Just in case I get busy :)

Hello all of my sweet friends.. For those of you who Celebrate Thanksgiving I wish you a wonderful fun filled day with family and friends.
I thought I would share my Roasted Turkey Bird Recipe with you :)

How to Roast your Bird

1 whole Chicken/Small Turkey
1 Large Lemon, cut into halves
Sprig of Rosemary
Salt and Pepper to taste
Butter or Olive Oil which ever one you prefer

Heat Oven to 350 degrees

Prepare your bird
Rub butter or the olive oil all over the skin of the chicken or small turkey, until its completely coated. Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat.
Slide the lemon halves under the skin with the peels side up. This way the juice of the lemon will coat the breast meat. Season the skin of the Bird to your preference. Place the sprig of Rosemary inside the bird.Cover and place in the oven for 30-40 mins. Remove the cover and continue to roast the bird until juices run clear.
Baste every 15-20 mins depending on the size of your bird. If you follow these steps your bird should look like the one in the picture.

Bon Appetite!!!!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your Thighs

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm just making a small chicken for me and the pets, but thanks for posting the resipe. You know, when I first came to America, I never made a turkey before in my life (having lived in Germany all this time) and tried all sorts of different ways to make them and even purchased one with the pop-out button, but none of them ever came out beter, than the one I bake in the Reynolds wrap plastic bag. They keep the oven clean and cook double time PLUS get nice and brown and picture perfect without having to baste them.

I will do my little chicken in a bag stuffed and surrounded by a bunch of fresh cut up veggies and that will be our one-dish meal tomorrow. All I want is a frozen pumpkin or sweet potatoe pie (if there are any left) with REAL whipped cream. I never understood cool-whip ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving and we'll be chatting soon.
