Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey
Tried to find the perfect turkey recipe over a lot of years and finally I found it! This will be my go to every Thanksgiving. I used a turkey roasting bag and also rubbed some of the seasoning under the skin. I used a dry champagne because I didn't want a sweet gravy. These drippings made a wonderful gravy. The following is how I made my gravy if you are interested. I make my turkey the day before Thanksgiving. Take all the meat off the bone and place in a zip lock bag with enough drippings to keep the turkey moist and then refrigerate. Place the remaining drippings in a zip lock bag and refrigerate overnight. The Next Day: Warm the turkey in a crock pot with just enough added chicken stock to keep moist. The fat in the drippings bag will gel and come to the top of the bag. I skim the fat off the top and warm the remaining drippings in a pan with 8 cups of chicken stock and a couple sprigs of rosemary. Meanwhile in a large pan make a roux by melting 4 tablespoons of butter and then sprinkle ½ cup of flour into butter. (I double this so I have extra roux if I need more thickener) Cook on medium heat for 4 minutes. Gradually add the warmed broth to roux stirring with a wisk. Heat on medium high heat until desired thickness. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour through sifter to remove rosemary and any clumps of roux. Keep warm in pan or crockpot.

Traci's Chicken Noodle Casserole
Excellent: After combining reviews here are my adjustments. You do not need to make a day ahead. I used 1 large rotisserie chicken deboned; 1 can cream of celery and 1 can cream of chicken with herbs, sautéed onion in 3 tablespoons of butter and added 1 clove pressed garlic and sautéed for 5 minutes more stirring; 1 1/2 cups Colby Jack cheese in place of velveeta; mixed in about 1/2 cup Fried Onions and the last 5 minutes of baking sprinkled remaining container of Fried Onions over top.
