Be sure to check out these previous posts: Vanilla Rosemary Lemonade, Edible Gift In A Jar: Vegetarian Five Bean Soup Mix, How To Build The Perfect Cheese Board, Dinner Party Guest Invite: How To, Healthy Beet & Feta Salad, Fluffy Whole Wheat Parmesan Garlic Rolls, Simple & Modern Centerpiece Ideas and How To Fold A Napkin. Things are coming together and I don’t know about you but I am loving it! I have been wanting to try a new twist on the traditional Thanksgiving turkey – and while this isn’t wildly different, it’s just different enough!

For this portion of the meal I used the IKEA APTITLIG Bamboo Butcher Block, IKEA VÖRDA Black Chef’s Knife,IKEA VÖRDA Black Carving Knife and Fork, and IKEA SENIOR Off-White White Casserole With Lid. For a turkey, I’d say this is a fairly simple recipe. If you’ve never brined a turkey before I HIGHLY recommend it. It makes your meat so much more tender – you probably won’t even believe it. No more dry turkey!
