Now, lets see if I can remember everything I have cooked over this past month. Maybe it would be better to just tell my story visually. I did get a great new camera for my birthday, which has allowed me to take some wonderful pictures of my little pocket creations.
Before I tell you about the fantabulous empanadas I made for Thanksgiving, take a look at what I have been up to over the past month.
Now I am sure you are curious about these 7 turkeys I mentioned. Well, I had originally planned on us having an apricot and herb glazed Turkey stuffed with citrus, garlic and onions, and my dad was going to fry up a bird, like we always do. Even though that would have been enough for 18 people, my Aunt Trudy decided she wanted to make a slow roasted Jack Daniels Turkey, and my Uncle Andy smoked a Turkey breast. That's four birds. Well, since we were frying up a bird, and we need so much oil (approximately 4 gallons) we told people to head on over with their own Turkey that they could fry up and take home as a party favor. So, my dad spent the entire afternoon frying up Turkeys for everyone. Unfortunately, as was expected, there was way too much Turkey and we didnt even get to carve the fried turkey to eat on Thanksgiving! Next year we will make sure that if my dad is out there frying all day, that the fried Turkey will be the main event of the meal and it will not go uneaten! Here are some pics from the day and meal:
