Alton Brown is my hero. You might remember my first interaction with him away from the monitor/TV screen here. So when it came to my turkey this year, there was not a second of hesitation of who I'd call to help me out in the kitchen.
My quest began with finding a hefty bird and pulling out this trusty recipe. The only modification I wanted to make this year was buying a bigger turkey so that I could have leftovers. That's right, I wanted to experience slapping cranberry sauce and tender turkey meat between two slices of bread or rolls.
So it began, again. Here's what happened over the course of approximately 3 days:

|Who needs Love Potion #9?|
|It's like a spa.|
|Mr. Woo's contribution.|
|How Mr. Woo prepares for the "big moment," aka carving the turkey. Requests a special knife.|
|I went for a more rustic look this year.|

Oh, the memories. :)
Thank you to everyone who joined us this Thanksgiving! And y'all who spent time at home, I hope it was a blessed time together!
The taste of success. I really wanted a drumstick this year.
Did you notice any changes in our living since last year?
