The Turkey Chronicles: Meal 4 & 5

Yesterday was a repeat of meals 3 and 4. Still good. Still not tired of it yet.

However, there will be a short break from the regularly scheduled turkey which will be resumed on Sunday.

The Turkey Chronicles: Meal 4

Simmered the bones with meat still on them in a large stockpot for three or four hours. Took bones out. Picked meat off the bones. Threw meat back in the pot. Seasoned with lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano. Simmered some more on the stove. Stuck in the fridge for later.

Heated it up tonight. Poured it over some cooked pasta and we had turkey noodle soup. Husband thought it was bland, but I found the broth to be tasty. Enough leftover for some more soup tomorrow.

On Sunday, I want to make turkey tetrazzini casserole.

The Turkey Chronicles: Meal 2

I threw a couple of slices of the cooked turkey breast in a skillet with olive oil, lightly browned it on each side, and then let it finish heating up in a small pool of cooking wine.

The Turkey Chronicles: Meal 1

In the spring when Price Rite opened, my husband lugged home a 14 lb turkey for $4. I scoffed at the turkey. Seriously, he wanted us to roast a turkey? Then I grew resentful at the turkey taking up such a large space in the freezer. But this month, with the grocery budget tight from Christmas, the turkey became my friend. And I'm going to see how far a roasted turkey can get us.

Meal 1: I roasted the turkey. It had a lovely brown crispy skin and a fragrant smell. In my vanity, I sacrificed juiciness for appearance for my turkey was dry. But the gravy I made tasted fabulous. We carved it up and had a few pieces to eat for dinner.

Byron Brown

My blog post about Byron Brown is a little more amusing than Joshua's.

My mom and I did the City Hall tour and during the tour you get to go into the Mayor's office. It's a large room with 2 or 3 office rooms inside that room.

Byron Brown was in the main office area. He stopped and greeted my mom and me. And my mom stuck out her hand right out and said, "Hi Byron, how are you."

I couldn't stop laughing for the rest of the day that my mom was on first name basis with the mayor.

Known to me as another

There is an artist played on the Top 40 Country radio stationa whose songs I enjoy but I don't really know much about him.

I got a chance to watch Country Music Television and saw a couple of videos by this artist. Turns out he's African American. Not exactly a common occurrence in Top 40 Country. I was intrigued and he looked familiar to me.

So I googled him. He was the lead singer from Hootie and The Blowfish - who I only knew as Hootie... and I now know as country singer Darius Ruckers. And I like him. Huh.

If any one is interested in the first book in the Twilight Series, I'd be happy to give it to you.

I picked it up to read when I was down sick out of curiosity and because I LOVED Anne Rice's Vampire series. It paled in comparison to Anne Rice's stories...

So I don't really want it, but I really hate throwing things away if someone else would like it, so just give me a holler.
