We've had this huge 12kg turkey in the freezer for too long. I kept wanting to cook it, but the timing never worked out...or it was summer!
Just remember, when your husband suggests "this is a great sale, should I just get the biggest one I can find" there is a limit to the size that is good. When your oven rack bows like that, probably not a good thing ....it just barely fit into the roasting pan.... phew!
I always cook our turkeys from frozen now. I don't think I'll ever go back. There are so many benefits and the only drawback I can find is that you can't stuff it. I'm not a huge stuffing lover so I don't really care.
So...yes... I've cooked a massive turkey. Which means massive amounts of leftovers. I've tracked down a bunch of recipes to use up the leftovers and I'll share them as I make them. It's the week of TURKEY!!!
Oh, and I had another class with the Yarn Harlot! Yes, I know, but don't be jealous :p She showed me how to do the lever knitting on dpn's and a bit on circs. I'm almost done my first sock. I'll post a picture.
Now back to that turkey! ...and the bread I'm baking so we can have hot turkey sandwiches. It's a new recipe called Amish White Bread. I'm still using Plan to Eat, so I'll post the recipe right from there :D
