At Shutter Sisters I have seen some amazing images of hearts that photographers have found. I often think, “Gee, it would be so cool to find an unintentional heart!” Well, I found one! Yippee! I put my bowl on the kitchen counter to make guacamole and there it was! The coolest thing was that if I rotated the bowl even just a little bit the image inside was no longer a heart! Amazing! Go check out more images of love at chookooloonks!
In black and white, of course, for November in black and white!
And now, on to the Turkey part of the post! I need some Turkey advice. In the many years that I have been making a Thanksgiving turkey there is only one time that I made a good one. I have tried both food store Butterballs (and other brands) and butcher shop organics and they all come out dry and tough and tasteless. I thought for sure last year’s turkey was going to be great. I spent something like $76.00 on it (Yipes!) It was a butcher shop organic but I don’t remember the farm name. I brined it overnight. I followed the butcher’s cooking instructions. Blech! Same old dried out tasteless thing. Oh, I should also mention that I have a terrible fear of salmonella, so I do cook it to an internal temperature of 180 degrees. (Oops, I just checked the USDA Turkey Fact Sheet and they say an internal temp of 165 degrees is safe!) Maybe that’s part of my problem. But, I don’t just want a safe turkey, I want a delicious turkey!!! I would love to hear your advice for a tasty bird!
