Where are we today ?
More wonderful sunny weather with temps to about 70f we will take it. The cold nights are great for sleeping. First thing after all my computing and coffees head into Plattsville for a nice country drive, chat with the guys, then by the time I get back home about 9 am I can get to work doing a few things.
First project was to cook up our 15 lb Turkey for Monday dinner with my family. I like to precook it so we don't have to deal with that on the day, works wonderful. First of all I make a cradle with butcher twine to lift it out of the pan. I roast it upside down, with the breast on the bottom so it is always nice and moist.

|after two hours looks wonderful need 10 more degrees f.|
While we were puttering around the neighbors dropped by to meet us, check out our motorhome and we chatted for quite a while, very friendly people they are. They have three very nice Irish Setter show dogs. I didn't see them but Suzie sure did.
In the meantime I deboned the cooked turkey, and boiled up the carcass for a nice soup broth. I then refrigerate, the deboned turkey, drippings and soup broth. Tomorrow I skim the fat and carve the cold turkey, with the fat free drippings its ready to reheat on Monday like I have done for years. Even way back when in my restaurant. So moist and tasty and a lot less work on the day of. Want to spell turkey cooking? Thats what the big pot of turkey soup is for, plus everybody loves a bowl of turkey noodle soup (with gluten free noodles) especially the grandchildren.
|perfect sunny day and the leaves are changing colors|
|quick easy and tasty|
Thanks for stopping on by and hope you are enjoying this awesome fall weather too. Sure can't beat it for this time of year.
