The turkey turned out great.
Better late than never. I'm cooking a $60 organic turkey today, compliments of my daughter who had 4 turkeys in the farm's walk-in freezer. (They traded veggies for them.) She wants to use them before freezer burn affects their taste. (I'll let you know if so.)
Her family is coming over to help eat it. I haven't had turkey in several years, so I'm looking forward to it. Emily will bring mashed potatoes and "greens". I have freezer corn to add. Plus, I made a "pear-sauce" cake (using a recipe for applesauce cake).
We had a noodle casserole. In it was steamed cauliflower, and some mushrooms, onions, and gatlic that I sauteed before mixing i to the noodles. It had a roux made with flour, water, and tapioca starch, and a bouillon cube. And on top, bread crumbs and Romano cheese.
I wasn't up to more. But this was pretty good.
Turkey, the one time per year we have it.
Probably pasta from whatever we can find. Making a meal together on a lazy day is nice.
So what's for Christmas dinner, you all?
It's Christmas eve day and I haven't decided yet! When I mentioned to my daughter I haven't had turkey for 2 years, she said she had a couple organic turkeys in the freezer and would give me one. But she hasn't. And it's too late to thaw. Probably has freezer burn, too.
I'll come up with something. At least I have dessert: sweet potato pecan pie (with persimmon). Yum.
When I was rummaging through the freezer searching for slaw, I found not only rhubarb and gooseberries, but zucchini slices. So, I whipped up a casserole adding green beans, asparagus, corn, and onions. Poured mushroom soup over it, and topped with sharp cheddar cheese and oyster crackers. Seasoned, of course. Bet you won't find that combination in any recipe book! (Butternut squash as a side dish.)
Yes, doughs develop a ''feel'', & I have been doing our breads for 54 years.
I seldom follow recipes.
