For side dishes, I made garlic mashed potatoes and Stove Top Stuffing (didn't take a picture of those), and I roasted some carrots and onions with olive oil and brown sugar. (I put them in the oven for the last 30-40 minutes while the turkey was finishing.)I also made some scrumptious Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus by wrapping half a slice of bacon around each piece of asparagus, and then laying them in a grill pan and baking at 400 F for about 15 minutes. Then instead of turning them over, I just turned the broiler on for about 10 minutes until they looked done. This was quite possibly the most fabulous turkey dinner I've ever laid eyes on. I'm sorry, but I'm not even going to be modest about it. The gravy was heavenly (maple syrup and bacon'll do that), the asparagus was divine (my daughter probably ate 5 pieces), the turkey was juicy and flavourful, the mashed potatoes and carrots were great, and well, Stove Top Stuffing never disappoints either!
Now I have an immense pot of turkey broth to use up (I think I'll make cream of potato soup this weekend), and I have tons of leftover turkey (some of which I'll use for the last entry in my recipe contest tomorrow.)
Happy Thanksgiving in February!!!
