I’m kicking back on the couch after another fine Turkey diner. Today’s was mine cooked in the dutch oven. It has become our household favorite. Yesterday we had a Turkey diner down at my brother’s in Denver. His was more traditional with stuffing inside etc. At 19 pounds his beat mine by a bit. My dutch oven is pretty big but a bird that big is just not going to fit. I had a little trouble getting my 12 pounder inside. Tori and I were the only ones eating it today, even though the girls are here…for some odd ball reason they have yet to fall in love with slow roasted turkeys. Tori and I went super simple on the secondary fixin’s with some basic cornbread stove top stuffing. I was able to prep the bird in about 5 min…slow roasted it all day and then about another 15 minute for cranberries with honey and the stuffing. With it being that simple we may have to do this more often.
The bird came out looking just like last time as seen in this post.
I’ve spent the last few days tweaking the Bookcases I completed a couple of weeks ago. It seems that the powder post beetles have been awakened by the warm temps in my clients home. They never really came to life when I was working in the shop since it is so cold down there. I think I have got the problem squared away with some borate treatments and some additional sealing with some CA. I’ve got just a little touch up finishing to do.
Tori and I will be heading down to the cabin for the actual Thanksgiving break. Life at the cabin will be thankful indeed. I’ve got another dozen pieces of Blue Stain T&G and hope to get some tyvek up on the back of the cabin. The front is looking pretty good since my painting over the 4th. Has it really been that long?
