Giving Thanks

Contemplating the Bird...

I looked it up from several sources and the consensus was to bake the 12 pound turkey at 375 for 31/2 to 4 hours , I put the bird int he oven at 11:30 and then the pop up plastic thing popped up at 2, huh! that can't be, I got out the meat thermometer and stabbed that bird right in its fat thigh.............175F it is done and only 11/2 hours early. I let the turkey stay in the oven for another 30 minutes because I didn't want it to get cold before 4 (4 being the time I planned on eating). Now the bird was an hour early and I still did not get a photo of it whole, what was I thinking and he was beautiful too. I do have this picture; however.

Rose from 64 sq ft kitchen brought beautiful bread and for dessert creme brulee. The Brulee was so rich and just wonderfully perfect.

And the best part was having old friends and new friends together for Thanksgiving, for that I am Thankful!

That's some very serious bird contemplations....
The 'spread' looks scrumptious!

It looks like a fabulous spread you had there for Thanksgiving. Just wondering what tool Rose is using to brown the creme brulee - I've never seen that before.

I have no idea what it is called. Rose got it good and hot on the stove and placed it in the sugar and it melted the sugar very nicely
