I just wanted everyone to know that I’m freaking out a little on the inside about Thanksgiving this year (which we are celebrating on Fri. instead of Thurs… we don’t have Thurs. off here)
This is my 1st time EVER hosting and cooking Thanksgiving dinner, and I’m nervous. Add to that my turkey-experience today, and I’m almost at full-blown freak-out mode.
We bought our turkey at the shuk (Israeli market), which does not normally sell whole turkey, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out we were able to get it.
The good news is that they DID de-feather and be-head him….the bad news is they did NOT do a good job. After my bloody bus ride home, lugging him with me across the city, and leaving a blood trail on the floor, I put him in the sink to wash him off. This is when I noticed that the neck was indeed included in the deal (stuffed inside) and there were remnants of feathers all over.
AHHHH! Let the freak-out begin. My first Thanksgiving cooking, and I have to begin by pulling out feather pieces. I will update you with pictures and details on how it went…. until then
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
