Thanksgiving - A time to reflect on the things in our lives that we are grateful for. Even for those who have not had the best of years - things could always be worse. For us 2010 was a great year, building on the year before - another great year. We are thankful that we have had the opportunity to help dozens of struggling homeowners with a successful short sale.
This weekend we stop and give thanks for all the blessings we have.... Time to celebrate with our families and friends, and to be truly thankful we live in such a great country where we enjoy the many freedoms others do not, that we take for granted.
We celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving in October, and as a long standing tradition, much like our American friends, most of us will enjoy a turkey dinner.
Here are some tips on how to prepare your turkey.
•1. That the frozen turkey in the refrigerator, not on the counter. This may take a day or two so remember to take it out of the freezer a day or two beforehand.
•2. To prepare your turkey for roasting, remove all the wrappings and the packing containing the heart, liver etc. Remove the neck and rinse the turkey thoroughly, both inside and out, and pat dry.
•3. You can either brush the bird with butter or insert herbs and butterunder the skin for added flavor. One thing I learned from my grandmother as a child, was to crush a few cloves of garlic, add salt and pepper and cut together to a very fine coonsistency with a knife.
•4. Make a few slits on the skin and place the mixture under the skin in a few areas... then brush with olive oil or butter.
•5. Put in roasting pan and add a small amount of olive oil or water in the pan to prevent sticking. Cover the pan and roast in a 350 degree oven, usually about 30/minute per pound (without stuffing). Remove foil about 30-45 minutes before turkey is cooked to allow the skin to brown.
•6. Pierce with a knife to test if cooked. Juice should run clear when thoroughly cooked.
Now dig in and enjoy!!! And ... be prepared to have a nap after dinner...
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends and colleagues!
