Early Thanksgiving Prep
Just wanted to share some beautiful fall photos of the farm on the blog today. Also, can you believe thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away? 

Just wanted to send out a friendly reminder to do all your early thanksgiving prep now vs waiting until the last minute. Get your grocery shopping done as soon as possible to avoid long lines at the store. Prepare garnishes, toppings, stuffing ingredients, and anything you can store ahead of time now. Cook soups and freeze them in advance, then you can just reheat the day of. If your stuffing recipe calls for stale bread, cut the bread a few days ahead of time and set the cubes on a baking sheet to dry out. 

Do you have anything early Thanksgiving prep ideas you can share with us? 

Turkey Roast - Cooking for Two During The Holidays
Not all of us have large families, so cooking a large turkey or ham for a holiday meal is not only labor intensive, but it's impractical. When you don't live near family, or if you have a small family, a wonderful alternative for a festive meal is making a turkey roast. Turkey Roast's are much smaller and more affordable than regular turkeys, and also much easier to make. They are the perfect size for a small family, and still leave enough for leftovers the next day. 

3 pound turkey roast
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 tsp dried thyme 
1 tsp dried sage
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
Salt & Pepper

Place your turkey in a large baking dish. In the bottom of the dish, pour your wine and broth. Coat your turkey roast with your butter, then sprinkle liberally with your thyme, sage, and salt and pepper. Bake at 325 degrees for 2-3 hours or until your roast reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. 

This recipe is easy and delicious and will leave you with a moist and flavorful way to enjoy turkey that doesn't require any stress. Enjoy!
