Holy cow! That bird was HUGE! I can see why you have leftovers :)
That last pic is the money shot -- looks delicious. I was just starting to feel like I was done with turkey forever until I saw that one. Yum.
Great job, Liz! I knew you'd do it, no problem.I haven't made it yet, because we've spent all day canning apples, but I wanted to do a pasta casserole with turkey, broccoli and a cheese sauce. Miss Chef made pot pies at her folks' home where she spent the holiday, and a friend of mine recommended just heating it up w/bottled bbq sauce and serving up bbq sammidges. She said her kids loved it.So, not recipes, but some ideas. We don't often use actual recipes around here. ;)
So glad you had a good holiday and dinner turned out well. I've never seen anyone roast their turkey upside down before. Does your family have some secret recipe that calls for that? Or does it roast better that way? Just curious....
That's an attractive lookin' turkey!
