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.
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.
