Turkey re-cap

Here is a little recap on our turkey....
Here is the turkey in our garden during his last week.

I brined the turkey last night in a maple/apple cider brine, stuffed it with herbs, apples and celery and rubbed it down with an herb rub

The finished product. It tasted very good. Between the brine and my constant basting it was nice and moist. I saved the bones in two seperate zip lock bags and put them in the freezer so we will have a couple of soups.

We had dinner at our friends Lisa & Gloria's house tonight. We also had ham and some yummy side dishes. Christian ate bread, green beans (under duress) and apples for dinner. Liam enjoyed grazing the snack table all night and ate about a pound of carrots and olives and he was very fond of the green beans. Early in the meal when he wanted seconds, he asked us for more worms.
