Prepare to be Impressed

Look what I made.

It's turkey. Yup. Turkey. We bought one too many turkeys for Thanksgiving and I hated to see it go to waste. Tony and I (mostly Tony) are trying to eat better. Eating better does not include frying a turkey.

So here I come with my big crock pot and chick broth.
I know I know. You're wondering what the impressive part is. Crockpot=easy.

I SKINNED THAT TURKEY. What?!? Oh yes I did. It was gross!!! So much, I don't even want to talk about it anymore. But to be healthy, I put on my big girl mommy pants and made that turkey healthy! Carsyn watched from her highchair while eating Peas and Puffs.

Tonight she got to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
It was a hit. But Daddy's home and who cares about food now.


  1. Crystal, you are awesome! I totally appreciate the whole skinning issue. Just skinning store bought chicken was gross enough. The best invention ever is precut and preskinned chicken. Maybe turkey is next!

    Carsyn, your mommy and Aunt Misty were just in love with their daddy as you are. Nothing else could compete when he walked in the door.

    Crystal and Carsyn, you are both sweeties! Tell your daddy hello.
    Love ya,

  2. Oh, Carsyn you are trying to share with your Mommy. That is so sweet.
    Crystal you rock. I'm afraid to make a roast. :)
