Today’s Menu: Thanksgiving Day Dinner!

 

Thanksgiving Day Dinner 008
First a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It’s been a mostly cloudy day around here, high in the 50’s. The finger I had surgery on is looking good, go next week to have the stitches removed. Not a lot going on today. It was just me, Mom, and Dad for Thanksgiving Dinner with others stopping by later in the day and evening. Spent the day as Mom’s sous chef, she wanted to make dinner. For dinner tonight it’s Thanksgiving Dinner!

We got the Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Whole Turkey out of the freezer and into the oven today! Jennie – O sent me this 13 lb. Bird about a month ago and we’ve been waiting to break it out! Jennie sends me one every year for being a member of their Switch Club, so a big thank you again to Jennie – O Turkey!

 

 
It couldn’t be any easier to prepare the Turkey. It goes straight from the freezer into the oven. It comes in a Oven Ready Bag. Preheat the oven on 375°F. Just remove it from the outer package, but leaving it in the cooking bag. Make a few of slits in the bag, place in the roasting pan, and your set. Then roast the Turkey until a meat thermometer reaches 165°F. in the breast and 180°F. in the thigh, about 4 hours. Let it rest out of the oven for 15 minutes and then let the feast begin! The Turkey, as always, came out mouth-watering delicious! Fantastic flavor, moist, juicy, and it browns up perfectly in the heating bag. So thank you agin to Jennie – O for our free Turkey! Below is the rest of our Thanksgiving Menu, my Mom went over board again but she loves making Thanksgiving dinner. I kept an eye on the Bird and helped and Mom out. Enjoy everyone!
