I don't usually blog on Sundays as you know, but I had to tell you that the turkey turned out beautifully. Brining it really made a difference. I have eaten brined meats before, but that was the first time I had actually done it and the meat was so moist and delicious. In case you wonder, it doesn't cause the meat to be salty, in fact I am not sure how it works really, but work it does. I had to go look it up, for what Wikipedia has to say click here to read all about it. In fact I didn't follow the rest of the recipe. I cooked it in a Reynolds roasting bag which I think is a great way to cook a turkey and leaves little or no mess. The cauliflower was good but it wasn't the best thing to have as the sauce mixed with the gravy. I had forgotten there was so much sauce with that recipe. The wine was good too. Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians. Have a great weekend.
