I am still enjoying all the pleasures of our leftovers, including this simple soup, another one with pasta, spinach, thyme, roasted turkey and turkey stock, and chickpeas . The soup pot is always going, nice to share with family and friends ~
My camera got so excited by our dinner it went on the blink, but a replacement is winging its way to me.......hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And now I hear *snow* is on the way!
Here is Mr. Turkey just before going into a 340F oven: I stuffed him with celery, leeks, rosemary, half a lemon, and lots of thyme then dipped two pieces of cheesecloth into a melted butter/olive oil mixture, and covered him up carefully, basting several times during the 4 hours roasting. I'm not sure what his weight was - I threw away the wrapper the night before when I washed him and stuck him into the fridge. I tried weighing him on my scale, but it said he was either 12 pounds - or 16:) I learned this cheesecloth method from my Baltimore-born stepmother, and it results in a perfectly moist turkey. I tried a Jenny-O fresh turkey this year and was very happy with it. I would have loved a local turkey, but it was just too expensive for my budget.
And here is my daughter digging into the creamed onions! Boy, those went fast - I think I got one:)
