Men Who Stared at Turkeys

This vegetarian family is entertaining guests today, so we, too, are preparing a turkey.  Bought it from the Hutterite Colony.  Supposed to be free of any growth hormones or genetically-modified-organisms. Our happy bird snuggled down into oven for an overnight roast.  Just could not bring ourselves to prepare the giblets, those internal organs that are set aside in a little bag, usually for the dressing and/or the gravy.  Nope.  The gizzard, liver, heart, lungs and whatever else is in that little bag will be going into the freezer until garbage day.  

Have a terrific Thanksgiving and don't forget, "thanksgiving" is also an action verb.

Here is a link to a previous post entitled "A Turkey Named Marie Antoinette"

This is a photo of our Marie Antoinette:

"Marie Antoinette" was saved from the slaughter, to live another year.

I have never heard of roasting a turkey overnight. How big was the turkey, at what temp did you roast it and for how long.
