good! I’m not sure what’s so intimidating about cooking a turkey. I just went step by step and came out with a pretty good try, especially for my first time.
After my husband carved it up!
Our finished Thanksgiving table. All five of Sara’s dishes are on here, plus a few more. Nothing fancy, but I was super pleased.
And here’s my little family all ready to eat!
