Bird is the Word: Getting Ready for Thanksgiving
I distinctly remember the first Thanksgiving I hosted on my own. My fiance, Rob, and I had a home in North Carolina and we had just remodeled the kitchen (with our own two hands). I wanted to leave my mark on the meal and I decided the turkey was the thing to tackle. Everything I had read about turkey indicated that brining was the only way to go.
For some reason (at least in our families) the men always seemed to be responsible for the turkey, so I had to stake my claim that the bird was mine and the bird would be brined.
The turkey turned out amazing. And it was really quite easy, probably the easiest part of pulling together the feast.
We have three turkey videos this Thanksgiving because I’m just a tad bit obsessed about making sure the turkey turns out damn good. The turkey itself (love this Heritage variety), how to brine it, and the tools for roasting. Hit me up on Facebook if you have questions about preparing your turkey this year!
