Thanksgiving in June

I was cleaning out my desk a couple days ago and found the Nov 2009 Sunset magazine. (hmm, maybe I should re-think renewing my subscription since I clearly do not read the magazine). So there was a recipe for turkey with herbs and wine. It sounded yummy and easy - a perfect combination for me. It was easy to convince the butcher at Stater Bros to cut up a fresh turkey from the case into 7 pieces and de-bone the thighs.

I found the fresh sage, thyme and rosemary in the produce dept. (nose-thumb back to those of you with wonderful kitchen gardens) The recipe called for Marsala. Hmm, is that another herb? Googled it, it's a Sicilian wine. So I use cooking wine to roast the turkey in my roaster and then simmer Marsala (the California kind), more herbs and red currant jelly to make a gravy.

I am making mashed potatoes and carrots. I figure if Terry recognizes 2 out of 3 of the foods on his plate, he'll probably eat it.

Linda that sounds pretty darned good. Will the pictures be of the bird or Terry eating the bird??

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
