I insisted on cooking the turkey this year. Apparently, no one knows how to cook a bird and if you leave it the hand of an old lady, you're asking for disaster.

The key is to get the white meat to finish at 160 degrees just as the dark meat finishes at 180. If you just cook the crap out of it out of fear of e. coli, then why bother? Get some tin foil and cover the breast. Insert probe thermometer and remove at 161 degrees... if the dark meat is undercooked, who cares? Anything over 170 on the white is a disaster.

I made gravy too; 5 tablespoons of butter with 4 cups of the pan drippings plus some white wine and salt/pepper. Awesome.

Happy Day After Thanksgiving...

My wife was one of the crazies who went out this morning, very early, for this 'Black Friday'. She made it back in one piece. :-°

Yeah my wife and her mom (who's down visiting) just left an hour or so ago. They missed the 5:00 rush and were hitting places around 5:30. No thanks. :-o
