30 Day Photo Challenge: Day 16

Yesterday, I had the need to feel human -- and have a normal challenge not medically related. So, I made a turkey that Pete had got from work a while back. First time making turkey ever, and it turned out delicious!

On the menu:
  • Roast turkey with vegetables (I used more vegetables than called for -- enough to stuff the turkey + juice from a whole lemon; fresh herbs, and mixed parsley and celery when I stuffed the neck region)
  • Roasted asparagus (easy -- toss asparagus with olive oil and a bit of salt, put in 350-400 degree oven for ~10 min, turn cook another 10 min)
  • Mashed potatoes and gravy
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Cesar salad
  • Croissants
  • Strawberry Angel Food Cake.
It tasted good to have a real home cooked meal -- certainly better than my usual dinner of cold cereal! :) While we now have a LOT of leftovers and will be eating good for a while -- making this reminded me of the many reasons why I have not made a big meal in the apartment yet!

Eta: We do not have a table in our apartment. These pics were taken on my desk. Our apartment does not have enough room for 2 desks and a table , so we just have 2 desks!
