Ours was really pretty good! I started defrosting the turkey in a water bath on Wednesday morning. I'm thinking that this was the first time I've cooked a fully defrosted turkey. Now I understand why my turkey has always taken MUCH longer to cook than it was supposed to. (Duh!)
Wednesday night I put the turkey in the brine and let it marinade over night. I also precooked the potatoes and yams so there would be one less thing to do.
Thursday morning the turkey went in and was beautifully brown (and moist!) right on time. All of the food was great, except for my pumpkin pie. :( It wasn't bad, just blah I guess.
So how was your turkey day? Any big hits or big misses?
