The color was more than golden brown and the meat temperature was the correct temperature as recommended. I am sorry that i forgot to take a picture of the bird when it came out of the oven as a friend came and i had to help her to make her dish for the potluck. My friend, Meow, had wanted to mashed sweet potatoes as she confessed that that was what she could come with on her own but i told her that i will guide her to something more interesting - Bacon Wraps. While my friend's dish was broiling in the oven, i had to debone the turkey and time was not with me at that moment. With hands full of grease, using the camera was not possible - i will be banned for life from touching the camera if i had tried to use it. Thank goodness that when i had done cutting up the turkey, the owner of the camera appeared, all dolled up pretty and i requested for help although the plating was not compleled. So, at least now i have a picture of my roasted turkey. ok, time to remove the Bacon Wraps from the oven - crispy and unbelievablly fragrant. I will post the recipe in my next posting.
I did not make any Sausage Dressing this year but instead i cooked rice.
