Monday, October 29, 2012

This weekend we pretty much had a new version of Thanksgiving dinner.. and it was delicious! 

It was pretty simple and I found a new love while trying these recipes out! The videos are first and then I have some pictures and " notes " below! 

The brine was super easy to make. I was a little nervous about cooking 2 turkey breast in the brine so I am cooking one in the apple cider and 1 with just some salt, pepper, garlic powder and fresh sage. 

Once the turkey was in the oven, I started in on the squash. 

cut it in half.. 

and scrape out the seeds and slice it up. It was hard to slice up so I had Scott do it for me. 

You only need salt, pepper, olive oil and nutmeg.. 

and then roast it in the same oven you are cooking the turkeys in. I took the roasted squash out of the oven after about 15 minutes and let the Turkeys cook a little longer. 

In the mean time I made the browned butter

Just add 2 sticks to a skillet..

Then I fried in fresh sage leaves.. 

until they were nice and crispy! 

OMG.. these are Ammmmazing. I swear.. just try them. They will be so yummy with potatoes! 

The turkeys came out looking great! 

I also quickly sauteed some 

up.. with just some..

olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and nutmeg! 

I served the squash and spinach up together! 

I sliced up the turkey and put it in the apple cider juices.. 

I took the other turkey topped it with some gravy 

This was for husby! 

These were really good too! 

This dinner was really good! 

The boys ate it up.. and I am so happy I tried the fried sage leaves. They are so good.. give it a try!
