My daughter Jessica and I made the whole Thanksgiving dinner today. We put the turkey in the oven a few minutes after 10. Then around 2, we started all the sides, she was a big helper and peeled all the potatoes and I cut them and she helped with the gravy and oh it was SO smooth and not lumpy like hubby's always comes out! LOL..we followed the directions unlike him! It was all done and ready to eat a few minutes after 2 and it was delicious! The turkey was so nice and tender and brown..very nice 17 pound turkey! We saved what we could for hubby and put the turkey in the oven on warm for him when he gets home in a few minutes. I wish now that I would of taken a pic of it it was so perty and yummy!
