Today’s Menu: Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Day Dinner 2014 007
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day. Well I’ve been taking care of my parents the last few days, both have the flu that’s been going around. Now, I have it! It was bound to happen and I rarely get the flu, but I have it now. All you can do is work through it! For Dinner Tonight, Thanksgiving Dinner.

Last month I had posted that Jennie -O had sent me a free 12 – 13 lb. Jennie – O Oven Ready Whole Turkey, and today we put that Bird to use! It goes straight from your freezer to the oven, no thawing needed! How easy is this! It comes sealed in a Fool Proof Cooking Bag. Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Just place it in a roasting pan, put 6 – 1/2″ slits in the top of the bag, and let that Bird Roast. Roast the turkey until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the breast reaches 170°F, it also has a Pop -Up Thermometer inserted in it. When it was done I let the Turkey rest for 15 minutes. What a Turkey! Seasoned perfectly, moist, and just bursting with flavor! Thanks again to Jennie – O Turkey!

For sides we used Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, Deviled Eggs, Baked Sweet Potatoes, home canned Green Beans, and I heated up some rolls for Mom and Dad. For dessert later Mom had baked an Apple Pie and also a Chocolate Pie, using Splenda Sugar. Again hope all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving, take care!
