We had a mellow Thanksgiving with Matt’s brother, who came over for a couple days from his college in Minnesota. What a treat that we were able to spend Thanksgiving with family after moving so far away from family. The turkey we made was the best any of us has ever eaten: even the white meat was super moist and tender. And it only took 2-ish hours to cook. I used these videos from Alton Brown as my guide, and before prep and cooking I soaked it overnight in a salt-sugar brine. Definitely the new winner. Armed with a fridge full of leftovers, we’re on to more weekending with Matt off work and Brandon here to play.
