Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe Recommendation

by Jamie Sanford on November 23, 2011

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I don’t really cook at all, but I have been sharing the hell out of this turkey preparation recipe that my husband will be using tomorrow to make turkey for us.  Naturally I see no other choice but to share it here as well.

Click here for the cheesecloth magic that Martha Stewart uses to make a turkey, that has been used to GREAT success in my house for the last few years.

Another shot of the turkey.Here’s a look at last year’s finished turkey.  The little potatoes and carrots around them were cooked with the breast, and were basted in the same liquid.  Super delicious but we learned a lesson about the carrots being too small and burning and getting very sad.  The non-blackened carrots were fabulous.

I’m serious people, you have time to alter your plans for how to cook the turkey.  This recipe involves coating the turkey in cheesecloth SOAKED in wine and butter.  It is no joke, and it is crazy delicious.  The turkey will be moist and yummy and the veggies you cook along with it will be outrageous as well.

Of course, I know people have attitude about how to make things like turkeys, so please leave your comments and preferences in the comments! Also, of course, Happy Thanksgiving!

Happiness is a Word Cloud of Praise

Word Cloud of Jamie

Christopher S. Penn sent along this idea in his recent email newsletter.

Here’s a personal branding tip to help you clarify who you are and what you do. Collect all of your recommendations from LinkedIn, all the complimentary tweets about you on Twitter, and any other place you’re likely to have nice words about you. Stuff them all into Wordle and see very clearly the words other people use to describe you. This is very powerful, especially if you’re at a loss for words to describe yourself on resumes, web sites, etc.

So, I used my LinkedIn recommendations to create the cloud you see here.  I’m really pleased with it.

What would your word cloud look like? Will you be happy with the words that show up?
