The Day After
We had a nice and quiet Thanksgiving. My mom shared the meal with us and brought her famous sweet potato and marshmallow casserole (we still haven't found anybody that doesn't like it). I tried a new recipe for the turkey this year, the biggest change was that I used convection baking. Instead of basting with my standard butter/wine mixture I used a Cuban-style recipe and basted with butter,olive oil and spices; I also used a rub the day before to marinate. This is the best turkey I have ever made!It was so juicy and flavorful that I will repeat the recipe/cooking technique next year.
I was tempted to go out and do some shopping but it was so crazy the day before Thanksgiving that I didn't want to be in the middle of it again. Maybe tomorrow...
