corazon you certainly have the market on cute boys. He is so very cute!
Licia, gravy was a concern of mine as that is my favorite part of the meal usually LOL. Mom was a bit concerned as well. What she ended up doing was buying some gravy from the turkey farm down the street. Their gravy is amazing to begin with so we were all OK with that. Mom also did something with the giblets and made a gravy out of those, but I am not exactly sure what she did. I will have to find out. I do know that any juice that came out of the bird while carving was poured into the giblet gravy.
Lugaru, bacon topped turkey sounds amazing (although so do bacon topped beef or bacon topped fish, bacon topped ice cream...
). I will have to try that some day.
