Christmas Turkey

... uh huh... and you heat the left-over veggies with some flour... and water...

And some cranberry jelly... hmmm... don't have that... will try plum chutney instead...

And then heat... very good... Thanks Jamie Oliver!!

Oh, hullo!! We are cooking the Christmas turkey! Well... a few days ago we did. It is a "happy" turkey, raised up in the Comox Valley... We are going to make gravy differently this year (not from a packet). So we have the turkey resting on veggies...

And we stuffing ready to go in as well... later.

Anyhow... while the turkey is cooking... here is me in front of the tree!

With a decoration that Buttons the Bear gave me a few years ago... it is beary pretty.

Then the turkey comes out... and it gets basted...

Basting is beary important...

We also have roast potatoes ready to go in later...

While the turkey was cooking... it snowed a little bit!

But that's OK... cause we have a nice, cozy fire inside.

And the turkey is done!!

Now to make the gravy a la Jamie Oliver... mash up the veggies that were under the turkey, add some flour and water and cook for about half an hour...

Then sieve the mess...

Oh wow... that is a beary thick, delicious looking gravy!

While all that was going on... the turkey was resting under foil and tea-towels... it's hard work being a turkey you know.

I think I need a little something...

A Dark Matter drink... mmmm...

The turkey cut super easy... maybe cause it was well rested??

Grampa gave his thumbs-up to this turkey... it tasted like something!

It sure looks good...

Oh... I forgot... drool alert! Sorry... this blog post is being cut off!
