Anybody ever de-bone a turkey before cooking?
I follow this guy on Youtube and I'm thinking of trying it.
Not this week though.
I'm a guest for Thanksgiving.

Adam has a lot of good vids, imho.

Didn't watch the whole vid, but it looks & sounds delish.

If anyone wants to do the prep-work, Wosbald is game to do the leg-work. Turkey leg, that is.

Wos, if you've read this thread, you know that a certain poster prominent in the thread will invite folk to sample our cuisine on the thinnest of pretexts...and we have met almost as many Watchers through food occasions as formal Elohimfests.

The prudence of not doxxing yourself by publicly providing a real address is understood, but if you seek an invitation, PM either of us.

If you are Over the Rainbow, travel between there and our Pacific Northwet location ought to be simple.

Sorry, SD. That's very kind. But I was just goofin'. Trying to lighten the mood. I have failed.

Be not so swift to question your goofy lightness!

Despite being generally antisocial, for some reason we take hospitality pretty seriously.
While it is offered freely, there is no shame in declining.

We're all good.

Tonight I'll remove the flour sack towel from the birdie, pat it dry, and refrigerate uncovered overnight to really set in the dry brine. In the meantime, prep continues...


Enhanced homemade poultry bone broth, enriched with the turkey neck, gizzards, heart, onion, carrot, parsnip, and celery.


The strained out giblets and aromatics. Made for a great lunch today.


The enhanced stock strained and defatted, awaiting the turkey drippings to be made in to gravy.


Enhanced mirepoix or trinity, waiting to be mixed in to the crockpot stuffing tomorrow.


Beginning of the cranberry sauce. I forgot the sprig of fresh rosemary prior to taking the photo. I added it after and simmered the sugar syrup an additional few minutes.


Raw cranberries added to the sugar syrup, as well about a shot and a half of bourbon.


The finished cranberry sauce with the orange zest stirred in cooling before packaging for the overnight chill.


Cranberry sauce ready to chill overnight.

Sarge, those of us who know what you do for a living respect that you spent your overly-long day overseeing how the occasion was observed in your facility. I hope all had the best Thanksgiving they might receive...and those working with you are thankful for the time and insight you've devoted to improving operational procedures.

Dinner was served about three hours ago. Timing came together pretty well.


From left to right:
Homemade cranberry orange sauce with rosemary and bourbon
Homemade gravy from giblet stock and turkey drippings in thermos
Keto green bean casserole


Carved whole roasted turkey
Crockpot stuffing


Dam-sel's contributions:
Homemade pumpkin bread
Homemade apple pie


Close up of cranberry sauce


Close up of keto green bean casserole (SD' s contribution)


Close up of whole carved turkey. On the platter is both legs, both thighs, both wings, and one breast


Close up of crockpot stuffing


Homemade gravy still on the stove


My first dinner plate. I definitely had seconds, although much smaller servings of each item.

Night 1 of using the planned overs from our festive meal always falls on Erev Shabbos, so that's easy: Festive Meal Redux. We mostly reheated everything in the microwave.

Night 2 of eating planned overs we try to get a bit more creative. Tonight I made Monte Cristo sandwiches with cranberry orange sauce for dipping, rather than raspberry preserves. We also finished up the green bean casserole for our vegetable.


My version of a Bennigan's Monte Cristo sandwich


Dipped in to cranberry orange sauce with rosemary and bourbon, rather than raspberry preserves

Thank you. I ran the meal from conception to execution.

Tonight's Planned Over Meal #3 was a mashup of Turkey Tetrazzini and kugel executed by SD for a Hanukkah Festive Meal. While it was full on carb with extra wide egg noodles and peas and carrots, no canned Cream of soup was used, SD made the sauce all from scratch.


Tetrazzini Kugel fresh out of the oven.


It didn't hold together the way I think of kugel, but it was definitely tasty!

At this point, there is three cups of turkey left which has been cubed and put in to the freezer for use down the road. The only items left at this point is some stuffing, which I have a plan for, and some pumpkin bread.

To be continued...
