Almost everyone knows (and I think most agree) that one of the best parts of roasting a turkey is the left overs. This turkey (and I swear I'll stop talking about it after this post) is tender, rich, flavorful and juicy. It doesn't even need gravy- but, of course a good dose of gravy didn't hurt it at all.
After a great brunch with friends on Sunday, we all headed out to Kringle Candle and Yankee Candle for our annual field trip. We didn't have a lot of budget, but we had saved up a bit for some seasonal candles to keep the farm house smelling sweet throughout the winter. Mostly, the trip was about spending time with some dear friends taking ridiculous pictures with even more ridiculous holiday decorations. A good use of a Sunday!
By the time we got home, it was dark and chilly, but the wood stove had done her duty and kept the farm house fairly warm. After checking in on our critters, I whipped up a quick batch of biscuits. While they were baking, I stoked the fire and set to work on gravy with left over turkey. In a half an hour, we were curled up with warm bowls and sleepy dogs.
The farm isn't always picture perfect moments or easy going days. But when it is, boy it is.
