Not Thanksgiving Dinner
I went to the grocery store on Monday, and on a whim I wanted to get some turkey and have a nice turkey dinner. I was thinking of getting a turkey breast, but all I could find was a honey brine turkey breast for $20. As I looked, I found a 12 lb whole fresh turkey for $15. It just seemed silly to buy the breast for more than a whole turkey would cost. That’s when it dawned upon me. So what if it’s not Thanksgiving or Christmas? That doesn’t preclude us from having a lovely turkey dinner with all the fixings.
As a result, tonight we had a NOT THANKSGIVING DINNER. During dinner we went around the table to say what we are NOT thankful for.
Chris was not thankful that he has to work tomorrow. Megan was not thankful that she had to go to school tomorrow. I was not thankful that I had to clean up after the NOT THANKSGIVING DINNER. If we are going to be silly, we might as well be as silly as possible, right?
As you can see, the turkey turned out to be delish! Chris used an Oven Bag and it only took two hours to cook the whole thing. It was so juicy and tender. If you have not had a chance to use these bags, try them out. They are well worth it and very easy!
Meg loved the turkey and mashed potatoes…
I’m so glad we had this dinner, and now I’m looking forward to turkey, cranberry and cheese sandwiches!
