Week 46 Saturday (11/29/14)

Recipe Review          
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                  Pages:  248 - 249     Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins         OR

I figured out that there are 54 calories per serving, if a 1 oz. serving is made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

It looks so naked!

Golden brown and ready to carve

         This turkey was so moist it just oozed liquid. The meat was tender and wonderful. I did mess up a little, what a shock!  Because Ree cooks at two temperatures, I couldn’t follow the package directions about how long to cook it. I did look at the thermometer temperature, but maybe I didn’t have it far enough in the bird. Some of the pieces had a light pink tinge to them. After I cut up the entire bird, I put all pink pieces in foil and wrapped it up. I think it steamed the pink out of the pieces.
         I am so glad I learned how to do this holiday food. It wasn’t as hard as I thought, and the turkey was outstanding.

Random Reflections

         I love the Wizard of Oz. I was reading the Chicago Tribune yesterday and learned that the costume Bert Lahr wore as the Cowardly Lion was sold at auction. I was kinda grossed out when I read that the actual costume was made from a real lion hide. I hate to think that a lion lost is life for a movie. I am telling myself that it must have died of old age. I’m sure I’m delusional, but I’m happier believing that thought. That costume had to be so hot on the set with all of the lights. No wonder he constantly wiped his head with his tail. Just think……it only cost a collector $3.1 MILLION DOLLARS.  Are you kidding??? Think what we could do with that amount of money.
