Hi Bessie,

There are other places?!?!? TELL ME IT ISN'T SO!!! :-)

Okay, silliness aside,

1) where do you hail from?

2) most importantly, what is your favorite poultry seasonings?
(Broaden my horizons.)

-T

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to appreciate the ones
you love, show off your cooking skill learned from the
year, and thank God for your blessings. (And scam
a bunch of hugs from your loved ones.)


I would assume that the posters that it applied to would respond, others
wouldn't, but sometimes people just want to be ****y and take exception to
even the most innocent posts. Myself, I am going to use applewood smoked sea
salt, pepper, and whatever else suits my fancy. I am going to cook it like
Trisha Yearwood since it worked out really well when I tried it. No, I don't
think she's much of a cook, but the 12.5 pound turkey works well this way.
What are you having to go with your turkey?

No clue. I've managed to live my life as the recipient of almost all
Thanksgiving meals. The one I did cook was many many moons ago when my
roommate and I seasoned our Turkey, and everything else, with a too
generous portion of red wine. All I remember is the whole evening being
fun. (-:

I use the same seasoning plus sage which I only use during the holidays for
the turkey and stuffing making it special and I use fresh quick diced and
blended into butter which I rub under the skin and everywhere.

then I cut up celery and extra herbs and carrots and root veggies and onion
and garlic to put around it and loosely inside the cavity.

I make the stuffing/dressing separate and bake in a glass dish because
stuffing cooked in the bird can make you sick if it doesnt reach
temperature inside the bird and it tastes as good outside the bird.

other then that the only other secret is to cook it 2 thirds of its cook
time covered and last third uncovered and basted to make a crispy golden
skin.

my turkey has always been picture perfect and moist and delicious.

AFter some 17 years on Metformin(ex) it hasn't happened to me. No
personality issues at all. It just does bohter me when people make
blanket statements about a drug, etc that just aren't true. for many of
us Metformin works very well adn the extended release versions solves the
major probleminvolving gastric issues. I find I keep havign to repeat
this almost every time Todd talks about the drug.

There are always peole who find a certain drug disagrees with them. the
next thing you know, is that they are condemning it for everyone and on a
food group , not a group about the medical issues of the disease.

We were discussing turkey recipes not drugs here.

Yes. I am getting tired of this as well. Not sure how many years I have
taken it but off and on (mostly on I suppose) for close to 15 years. My dad
takes it and so does Angela. It did give her the big D at the highest dose.
But luckily, 1500 mg works out well for her. Is enough to bring the insulin
resistance and her A1c down. Insulin resistance is still too high but A1c
is in normal range.

If anything, it *improved* our personalities because we just didn't feel
well prior to taking it. I was very snappish. Partially due to having
chronic big D myself, presumably from the high BG. And I was constantly
hungry. Took months for the big D to go away, but I also didn't know of my
food intolerances back then and I was eating a lot of eggs and cottage
cheese. I'm sure that didn't help. And neither did my being hyperthyroid.
That caused the food to rush right through me. Clearly there is no one size
fits all here.

I have had bad reactions to many meds. But I would never assume that others
will have the same. Of course if I do see/hear someone complaining of those
side effects and I know they are on that med, I will mention it. But I
won't just assume that because I can't take it, they can't either.

Also, there can be a variety of reasons why a med causes us problems.
Thankfully the big D isn't chronic for me now but... When it was, I bought
the Kirkland (Costco) brand of Imodium and got really annoyed when it only
seemed to make the problem worse. Then I read online that it has dairy in
it. Oops! There was me, failing to do what I know to do. Read every
label, every time! Sometimes it isn't the med itself that we are reacting
to but a color or filler or...who knows?

Same goes for two eye ointments that cause me to have an allergic reaction.
It isn't the med. I can use that med topically and no problem. But when
put in an eye ointment, big problem!

There are always peole who find a certain drug disagrees with them. the
next thing you know, is that they are condemning it for everyone and on a
food group , not a group about the medical issues of the disease.

Yes, we were. I need to locate some drumsticks and look up a recipe but...
I think the only seasonings I used were celery and onion when I made them.
There may have been salt, pepper, parsley and even sage but it wasn't
exotic. I do know that the year I did them BBQ style, he did not like them.

You wouldn't know, unless others around you complain. It
sneaks up on you.

Nonsense! There are days when I am a bitch and I do know it! I will even
warn those around me not to mess with me then. Thankfully it happens far
less now than it did when I was younger. Probably hormone related. I would
just wake up and realize that nothing was going to please me that day. Not
even food! So not a good time to go out to eat. Best I should just not get
dressed and try to sleep if off if I can. I don't work now but if I do
have to go out, I try to avoid people as best I can. If I have to shop, it
is a quick in and out trip.


Especially when numbers are high!

Met+ crabby nasty person. I really don't see the evidence for this and

are crabby when talking to someoone who doesn't accuse them of, by
definition, haveign to be crabby

D you cook the stuffing(outside the bird, of course) before or after you
have frozen it? I usually do mine up on Wednsaady adn refrig it unbaked
adn then put it in under the turkey(on a lower shelf, not in the pan with
the bird) for a hour or so so it is freshly cooked.

Unless you use either hot or smoked paprica addign it toanything mostly
will turn it redder but not add much taste.

Bells is a nice combination and makes the job easier. also try getting
turkey parts with the skin on rather than cutlets which are rather dull
and require all that frying. You can get drumsticks, wings thighs, bottom
quatrters breasts, half breasts, with and without bones. I prefer with
bones as it adds flavor to the meat and keeps is from getting too dry.
Left-over carcase bones add to soups too.

As a single person I sometimes buy turkey parts during the
non-thanksgiving time of theyear adn have roast turkey by seasonng it up
like my thanksgiving bird and enjoying a half breas or a few drumsticks or
a thigh for a few days of nice eating.

if your pan frying cutlets the best way is to use lots of butte and herbs on
medium heat and spooning the butter over them over and over.

dont get distracted..its not exciting but man it will taste like heaven if
you do it.

I pan fry cutlets. The whole bird to too much for me and I
don't have an oven available). I love your technique of adding
celery and carrots and extra spices (they go everywhere anyway).

No skin on the cutlets. I use tons of butter.

My biggest problem is not standing here with the spatula,
getting distracted (same with eggs), and over cooking things.

Thank your for sharing!
