(#10) Turkey Disaster To Turkey Prefection


The last piece of pie has been ate, the leftovers have been wrapped, and my brain is still in a turkey hangover. Yes everyone, Thanksgiving has now passed and I have to say it went off without an issue. Ok so I just lied to you. Here is the story.

Tuesday night I had to brine my turkey I made the brine and put the turkey in the brine bag and it looked like this-


Then I went to put the brine in the roasting pan and the bag busted and brine got all over my kitchen. So I spent two hours mopping brine off the floor. It was not the best night ever.

So that was my disaster for Thanksgiving. I then got up at 6:00 AM and finished preparing my turkey and started to cook it. Three hours later it looked like this-


Let me tell you that was the best turkey ever!!! I have to say I was worried but my first turkey was awesome.

I then started cooking all the other dishes and even had to have a few glasses of wine AKA holiday medicine. As you can see we had quite a spread.

The whole lunch went great. The food was amazing and everyone had a great time. I really enjoyed my first Thanksgiving hosting. Will I do it again? Oh hell yes!!!

  1. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving, even with the mishap.

    I hosted Thanksgiving, too (I loooove cooking, so yay!) and I had my own turkey mishap. My turkey was still frozen on Thanksgiving eve. So, the hubster pulled it out of the fridge and sat it in the not turned on oven for an hour or so just to help it along. Yeah, I know… not exactly safe food handling, but whatever. I forgot about it and preheated the oven to put my cheesecake in… and melted part (the end where it’s all gathered and tied off) of the turkey wrapper to the pan. Oops. Luckily, the turkey being frozen saved anything else from happening, and we still totally ate it… and it was amazing.
