i almost forgot to post a photo of our thanksgiving “linner” … word around the table was that dry brining produced a crispy skin, a flavor infusion (rosemary and lemon zest) throughout the oh-so-moist-and-tender meat…so, i would say it was a hit! certainly more than my stuffed pumpkin experiment (but there’s always next year). and for your dining pleasure, the turkey was served with asiago mashed potatoes, green beans and a vegetarian dressing (complete with veggie sausages!). dessert was supposed to be pumpkin pie – but turned into pumpkin gingerbread instead – delicious nonetheless! and the tablecloth was a bright and cheery gift, perfect for our casual holiday meal! tune in tomorrow for the first of the holiday decorations – i’m giddy with seasonal cheer!
