Sorry! Didn't mean to be gone so long. I developed bronchitis the same week I eased Elise out of nursing (and you know what that feels like).
I was so miserable that I didn't even take photos of the best Thanksgiving turkey I've ever roasted! I used my thrifted Romertopf clay baker, which cooked a 12-lb. bird in 2-1/2 hours at 400 degrees. Moist, flavorful, golden-crispy skin--with leftovers so good, I don't even want to reincarnate them as a casserole.
Hope you've had a great holiday! Expect our regular routine to resume (with photos!) tomorrow.
