My little guy has been sick since friday and I was worried that he would either still be sick tomorrow and demanding all my attention, or worse would pass the bug to me. So I thought it would be best to do as much as I could today. As of now he's looking better and I'm not sick yet, so we could wind up having a very laid back thanksgiving with only a turkey and biscuits to cook!
For the first time in maybe 10 years I'm trying a new turkey recipe. I found it on Martha Stewart's website. About 10 years ago I made a recipe for turkey on the grill that involves overnight brining and adding a packet of wood chips to the coals to give the bird a nice, smoky flavor. It's so good I've made it every year. But this year I find myself without a grill. Over the summer during a mad purge I threw ours out (it was gross!) and since summer was 1/2 over I thought I'd try to find one on sale somewhere. But somehow I let it get away from me and never bought a new grill. So we'll try this Martha recipe this year and see how it goes.
