Things were going ok and then pow, time contracted and chaos ruled the house!
I hope you all had an excellent Thanksgiving. We had an excellent time.
Today I am going to step through a few more shots. Food photography in our kitchen is tough so you will have to forgive the somewhat scary images, especially of the turkey!
I toasted baguettes for crostini.
I enlisted grandpa to help with the crostini. Cucumbers, caramelized onions with fig vinegar, roasted garlic, salmon, etc.
They came out beautifully!
I used asparagus fronds as greenery around the house.
Baby O had to watch from his area, drove him nuts.
The turkey was brined overnight.
Roasting pan with onions, olive oil and rosemary.
The turkey is lubed inside and out, salted a bit, stuffed with some garlic and rosemary and roasted breast down for 1 hour and then flipped and roasted until 160 F in the meat (used heat probe) Used foil toward the end.
The sugar in the brine makes for a dark roasted skin color!
While it was cooking the grandparents decorated a gingerbread house with the grandkids.
Shots of the turkey at the table, after nightfall, are always tough!
