This years Thanksgiving was a good one, besides getting a new job things are now falling into place. I also got to indulge myself to a couple of cooking apparatus. I have always wanted to make an awesome turkey dinner but I just never got the time nor the right cooking sets. So I decided to go all out this year. I searched for turkey cookers, turkey oven trays, non-stick cookers for turkeys . . . . you name it I searched and searched. Stores would tell me that they were completely out or that they had no idea what I was looking for. Ugh! One would think that most retail stores would carry them in stock around the Holidays . . .but I was soooo wrong. So I finally went online and found myself a Calphalon Cookware Set, Yay!!
This is similar to what I bought myself, it’s called the Calphalon Turkey Cookware Set.
I have been wanting a set from Calphalon for quite a while now, and I really liked the 5 piece it was a great deal.
My recipe this year was given to me by Bryan, a total genius! Learned that when you mix pineapple juice, vodka and some very special spices the turkey becomes incredibly delicious. I would have never thought of that creation because I was so stuck on the conventional way of cooking a turkey. Thanks Bryan and hope you continue to inspire me. It opened the doors to so many other variations to using this mixture of spices and juices.
Like I mentioned earlier this Thanksgiving was a very special one for me. Besides the food, the pies and all the great beer of course, we had to opportunity to help out in cooking and distributing about 100 turkey dinners. I have always thought that if you can help just a little bit the world and its human race will change for the better! It brings happiness to your heart and hope for others . . . What else can one ask for? If anyone else feels the magic within we can all make a huge difference.
Once again I take this special little moment to thank all the good people around me and my cute little animals that are truly a blessing to me. We (Martha, Bubba, Kristy and I) wish you all a very good Holiday this year and the many, many to come. We pray for peace and joy and hope that we all can grow to see a better tomorrow. Please send me a message if you would like to join (fill a belly) for Christmas, I will admit we do need Volunteers.
