I am glad that the weather was very nice yesterday on Thanksgiving. Mr. Big Guy set up the turkey fryer in the front lawn. We do not need to set up the tent after all. The rain has stopped since Wednesday. I was busy chopping the onions and celery for the stuffing in the kitchen when Mr. Big was setting the fryer in the front yard.
Mr. Big had injected the turkey meat with flavored butter the night before. We are going to fry the turkey around 1:30 pm. It doesn’t take long to fry the whole 12 lbs turkey. We only need about 30 minutes frying time at 300 degree F.
I sautee the onion and celery with a stick of butter as early as at 10 am in the morning.
I then mixed the sausage and the onion with celery before adding the bread and the chicken stock.
I like deep fried turkey. The meat is tender and juicy. We used peanut oil to fry this bird.
Mr. Big likes the stuffing so much. I used chicken with tomato and basil sausage this time. The flavor was sweeter than the Italian sausage. I also add apple to the stuffing. Mr. Big usually mix everything and then bake it in the oven. This time, I cooked the sausage, onion and celery separately before mixing them with the chicken stock. I then bake the stuffing in the oven on low temperature until we are ready to leave the house.
Delicious...my favorite...sweet potato.
My MIL. Thanksgiving dinner went well at Mr. Big’s niece’s house. I was hoping for a quick stop at the shopping mall near to her house after dinner. But it was getting late.
