Mid-Week Roast Turkey Dinner


Fresh turkeys were on for a really good price over Easter.  So I bought two small fresh turkeys, both just under 10 pounds each, and froze them.   
Pulled one out Sunday to defrost.  
I presalted the turkey Monday night and wrapped tightly with plastic wrap.  
Tuesday night I unwrapped the turkey and left it uncovered so that it could air dry in the fridge.  
This makes for a golden crispy skin.


Our dinner last night was our traditional turkey dinner with all the sides. 

 
Stuffing/Dressing,  rutabaga and Brussels Sprouts.  
 I prepared the Brussels Sprouts my new favourite way - roasted and seasoned with fresh garlic and lemon.


and of course mashed potatoes and gravy.


This turkey was an organic turkey from Rossdown Farms, Abbotsford, BC
