Everyone, meet "Alishia"
The Zoop named her this morning, after we had our traditional turkey dance.
Alishia is damned near done, I think! :-)

lol @ bella - yes this was a big turkey! We were 16 for dinner, but 3 of those were my nephews, aged 15,14, and 12. They eat the equivalent of what 3 normal people eat.
All I have left over is enough to feed the 4 of us tonight.

Thanks JP, yeppers my Mommy and Dad, and husbands' Mom and Dad, brother & spouse and 2 kids and sister & spouse and 2 kids.

Always a blast!

I sent the carcas home with my Mom-in-law because I don't have time for soup making this week (bummer) and there is only enough left for hot turkey sammiches 2 nite! :-) Yummy!

Thanks AW, I love my kitchen too - it's my fav room in the house! I only wish it was about 1000 square feet bigger because everyone always gathers in here, and the rest of the house collects dust. Never fails, last night - 16 people here and everyone has to stand in my 20 square foot kitchen! :-) This bird took up 3 square feet all on her own! :-)
Oct 08 2007 15:43 GMT jenylew
Work? On a Stat? What do you do?

I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful thanksgiving, my friend! :-)

Thanks Jack. Weather here has done a complete 360 in the last 48 hours, I think mother nature finally checked her calendar here. Cold, rain, crap!

It makes me feel a little better, knowing at least you are happy with the weather! :-)

Hi "Alishia" !!

Happy thanksgiving, Jeny. :))

Thank you so much, sweet Poulet!

WOW nicely browned...looks delish...Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for your comments! I'd love to see this turkey dance you speak of...:))
Oct 08 2007 16:13 GMT jenylew
Heh heh, Peter!
It isn't pretty. It is just crazy me, with the bird in my arms, one wing in my hand, waltzing.

This one went from "Turkey in the Straw" to "Turkey in the Oven" and on to the table.
Quite the dance for this poor bird! It was delicious though.

Looks absolutely scrumptious!!!! A feast was had by all!!!

When I don't have time to properly make a turkey soup, I do find time to boil the carcass and freeze the broth. Then I wait for somebody to get a cold so I can take care of them (just telling 'em it's chicken soup for the placebo effect)...!

Say, I like that brickwork in your kitchen. It looks like there may be a huge tandoori or pizza oven just over there. Yum!

That thing is freakin huge!!!!

Damn that looks good.

Alishia looks delish....hope she was. :-) And a happy belated thanksgiving. (I always forget that Canada's Turkey-day is so long before ours.)

Is the turkey dance anything like the chickens/turkeys dancing in Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" video? Our turkey always does that dance before it gets stuffed.
Oct 10 2007 16:51 GMT jenylew
Thanks Molly, and Yeppers - Alicia dances just like that, AND I usually take her in my arms and waltz her around the kitchen, too!

LMAO I forgot how screwed up that video is...for old times sake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqyc37aOqT0
