Best Turkey Ever

[Today’s run: 3.5 miles]

My  wife had the turkey all prepped and in the oven when she left to meet her running group for a 13 mile run this morning.  I got myself going on the shed project.  I finally got the air conditioner hole cut and the AC unit installed.  That’s a load off my mind.

So the bird cooked in the oven for 2 hours totally unsupervised.  But he/she did a good job.  The skin was nicely brown.  I sprayed some cooking spray on some aluminum foil  and put it over the top and just let it roll.  About 10 I started peeling potatoes and got them boiling.  And I started boiling the giblets and neck.  By 10:30 the temperature popper on the bird had popped and I turned off the oven and just let it coast while I mashed the potatoes.  Around 11 I moved the bird out of the oven, draining off the liquid and wrapping it up, roaster and all,  in some aluminum insulating stuff.  Then I made the giblet gravy.  Soon after that the wife returned home and we got ourselves over to Starkville shortly after noon.

There we met with the inlaws and had a very tasty meal.  It was topped off with fresh apple pie ala mode.  Every hollow place in my body is stuffed with very good food.
