The heatwave only lasted four days, unfortunately. I seem to be one of the few people out here who actually likes really hot weather.
We went from being in the 90's to dropping back into the high 60's. The only good thing about that was I could turn the oven on again. Tuesday was the perfect day for baking bread.
It was also cool enough to turn the oven on to 500°F to roast the little 10 pound turkey I bought on Sunday and had presalted. I uncovered it Monday night and left it to air dry in the fridge.
We had our traditional sides,
rutabaga, bread stuffing and lots of wonderful rich turkey gravy.
And the best thing about a roast turkey dinner is the leftovers. Dinner last night was hot turkey sandwiches with homemade fries.
The carcass went into the stock pot this morning.
