but I had to share how great my turkey turned out this year. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad turkey. In fact all have been at least above average, but this year the turkey was beyond fabulous ..... even if I do say so myself. I am so proud of that bird that I made DH take a picture before carving it up. However, for me the greatest compliment was that after all was said and done (16 people total) there was less than half a pound left of the seven pound ham that was brought and my 27 lb turkey has less than one pound of meat left over. Any who, in all my geeky glory I wanted to share the bird.
