No turkey for me this year. The apartments had planned a dinner for us Tuesday, but the Sheriff has a huge gathering on Thanksgiving day with bus transportation and all. I'm not going. I'm afraid of getting stuck there, plus I went to something like that before. Cold food, very loud music and hundreds of strangers. No Thanks!
I'll wait until after Christmas to try and pick up a cheap turkey to roast and split with a neighbor.
I'll definitely try adding stock instead of water this time. Actually, knowing me, that's probably what I actually did as the giblet stock would have been right there on the top of the stove at that time.
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
