Happy Thanksgiving

Day #26 of NaNoWriMo – Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving is here and my first meal was a success.  Minnesota crock pot cooking resulted in a 7 hour slow cooked turkey that was moist.  If you’re going to try this at home, then you may want to carefully take it out and crispy it in the oven.  Have your pan near because the meat tends to fall right off the bone.  I had my oven on 425 degrees and set for 15-20 minutes for a crispier skin.


Sides were honey glazed, baked yams, mashed potatoes, corn, and stuffing.  Did I spend hours in the kitchen?  No, I’ll admit it.  I cheated with canned yams and corn.  I find the yams are sweeter and need less of other ingredients from the can.  Someone could elevate the cooking by using raw ingredients for the vegetables but I wanted to save some time.
The results of this year tasted better than I expected.  I give Minnesota crock pot cooking the thumbs up.  


This afternoon, I’m back at my keyboard with the Christmas music playing and more holiday movies in the background.


Happy Turkey Day!
