Found a turkey recipe online that I had used for the very first turkey I ever cooked, one Christmas back a long time ago.
My oven wasn't up to the task of cooking the turkey while having its door opened every fifteen minutes for the basting required by the recipe above, so dinner was VERY late. I had invited after-dinner guests, who had to wait while I fussed with the turkey, wait while the early guests ATE the turkey, and then got to witness my drunken boyfriend sit on the lighted Christmas tree, knocking it over.
Well, it was a memorable day at least.
And knowing what I now know about alcoholics, I should have moved out the next day. But that, as they say, is another story.....
