No turkey brining this year
Alas and alack, the providers of the turkey for our Thanksgiving this year bought a Jennie-O pre-basted turkey. Which means I get to do absolutely nothing to it because it would taste funny. Which is a shame, as I've been researching turkey brines and rubs and baking techniques for a solid week. I guess maybe I'll get to use all my newly-acquired turkey knowledge next year. Maybe I can at least make some stuffing (I love homemade stuffing, half in the bird, half out, mix together when they're both done, delicious). The in-laws apparently usually just do StoveTop stuffing. Which is tasty, but I would really like to make my mom's homemade stuffing recipe. So, maybe they'll let me. We'll see.
