i decided to go small this year. this is happening at my home this year, so i am keeping stuff simple.
i am cooking a 13lb bird this year. traditional roasted bird. i did kick around the idea of doing it salvadorean style but nah..
my wife was bummed. she was wanting a big heavy beast of a bird. are smaller birds more tender? just wondering. it was amazing watching people dig for the 20 lb birds.
the rest of my meal. roasted green beans, mash potatoes, home made biscuits..and gallons of gravy. a simple turkey "blue plate" special..like you find at a diner. oh, i'll do a cranberry chutney or something.
and homemade pumpkin pie. so i can control the sugar content.
