Another table to set and another family gathering to attend...  No matter how complicated family get togethers get sometimes it is worth it, right?  The turkey to bake, the food to prepare, the fun to be had as the family joins together. It is such a blessing!  Families learn to put up with each other.  It is the one thing you really don’t get to control in life and in some way that very thought is comforting.  I would have picked people all like myself and yet my family has a big range of personalities!  That’s what is so beautiful!  

Well, off I go to bed to wake up in the morning to wash my brine soaking turkey and then cook the funny looking bird...  Yip, that is what I am bringing to the festivities...  That and of course some homemade soup...  Hope I don’t kill the family with an under cooked turkey!  Why do you get so nervous cooking a turkey?  Maybe expect for thanksgiving you never have that big of an animal in your oven unless you are married to a hunter which I am not.  So I am going to try to talk myselfinto not being so nervous and just cook the thing...
