Rosemary Roasted Turkey
Every year for Thanksgiving my Father roasts the turkey and this past year for Thanksgiving I was brave enough to take on the challenge. This Rosemary Turkey recipe was by far the best turkey that my family has ever tasted. I was praised for a job well done and asked to do the turkey again for Christmas that same year. The turkey was perfectly cooked, moist, tender, extremely flavorful. Before making this turkey I researched/read many of the reviews and I decided to put my 12-lb. turkey in a 2 1/2 day brine. The brine consisted of freshly juiced lemons and oranges, peppercorn, freshly chopped basil and rosemary, brown sugar, salt, and water. Thanksgiving day I rubbed the olive oil mixture that I made the night before all over the turkey and under the turkey skin. Then, I stuffed it with 2 halved lemons and onions, 8 cloves of pounded garlic, and four sprigs of rosemary. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this recipe to anyone who is cooking turkey for the first time! It was such a great recipe! It's perfect for whole chickens tOo! I can't wait till next Thanksgiving!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes
I read most of the reviews before making dish and saw that people didn't really do the "day before" part and just did it the morning of, so I did the same thing. It was different from the traditional mashed potatoes that I'm used to. However, it was a GOOD different and I will definitely be using this recipe again.

Sauteed Green Beans
For my version of the Sauteed Green Beans I used an entire package of Turkey bacon, a large Vidalia onion, and 4 cloves of garlic all sauteed in one pan. I then added 2 thoroughly strained frozen green bean packages and 1/2 cup of toasted halved almonds. This was a hit during dinner!! It was light and extremely flavorful.
