Caution- Cooking Ahead

Although I do a fair number of cooking posts, it's because they are sort of events. Those who know me well know that my mantra is "I've already fulfilled my lifetime quota of cooking."

That said, I can be coerced into the activity given one or more of the following:

1. I prefer my own cooking to processed foods, and most restaurant foods, so I must cook if I want to eat some things.

2. Someone is going to eat it that really appreciates it.

3. Some or all of the key ingredients were free.

So, about a month ago, our Josh walked in the door carrying a not insignificant frozen turkey. He won it! All 19 pounds of it. He doesn't even like turkey.

There's no way I'm doing that for two of us. However, there is a party at work tomorrow. Solution. Except this means I have to cook. Bragging shamelessly, I will say that my turkeys (my Mom's actually) are significantly good.

This has to be ready to eat at noon tomorrow. That means it has to go in the oven at 4 am. Hmmm. Doing the stuffing this evening.

Most to share. Some to keep back for us.

Apparently it's been 3 years since I did one of Mom's turkeys. I suppose it's time. Link to previous one below.

I'm a bit hungry now. What time did you say your party is?...lol
I don't do much cooking any more and it's hard to cook for just 2 people

It used to be the turkey's turn, but soon someone else will be going gobble gobble. Hope it turns out well for you.
